Dubai is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the capital of the Emirate of Dubai, the most populated of the country's seven emirates. Dubai has been called the "shopping capital of the Middle East".Dubai alone has more than 70 shopping centres, including the world's second largest shopping centre, The Dubai Mall. Dubai is known for its nightlife. Clubs and bars are found mostly in hotels because of liquor laws.

Modern Dubai is one of the main centres of prostitution in the UAE and is dubbed "Sodom-sur-Mer". Prostitutes frequent the bars and nightclubs in the hotels. Many prostitutes from poorer countries, such as Nigeria, come to work in Dubai for a short while and then return home with their earnings.

Prostitution, although prohibited, is prevalent and easily accessible in Dubai. Women engaged in this business operate in brothels or massage establishments situated in the city's red-light areas. Typically, red-light districts are located in the city's more established areas, such as Deira and Bur Dubai.

There are also brothels in Dubai. The Cyclone, near the airport was closed down in 2007 after it was featured in Vanity Fair magazine, but the operation simply set up at another location. Known by visitors as the "United Nations of prostitution", the club has as many as 500 prostitutes on the premises on an average night, many from China, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Taiwan.
