Australians Interested in Dubai’s Great Cultural Divide

The ‘sex on the beach’ case, touching and homosexuality has already been discussed on this web site but it is interesting to see that in Western Australia a report on the divide in Dubai and UAE values is the most viewed article at the moment [27 September 2008).

The interest is fuelled because Aussies are keen observers of what is going on in the Emirates, many of them are tourists or potential tourists to these parts and Australian values and lifestyle on the beaches of the large continent are open, tactile and tolerant.
