Fire in Dubai

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Might be even more lax now than before.

A buddy told us that we could buy bottles of spirits at those places without a licence for cheaper than the duty free at the airport.

Sounds like Cambodia. I bought my 'duty free' alcohol from drink shops rather than at the airport.

Of course not, it didn't have kilos of semtex attached to the bottom of its columns.... har har har.

I found Dubai sucked the two times I was there. Too much unnecessary opulence. Not much to do either...

Haha, the place probably does suck. Coming from Saudi I look forward to being somewhere as lively as a library.
