Dear all,
Is it allowed to do spotting in Dubai this days? Could you advise best locations around the airport if you been there?
Thanks in advance!

You mean DXB right?  

Jokes aside:

To answer your question (this is going to be hard) if you read this thread from 2006, NO
End Of Dubai Spotting... (by Fly-K Feb 12 2006 in Aviation Photography)

But if you do an DB search there is loads of pictures from DXB: DB%29&page_limit=15&page=1&sid=11ebb87c87c55ea48f4d1edbbde87fa5&sort_order=year+desc&thumbnails=" target="_blank">

So my answer would be, You are damned if you do and you damned if you don't

I finally did some spotting in Dubai and it was great! It wouldn't happen without my new friend, talented photographer and very cool guy Sam Chui. Photos will follow soon.
