Our Verdict
Does Dubai charge more for items in high-street stores than London, New York or Hong Kong? We were surprised to learn that when comparing the price of a basic white T-shirt, in most cases the price gap was marginal, and sometimes Dubai was cheaper. A basic men’s T-shirt at Reiss and American Eagle Outfitters costs more overseas than it does in Dubai. On the flipside, here we pay slightly more for the same item at Zara, Diesel and H&M.
