Well at least you're still in an amazing city. Having some time alone could be worth it. It still blows that they would do that without telling you. Sorry, OP.
My sister moved to Dubai 7 months ago and always goes out alone. Just because it's an Arab country doesn't automatically make it hostile to women. I understand where you are coming from though. Traveling anywhere alone has dangers--especially, unfortunately, for females. I just wanted to clear some misconceptions anyone may have. This is not an attack targeted towards this commenter.
Dubai is amazing. It's a shame that you may not get to see a lot of it. Hopefully they'll decide to go to something soon.
In many arab cultures and Muslim some parts of France belive it or not a woman traveling alone may not only be raped but then basically get in trouble for basically instigating a rape. so no she can't really go out without a family member taking her! how do people not know this!?!
You should go out anyway since they are being jerks. If they say anything against it, tell them their actions will not ruin your fun.
