As long as you completely comply with our (religious) laws, you are safe. You don't want to end up in jail here!

Dubai Is Very Safe and has Very tight security. There are very low crimes and It is very affordable for living alone or with family. The law is very strict and There are many places to visit. It also has many sites to Take pictures of. It has Churches, Mosques, Temples, and Other religious places. Try going on Dubai safari or Dubai frame. It will be The Best ride of your life!

Thought Id add some positivity to the other posts here. Dubai is a great city that thrives on the principle of rewarding the good citizens and penalising the bad ones. Its safer than most cities I've been to. You can earn relatively well. It is tougher when you are single I might say considering your lifestyle but then I know some people having a ball at the same time.I am an expat and have been here long enough to see this city grow and change.I have worked hard when I was younger and have progressed with the city.
Yes we do have accidents sometimes because we have some of the best roads in the world and allow people from all over the world with varied driving skills to drive so you are bound to have issues.
You are watched discreetly but then thats how it stays safe.
Yes freedom of speech is controlled but then you always know you are here to do better and then leave. Their business is none of yours
Its in the desert! Its going to be hot. But then there are super comfortable ac systems everywhere

I have to praise them for achieving what they have with what they were given.I like this city. Its not perfect but neither am |I :)
