Don’t Carry Fish on the Metro – A Funny Sign

The sign says it all, so when in Dubai – Don’t Carry Fish on the Metro. I laughed when I saw this funny sign. I hope you do too.

Do you think it would be ok to take fish on the metro if it were in a paper bag?  What about a fish in a zip lock bag? A cooler?  I wonder what the fine would be if the fish were filleted and cooked up?

So, if you want to stay out of trouble with the Dubai Police, here are a few extra travel tips for  Dubai:

  • Dress respectfully.
  • Don’t carry fish on the metro.

  • Don’t bring a laser pointer into the country (hubby still doesn’t really want to talk about this one).

      Do you really have signs that say “Beware of pickpockets” or are you just suggesting that there should be those signs?

      I guess if everyone brought their fish, or worse if people left them on the trains it would be a real stinky problem.

    Well isn’t that strange! They must have had trouble with people carrying fish if they had to make a sign saying it was against the law lol.

    Happy WW!

    Gotta admit that I’ve never thought about carrying a fish on any public transport! How about a fish bowl?? You are one brave lady to travel the world with teens and a tween…but geez, I’ll bet it is the trip of a lifetime! Have fun and Happy WW!

      Traveling with my family was amazing. Lucky for us we didn’t bring our fish, so we avoided this issue whilst in the middle east.

    • Rhonda Albom says

      It might apply to some of the neighboring Emirates, maybe you should just leave your fish at home if traveling to the middle east.

      I am thinking the laser pointer deserves its own post. When we are back from Wellington, I think I will get to it.

    • Rhonda Albom says

      Poor kitties. I guess you will have to walk, or take a bus. Just not the train if it is fish day. And as for laser pointers, lets just say don’t try and bring one into the country.

      If I wasn’t so tired I am sure I could have come up with some silly rhyme. I could see this as the cover to a Dr. Seuss book also, although they probably would ban it in the middle east.
