1. Acrophobia
You lose your fear of heights really, really quickly, especially since almost all of the best restaurants in the city are found on rooftops and almost everybody including yourself lives in a 14 storey apartment building. Ohw, and let's not forget, Dubai is home to the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa... so, a trip up there will help you conquer your fear too – all you to do is well, gather the courage to step into the elevator.

2. Claustrophobia
The Dubai Metro and The Dubai Mall do a great job of smacking the fear of confined spaces right out of you.

4. Scelerophobia

Five words – The Dubai Mall on weekends. Once you’ve done that, you will never – we repeat never – be afraid of crowds ever again.

7. Technophobia
Considered one of the world’s leading technological innovators, Dubai’s many neat projects including its Mars mission, soon to be driverless taxis and flying cars, will rid you of your fear of technology pretty quickly.
