simply awesome :)
Friday is a "strange" day in Dubai: according to my experience the metro will not run in the morning untill shortly after lunchtime, due to the fact that friday is the "sunday" for moslems.
Most of the shops will be closed as well and so maybe the nightlife will be affected as well every friday ?!
Globetrott ... Friday the party starts at 4 pm at the beach ;)
Nothing affected by anything in Dubai ... people do what ever they like ... you want to pray u go to the mosque you wanna do something else also its available .. dubai is open for everyone
well Patchi, but I think that some people also expect some normal life BEFORE 04.00pm and Dubai was the very first city that I came to where the metro does not go untill lunchtime for religious reasons once a week and I think that is such a strange fact that tourists should know that in advance !
lol as i said before if you want to pray you can go and pray and if you want to party you can hit the beach and party ... about the metro thing i'm not sure about the info but here in dubai nothing stop during the praying on friday .. so probably it was some issues with the metro when u were here ..
Well, Patchi, are you sure that you live in Dubai ? Maybe you should take the Metro more often or at least read here:
About the trains
What are the train running times?
Train run from 6am to 11pm, Saturday to Thursday and from 2pm to midnight on Fridays

for tourists who are not aware of this it is a very big problem, no matter wether they want to pray or not !
I live in La La Land ;)
