We be travelling to Dubai soon. And would like to ask if the racism in Dubai serious? As we are chinese. Are there any cases of racism against chinese?
Dubai is a multicultural multi racial society.
You won't suffer from it, thousands of different nationalitys visit every day
not at all, 70 percent of the population in dubai are foreigners, probably more. There is no racism here and the country law condemns racism very seriously
Hi there is no racism per session but the treatment you get differs depending on nationality. People won't say anything to you but might make you wait or ignore you giving preferential treatment to others.
Other than that there is no racism issue at all... So you just ignore that and move on.
It's a multicultural city and there is a good Chinese population here as well.
So welcome to Dubai and enjoy your time here.
You will be fine. Enjoy.
You will be absolutely fine. I never experienced any racism in Dubai when I was there & I'm Afro Caribbean. Go ahead & enjoy!!
as fellow TA members said you will be fine nothing to worry about, there is no racism or discrimination in UAE and i strongly disagree with what Sandeep has mentioned, am an expat living in uae for decade's and i never heard or had such experience in anywhere.

You will not experience any direct racism as such , there is a large Chinese population in Dubai and Dubai is very multicultural. It's very unique in that it's predominantly made up of expats so people of all races and nationalities live and work amongst each other .
I do agree with Sandeep however in that there are certain racist undertones in Dubai but it's not common or anything to get concerned about and oddly enough it's often people of the same nationality who are acting this way. I've noticed this particularly in bars and hotels certain nationalities seem to get preferential treatment.
you will be fine enjoy. Your more likely to suffer racism in the UK than Dubai.
