Dubai Airport: is it safe for a woman traveling alone?

Jump to last reply

I'm considering booking a trip that would require me to have a 8 hour layover in Dubai. I'm 51 years old and am a relatively independent person. My husband is concerned about whether or not I would be safe there alone. I've read a little bit here in the forums about how it is a very busy airport, etc; Should I be concerned about my personal safety more than in country that has more progressive views about women? (I assure you, I'm not meaning to come off as racist or bigoted; it is a sincere question from someone who has not ever traveled to that part of the world.)

Thank you!
