  1. welcome to Dubai happy you come to visit 😀 i’m saudi but i come to dubai like in every spring/winter break some times on weekends and i didnt know about the vegan food there thanx alot 😀

  2. For one day, I think you did manage to see quite a bit. Just wondering if you had any negative remarks on being out alone as a female, or not covering your heard? One hears all sorts of stories, but is never sure how things really play out.

    1. Hi @SJ Calderon … I didn’t get any remarks, no. I was staying with a couple who are from New Zealand but they’ve lived and worked in the UAE for nearly 9 years so I asked them a bunch of questions while there. Because Dubai is so touristy it’s typically not an issue for a woman to be out alone and to not be fully covered. My hosts did advise – out of respect – to keep shoulders covered and legs should be covered to the knees; unless you’re at the beach. Bikinis welcome there, it seems. To be fully honest, I did feel generally out of sorts and wouldn’t visit more than a day or two at a time. It’s expensive, not easy to get around, and since shopping isn’t really my thing I didn’t have much to do other than wander around the malls.

  6. Very interesting! What about falafel – hummus – tehina dishes in Dubai? You experienced any tastes of them?.. Thank you very much!

    1. I’m sure there were some falafel dishes somewhere in the mall or surrounding areas but I didn’t seek them out this time.

  7. This video was awesome! Im Canadian but I’m visiting my family that live in Dubai in February and now I have some vegan places to try 🙂

    1. That’s so great to hear, Sophia! Kristin covered a ton of ground during her one day in Dubai, and some of our other travelers also visited this incredible city during their travels. If you haven’t already, check out Shae & Marissa’s Dubai video for even more vegan finds:
