Dubai Zoo gets strict with dress code
Zoo receives six school buses a day - parents concerned for children
yup, it's great, but please don't limit this only in Dubai, make it all over UAE. We really shy to go shopping malls with our children and families because of some women's dressing style is so vulgar. thanks

It really baffles me that people residing in this country do not adhere to the laws of the country. You do not only show your disrespect for the laws and cultures, you are a bad reflection on all expatriates. It is really not too much to ask to just dress respectfully.

All should respect the law of land. Again this rules should not be limited to Dubai. It should be a common law for UAE. We see nuisance in public places most of the time and also there should be a need for women police patroling to control these kind of nuisance as some time male police are not in a position to inter fear with them also.

Thank you very much, this is what we expected from quite long time. Proper dress code for both men&women's should follow throughout their lives spent in UAE. This law should made applicable for all public places and it should extend to the residents as well. Thank you once again.

Kudos! It is indeed shocking how people (despite knowing it is a Muslim country, and the presence of notices in shopping malls) choose to ignore the culture of the country. What is more inexplicable (other than a complete lack of respect for the country) is that a lot of the people who openly ignore the dress code are not tourists, but residents as well (clearly visible in all shopping malls). Dubai offers a good life to its expatriate population, and respect for its dress code is the least they can do in return for this life. I hope this is an eye opener for other institutions to follow suit.

This rule should be implemented in the UAE every where. Every body is welcome to this beautiful place, but they must respect the Islamic Culture and Society. I have seen last friday some female tourists in Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque wearing very short dress. They should not be allowed to enter in the area of mosque without proper dress.

Reader is concerned that passersby might injure themselves unknowingly.
The King Faisal Street had pedestrian crossings, but they have faded with time.
Reader says that the crossings are at a great distance and so pedestrians are tempted to jaywalk.
How can readers register if they want to request for a bridge?
