Foreigner’s cultural mistakes in UAE

  • Beach clothes are very exposing
  • Some teachers never read emails only after few days
  • When we communicate with some teachers they either look away or be busy and listen at the same time ,which is considered rude  reckless
  • Pointing at people with their foot

Emiratis cultural misunderstanding when they travel

  • Interrupting a meeting and ask to talk for few mints
  • Different ways to say hi can be easily mistaken ( hand shake, cheek kiss, bow)
  • Asking a lot of personal questions
  • Handing money to someone directly , can some time be an indication of bad luck
