Whereas that unethical in the UAE. There will be some culture difference such as the dressing; Emiratis are always wearing the sheila and abaya whereas Australia’s culture doesn’t include that. In addition to the food, Western countries are allowing the not halal food such as dishes that includes some alcohol or the pig meat. Moreover, the behavior, western people are allowing hugs in public
