Snapshot: Dubai, UAE

Snapshots are mini town/city guides for smaller places or cities I have only experienced briefly. Here’s a little snapshot of Dubai.

What are one’s first impressions of Dubai?

Dubai Skyline & Burj Khalifa

What a melting pot! I’ve never seen a city so full of non-nationals. Where are the locals? First impressions: all the guys are Indian and all the girls are Filipina. (Turns out approximately 85% of the population are expats). The skyline is incredible, with the Burj Kalifa, the world’s tallest building, piercing the sky in the distance. Everything is new and shiny. Taxis and food are dirt cheap, too. Overall, the vibe is great. Until you get to the bar at least.

What are the women like?

I was a little disappointed… but only because I was told that Dubai hosts some of the most beautiful women in all the world. While there are supermodels, celebs, billionaire’s girlfriends and other high-flyer’s about, they are few and far between. Dubai is mostly filled with average looking working ants. The Filipinas here are actually worse than what you’ll find in Manila.

You can also meet many Europeans, Africans and FSU (former Soviet Union) girls in the more “normal” bars, but the quality isn’t great. IMO, the African contingent ranked highest in terms of average standard.

Dubai Mall

That said, the best of Dubai is the beautiful Khaliji girls around. (Khaliji means ‘of the gulf’ by the way, a collective term for those from  Saudi, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait and Qatar). A lot of these girls come to let loose from their more conservative countries. You will find these in malls and high end nightclubs. And when I say high end, I mean book a table, suit up, and drop a stack of cash kind of places. If you want quality Arab girls, big baller game is required in Dubai. Don’t be fooled by the hijab, these girls more materialistic than most Western women! Even then, they are f**king hard to get with.  You need solid skills and a bit of luck, too. I recommend romantic-rockstar-currently-converting-to-Islam game. Khaliji chicks are a paradox, they love a fairytale… but they take it up the ass, too. Remember that. They may be the hardest girls in the world to game, but they still have vaginas. Find the 10% that are non-virgins and you’re set.

Many guys online complain about the painful sex ratio in the city (2.73 men to every one female!), but in reality, most of the guys are South Asian economic migrants who are there to make money, so you don’t see them at night. Dubai is fair game if you got game.

Where should I go at night-time?

The ATM—because partying in Dubai will cost you a small fortune. The cheapest beer will still set you back $8-$10. Stock up at the duty free and pre-drink if you’re on a budget.

The Irish Village

Anyway, where to go? That is the question. You basically have three types of places. The first is “normal” bars/clubs, like the Irish Village and Rock Bottom – both of which I’d recommend. They have live music and moderately priced drink. The Irish Village is  consistently busy, while Rock Bottom’s is a weekend hit. (After 11pm it supposedly gets a few air hostesses in as well… but we left too early).

The next is the freelancer bars, which are usually filled with hookers, each bar specializing in a nationality. They are fun for about 20 mintues, but they get annoying. It’s difficult to shore here as the girls are hardcore. Public displays of affection are often not permitted  Plus, these clubs usually have entrance fees and beers are $12 up. Not cool. Ratskys in the biggest Filipina club and worth a glance for the experience.

The final type of place is the high-end nightclubs, which attracts all the high-rollers, hotties, air hostesses, and moneyed Khaliji girls. Expect to pay a hefty entrance fee if you’re a man, and then go to bar and pay up to $20 for a bottle of Heineken. Armani typifies this kinda of place, but I’ve heard it’s very pretentious.

Try somewhere else. Some local Khaliji girls recommended Mahiki and Crystal. (Especially the former).

Any other recommendations?

The only thing more amazing than the architecture is the shopping malls, which are unrivaled in size. You could spend days in these commercial wonderlands. And with little if no historical sites, and the sweltering heat outside, the likes of Dubai Mall is actually your best bet for a fun day out—with aquiriams, ink rinks, cinemas and food courts that would make you want to move in.

Bottom Line

Pity about the price of booze. Otherwise, this would be one of the world’s slickest cities.

    Holy shit. I was in Dubai for Christmas in 1997 and partied with an Irish friend at the Irish Village.

    Good times.

    How many Khaliji girls did you personally talk to aside from the omani lay? did you proceed to make out with any of them?

    the “good” girls are kept under tight curfews and don’t even go near bars and nightclubs, they have a fairly closed-off social circle. the ones that you’ll run into in such places will probably be relatively liberal. if she says she already has a boyfriend, chances are she’s non-virgin

    WTF are all those Philippinoes and Indians doing there!?

    I always knew Dubai was a melting pot of expats, but thought they were Arab girls. I’m not attracted to S.E. Asian girls at all.

    Anyway, sounds good though. Dubai has always been on my radar.

    I once necked off with a Jordanian chick in the Irish village, she was married as well, one of the security guys clipped me round the ear whilst we were at it. Could have been worse though!

    I live in Dubai. Barasti is the one of the better places to pick up IMO

    Rattle Snake is the place to go if you want working girls.

    Folks, here’s a short update on the “scene” which only really applies if you’re a cheapskate like me!

    Dubai – stay in the Bur Dubai area of town, on Mankhool Road. You’ve got the York hotel, utterly notorious both upstairs and down, girls from Africa, Eastern Europe, China. The Seaview hotel – Africans and Filipinas, also a very good band doing the classic rock numbers. TGIT at the Astoria hotel, quite fun, lots of Chinese, Africans don’t seem to be welcome anymore. The Jockey Club of the Panorama hotel is also worth a look – girls from the ‘Stans, China, Africa, Vietnam…

    Abu Dhabi – doesn’t have Dubai’s reputation, but still quite lively. Visit the Ally Pally at the Al Ain palace hotel, a rather quiet pub wi lots of girls at night – the usual choice of Chinese or African. The Howard Johnson hotel has the appalling Cellar bar but more fun can be had (late) at the African club on the 1st floor. The Dana hotel – The Trap pub is interesting, at more or less any hour after lunchtime, mainly weekends. Also upstairs at the 49ers -rather crowded but you can find some great girls.

    I referred to cheapskates earlier – African and Chinese will usually accept 300 AED for a short time, 600-700 all night in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Sounds a lot, but women from elsewhere seem to ask for a lot more.

      Yo Cicada, do the working girls have their own rooms in the york hotel for me to check that out, or do i gotta pay for the room plus her service, cause to be honest we in the same boat, i aint tryin to be paying more then 500 for a night girl.

      Let me know how the process works out, i plan on hitting the york very soon, but im new here in dubai.

      Do you have any nice Africa girl contact that i can hang out with all night long?

    Actually one of the best way to pick up some girls in this city is the most nerd one: online dating. Maybe because the expat community is made of a lot of young and lonely people, maybe because the hot summer weather let people to spend more boring time at home.
    But for sure, starting from an online dating website it is easy to find someone to share good time 🙂

    HA HA HA
    This Iranian boy is a layer
    Arab gulf khalif girls are rich and they have their own boyfriends
    those in Abayas covering are Iranian poor prostitutes that are cheaper than others and would accept anything even assfucking in mostly included in the deal …. most are HIV positive sent by Iran government to trap Saudi youth into AIDS as part of their cold war
    so be careful !!!!

    • koseomek December 10, 2014 at 12:49 pm #

      But have fucked many khaliji girls from uae and saudi … they all take it up their ass. They say their husbands fuck them anally mainly so they enjoy it now.
      Arabs are the first prostitute in the history and also their men are mainly gays.

      • sari December 23, 2014 at 5:56 pm #

        Ha Ha Ha
        well , it is easy … look how many videos are posted on line for Iranian women and men taking it up the ass compared to very very few arab girls

      • Nomoe May 19, 2015 at 8:14 am #

        So you slept with married Arab women there wouldn’t their husbands want to know where there at?

    Could anyone give more advice about FSU girls In Dubai? Ive heard many are prostitutes, but the ones who not, how about them??

  14. splooge March 9, 2016 at 1:05 am #

    Not Surprised that they are more money hungry and hypergamous then western women. Its like that in other traditional nations like india.

    Money talks big time, since they are from a wealthy circle theyll really dmand that level

    to take a point from Chris Rock, men cant go back sexually, women cant go back down in lifestyle.
    Once they like something thats the minimum.

    Think its the arrange marriage culture that drills this in on listing assets and such like a resume. MOre logical then emotional, where a western girl will chase you and love you if you have nothing

    expensive place to go but lots of fun can definitely be had
