Today is terrible. You can't see anything. I almost had an accident today because of a crazy truck driver.

I hate sandstorms...

There is no law stopping people from checking previous pages, especially when the forum itself directs you on the last page of the thread you did visit.

Your biggest worry shouldn't be the weather - it should be whether or not EMAAR actually manage to open the outside terrace -

Is Dubai safe? Especially at night? Is there really any bad parts? I would love to visit, but only if it is safe and well protected.

Probably the safest place you will find in the world. Day and night, it is a pleasure to take walks.
