Today a local gentlemen took a parking place I had been waiting for. When challenged he asked me what I could do about it - correct nothing - you just have to count to 10 and move on.lane:
Parking, or the lack thereof, is the reason I have virtually ceased going to the Dubai Mall. They demolished parking to build more shops. How could that not be a problem? :noidea:I don't recommend things like tire deflating and parking across their back, they can just call the police and get your car towed.
I experienced something worse, I was waiting for a parking slot when an emarati came and used his horn announcing he wants the place, I saw there was another car moving out so I left the place to the emarati, the 2nd car was faster to get out of the parking so the emarati again wanted the place, I again left it to him and parked in the first slot.
Just don't get worked out about these issues. It will always happen. I saw 2 guys once physically fighting in Dubai Mall parking over a parking slot.
I really have no idea what you are on about. I always go to the same place at any time of day or evening, and get parked within 2 minutes of entering the car park.Parking, or the lack thereof, is the reason I have virtually ceased going to the Dubai Mall.
I think the barriers you are referring to are the ones that create spaces for valets to park cars. You are supposed to pay to valet.As a relative n00b, I tend to go first thing in the morning, have a coffee (outside Ramadan) and wait for the stores to open, get what you want and get home before it gets busy.
Dubai mall was a nightmare last time I went, level after level of empty parking with the barriers down and people queuing up for spaces in the few levels they had open. Some things just don't make sense to me. Why not open the barriers?
I found trying to park in any mall any time after 11am is a nightmare, it's also crazy busy with people wandering about not looking where they are going poking at a phone screen, other peoples' unruly kids running about. As a bloke I'm not the best fan of shopping but Dubai hasn't caught up with internet shopping yet so quite often there is no choice.
ram in to the cars, slash their tires and defend your land!!! :boxing::deadhorse:Oh come on, get a life you lot, grow some balls like Pam has (btw, you won't be able to park in Dubai Mall every day soon), defend your space!
No, defend your place as in, you wait for someone to reverse out, then know how to stop others getting it. It's not done with indicators btw....ram in to the cars, slash their tires and defend your land!!! :boxing::deadhorse:
I will tell you this, in Abu Dhabi I haven't experienced anything like this.
