Ris­ing park­ing charges in Dubai are just a form of tax

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

“It’s not called ‘tax’, its just a ‘fee’! Didn’t you get the memo??”


“This, this, this! Hid­den taxes ev­ery­where, hid­den costs ev­ery­where and hikes to ev­ery­thing. Ex­o­dus will be­gin shortly un­less ex­pats start to get some­thing back.”


“Un­for­tu­nately I doubt the UAE will ever re­turn to the days be­fore the eco­nomic crash. It’s ob­vi­ous that the ‘old Dubai’ is on it’s last legs. Rents are too high, cost of liv­ing is too high, salaries are stag­nant, taxes are com­ing. The UAE won’t sink into the sea and be gone for­ever but I think the UAE’s best days are be­hind it, and all the changes are signs that all is not well in par­adise.
