    The ribbon of beach nestled along the towering skyscrapers rising from Dubai's man-made marina district is a rare spot in the Middle East, bringing together the conservatively dressed and the bikini-clad in a multiethnic mix of those with means and those still striving for a more comfortable life.

    FWIW, my favorite beaches are a tie between Mamia and Vama Veche, both fantastic beaches on the Romanian coast of the Black Sea.

    I've been there several times and often noticed tourists dressed somewhat inappropriate for the location. While I may not agree with many of the laws and customs there, I think it is proper to respect their rules and regulations. Skimpy tight bathing suits are not appropriate for that part of the world. Dubai is very much dependent on tourism dollars as they do not have the oil revenue of Abu Dhabi, so they often overlook certain attire, but that does not make it right to disrespect their customs.
