Pronounciation[edit]

The pronounciation part in the first sentence says "doo-BY". I think it should be changed to "doo-BYE" because with the current one people may pronounce it as "doobie". I tried changing it but it just changed back automatically. Aitch & Aitch Aitch (talk) 18:01, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

I notice there is only one pronunciation listed on this article but I hear the first letter pronounced as a J sound a lot more than a D sound. I imagine that a D sound is a lot more common in North America, but the J sound is a very common, if not the most common pronunciation in the British Isles, Australia and New Zealand and I believe it should be listed.

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/dubai lists the pronunciation as /d(j)uːˈbʌɪ/ Bobbbcat (talk) 07:32, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 18 May 2018[edit]

Please change the description of the Picture "Typical Bastakiya street in Deira" - to "Typical Bastakiya street in Bur Dubai" as Bastakiya is in Bur Dubai.

[[File:Typical Bastakiya buildings - panoramio.jpg|thumb|Typical Bastakiya street in [[Deira, Dubai|Deira]]]] should be: [[File:Typical Bastakiya buildings - panoramio.jpg|thumb|Typical Bastakiya street in [[Bur Duabi|Bur Dubai]]]]

Proof: Meta-Tags of the Image https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Typical_Bastakiya_buildings_-_panoramio.jpg show that is was taken in Bur Dubai. Shine (talk) 19:12, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: The location data is not consistent. One metatag gives a set of coordinates that Google Maps locates in Bur Dubai and the other says and another gives a set of coordinates that Google Maps locates in Al Souq Al Kabeer, since the original file is no longer available, the location given in teh original description will have to suffice for now.
