Why is Georgia the ultimate bachelor party destination for Dubai residents
Almost 8.5 million expats call the UAE their home in 2021. Many of them eventually plan to settle and get married.
To celebrate this happy occasion, the groom’s buddy or brother normally plans the stag night, with the help of a bachelor party planners. A bachelor party (in the United States and Canada), also known as a stag weekend, stag do, or stag party (in the United Kingdom, Commonwealth nations, and Ireland), or a buck’s night (in Australia), is a party hosted or organized by the man who is about to marry.
In this article we shed light on what the laws in the UAE state and why Georgia is the destination for you to throw your bachelor party.
Party laws of the UAE
The United Arab Emirates is a Muslim country with regulations that are ultra conservative. If any of your mates disobey the rules, they will be arrested and imprisoned. Most likely for a period of time long enough for them to miss their journey home.
What is the definition of stepping out of line? Consumption of alcoholic beverages outside of a licensed establishment. Intoxication in public. Displays of affection in public. Using obscene language. Any anti-UAE sentiments made on social media or in person, including insulting the UAE laws.
Although it may sound like Big Brother, you never know who is watching or listening. The UAE does not recognize the freedoms and civil liberties that we take for granted in other parts of the world which are more liberal.
Bachelor party in Georgia for Dubai residents
Unlike the UAE; the Georgian laws are pretty relaxed. Gay bars, gambling, and strip joints are all prohibited! As a result, anyone is free to be whoever they wish. Marijuana has been legal in Georgia since 2018, believe it or not.
Please note, however, that we do not recommend excessive displays of affection or depravity in public areas. Despite the outlawing of such acts, the ultra-conservative Orthodox Church continues to exert a considerable influence in Georgia. So, to cut a long story short, have fun, but don’t be too blatant about it.
Moreover; Georgia is just a 3 hours flight away from most GCC countries, relatively cheap and visa free for most residents; making it super convenient to host your bachelor party here.
Final thoughts on Georgia being the ultimate destination for your bachelor party
Georgia is the first former Soviet Union country to liberalize its borders. It’s packed with Soviet artefacts such as obsolete weaponry and trucks. Even the country’s architecture bears traces of the Soviet Union.
As a result, this location may provide some unforgettable and fairly unusual ways to have fun – whether it’s driving a cool old tank, shooting some authentic WWII guns, or even playing a scavenger hunt in the ancient manufacturing building and even staying there!
