Dubai was a real eye opener for me after living so long in Thailand – as the countries were poles apart on just about every level and front! I really warmed to Dubai for its service culture and just different style to what I become accustomed to in Thailand. It reminded me of why traveling and experiencing new countries can be so much fun.
If you have a Thai partner they do not require a visa to the country and will get 30 days on entry. You will find Dubai very clean and well worth a one week vacation.
