1. Lays on the floor to take a photo of the Burj Khalifa…
If you get really, really, really low, you can actually get the whole thing in a picture... it just looks a bit a bit strange.

2. Mouths “al'abwab tughliq” along with the Dubai Metro intercom…
We still do, to be honest.

3. Leaves Dubai Mall with nothing but a Starbucks coffee…
Because they just want to visit the 1,200 shops, aquarium and ice rink as a tourist attraction, rather than actually buy anything.

4. Takes at least 10 pictures with every flashy car they see parked outside a hotel…
We can just imagine their reaction when they see what the Dubai Police drive.

5. Gets their feelings hurt when they're addressed as “ma'am/sir”…
Residents get so used to it they barely notice.

6. Gets overwhelmed by the amount of people on the Dubai Metro during rush hour…
If you're going to do your touristy things at rush hour, best get Gold Class.

9. Takes a picture of the temperature reading to show their friends back home just how hot it is…
You’re in the desert in September, Susan, it’s going to be hot. Come back in June and then you might have something to brag about.

10. Wonders why everyone speaks English…
In fact, there's a good chance most people you meet speak about three languages.

You need a lobby picture for your Facebook friends, don't you.

13. Asks for a blanket when they visit the cinema…
Yeah... we still do that.
