Spiritual Activities and Places of Worship

The UAE is a Muslim or Islamic country but it is accepted that people of other religions live here and wish to practice their faith. The goverment/rulers of Dubai have donated land for churches and other places of worship to be built on. Proselytising is not tolerated, atheism is frowned upon, apostasy is apparently punishable by death (although it's unknown for this to have been actually carried out), and if you're Jewish it's better not to admit to that.

Sports and Fitness Centers
Sports and Sports Clubs

The UAE government runs sports clubs ranging from chess to football but membership is restricted to UAE nationals only. Some embassies have their own cultural clubs offering sports with membership open to nationals of that country. Otherwise, private sports clubs are an option, but cost money. A residence visa is not usually needed to join a private sports club but check anyway.
