From the Paper:"Social custom dictates that handshakes are an important part of greeting someone. In addition the Arab custom believes that one should not address a woman unless one has been properly introduced to that woman. The hotel industry has worked to accommodate both the Arab culture and the western culture within their guests. Offering alcohol to an Arab is considered offensive if one is not positive that the Arab drinks, however, in western civilization offering a drink is considered a mark of politeness. The Dubai hotel industry has had to incorporate ways to offer drinks without offending any guests.
Ramadan is the most revered holiday among Muslims and it is considered extremely offensive to eat, drink or smoke in front a Muslim from sunup to sun down during that time frame. The Dubai hotel industry has devised methods to allow non Muslim guests to partake in food and beverage without offending the Muslim locals and guests. "
