Hi warren

Hello Warren,

I see that you are the Administrator of this site.

I was writing to introduce myself and say hello. I am going to be visiting Dubai for the first time in January and wanted to get some recommendations about which places will be good to visit (e.g., restaurants, shopping, etc.)

I have a tour guidebook but there is nothing like getting information from a person that actually lives in Dubai.

Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello sanward, welcome to the Forums.
I am one of the administrators of the site, and sorry, but I don't live in Dubai.
You may have better luck posting your question in the Travel Forum Dubai thread.

Early 40's. Sheikh Ahmed was once engaged to her when she was in her 20's and then broke it off (dont know who did and why).

I have read somewhere that sheikh mo has I think two daughters named latifa and three named mariam but all with different wives. Is that true? Does he really have that many latifas and mariams?

Just a quick question, do you guys think Sheikh Rashid will ever take a serious role in government like his brothers in the near future? I know he's involved in sports and the Olympic committee, but nothing of the sort that amounts to his brothers' positions.

Here you can find some information about the children of Sheikh Mohammed.

I've never heard anything about Sheikh Rashids future plans, maybe someone else knows more about that and can give you a better answer.

Sheikh Mohammed has 2 Mariams and 2 Latifas.
A Mariam and a Latifa from Sheikha Hind and a Mariam who is from a Lebenese lady (some say she is Sheikha Manal's sister but nothing really ever confirmed that). I dont know from which mother the other Latifa is from but she is older than Sheikha Hinds daughter.

About Rashed, I personally dont see him taking up any govt position and nothing high like his brother. I think the next positions will be among the younger brothers. Sheikh rashed is hardly seen at events, meetings and official stuff.

She never married, Sheikh Ahmed is her first husband and no children from him yet.

1. Im not a 100% sure but I would assume they knew abit if not fluent. Back in the days, all nannies, drivers (till now) workers were Indians. That generation did know the language. It was like English these days.

2. I dont know but all local channels in the UAE did play bollywood movies once a week.

I havent heard anything like that. Even if it was true, there is no prove to back it up which will end up being speculations which is against the forum rules

Sheikh Mohamed has two daughetrs named Mariam and two others named Latifa as said dazzling. Latifa2 and Mariam2 are daughters of his official wife Sheikha Hind, Mariam1's mother is a moroccan lady as far as I know and finally Latifa1 is the full sister of Sheikh Mayed, Maitha and Shamsa and their mother is moroccan too.

because nobody proppsed earlier to Hessa.
I think all over the world that the younger can/does marry before the older sister, and again its because Sheikha was engaged and they planned to marry where Maryam is not engaged.

Haha Rashid is incognito for random personal reasons. All he does is be his own person... I think even Yousif Al Mulla is tired of taking pictures of him playing football... (Soccer in America lol).
