I used to go to Dubai practically every month when I lived in the Middle East. I'd move there in a heartbeat if it wasn't so damn expensive.

I wouldn't even visit until they change the LGBTQ+ laws.. Can't imagine living in a country where the State decides who you can have sex with.

There are tons of places where you can ski indoors these days. UAE might be one of the only places in the desert, but certainly not one of the only in the world.

One of the only places you can do this in doors, what?? I thought it was a very common thing, or maybe you mean in the UAE? Now I am confused..

Edit ah I see I am not the only one..

In the Netherlands alone we have atleast half a dozen big indoor skicentres with real snow (Snowworld being the major name, and I believe the one in Landgraaf is the biggest in the world)

Maybe even more, ANWB, which is the national authority on travel and tourism (makes the roadsigns aswell, among other things) lists a total of 75+ places where you can ski*, most of which I assume atleast partly to be indoors, since we aren't known for our fabulous weather. A quarter actually has "indoor" in their name (and those aren't the aforementioned big ones, so that allready takes you over 30). There is a good chance they are not with real snow, but the question in the question does not mention that. they are all listed as places to ski or learn how to. *Link skicentres) Either way, Dubai isn''t the only place you can ski indoors by a loooong way.

Plenty of Indians are born in the UAE as well. 90% of the students in my class are UAE-born.
