      @nitin: it was so much fun till now... i was enjoying this conversation... Come to think of it, what if someone from the administration reads this and thinks it is a good idea... :)

    Are tourists to be charged for taking photographs of Dubai landmarks?

    DUBAI: Citing the need for increased revenues and protection from brand erosion, Dubai tourism officials have announced that they will begin charging for visitors to take photographs of many of the city’s iconic landmarks.

    Dubai Flashbacks, which is due to come into effect October 1, will see sentries posted at many sights and given authority to approach tourists and demand payment if they see them using their cameras.


    Is this for real?

      Ok, apparently it's satire. But it had me going for a minute.
