Problems/Solutions

Welcome to Dubai! Once you get to Dubai there are many problems to face. Like the Arabic language can be difficult to understand, although some Arabians might be able to help by speaking English. Another problem would be to drive because in Dubai there can be many different laws to driving and you wouldn't know them. The money use in Dubai is also a difficult problem because they don't us U.S dollars like we do because they either use euros or United Arab Emirates Dirham, but with the help of Google you can see how much a euro or a United Arab Emirates Dirham costs. Dubai has many different laws, but as tourists we wouldn't know what they are. If you can search up on www.thatdubaisite.com/thatdubaisite.com/That_Dubai_Site_Dos_and_Donts.html you can see what not to do or what to do.

Conclusion/Reflection

In conclusion Dubai is a very beautiful and luxurious landmark. The sights are very beautiful. Once you get to Dubai there are many of things to do like for example you can go shopping, swimming, or even plain old sight seeing. As soon as you get to Dubai you would think that there is nothing to do, but in reality you honestly would want to come back once you leave, like I do. As You come back home you might see your country a lot differently and use money a lot more wisely like I am right now. No matter how rough it gets in life you can still look back into this trip you took.
