    yes....yes it is

    absolutely awesome
    if you like the sun, are outgoing and like to try out new experiences - youll need 2 weeks atleast

    oh and some dosh :-D

    yeah my daughter thinks its so amazing!

    Would be cool to see unique attractions such as the Burj Kalifa (Tallest building in the world)

    I you like spending money yes. The place is a bit artificial though.

    10 years or less & all the oil will be gone, then what ? bye bye Dubai,perhaps.

    well...no.

    the whole purpose of building what theyre doing is to make money from tourism

    this is why theyre gonna make all the wonders of the world - in dubai.

    but from everything theyve got built and offer so far, and not being in debt to anyone - they dont need oil?

    I HAVE BEEN..ONCE ABOUT 15YRS AGO, AND THEN THE SECOND VISIT WAS A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO(oops- ignore caps) 15yrs ago, i loved it- it was all desert type area and a lot of culture, loads of friendly locals- and the main get togethers/ evening outs were spent in their lovely local parks..

    a couple of years ago when i visited, i hated it. it's superficial, over developed, shopping malls everywhere you look, lack of culture, crammed full of tourists with the same shops you get here in London.. it isn't much cheaper either despite vising during the 'shopping festival'..

    me no like. i don't wanna go back.

    no interest whatsoever to visit or live there, thank you!

    Dubai has no oil of its own.....
    You are confusing it with the emirate of Abu-Dhabi.
    Dubai's economy is purely based on trade and tourism.

    That was Abu-Dhabi....... Dubai's neighbour. Ruled by a different family. Also it wasnt an Afghan. It was a Lebanese-American business man

    repped for correction

    I lived in Dubai for a bit when I was young as my Dad had a contract fixing planes out there.

    This was well before it became well known, and when much of the place was still dessert. I have some really fond memories of the place, but haven't been back for over 10 years.

    Amazing how fast it was created. A little over 10 years to get from the first picture to the second.

    yea its an amazing place, were going later this year with the whole family really cant wait!!!

    That picture still seems a few years old. Lots changed since then........
    Its missing quite a few important additions to the skyline.
    Most importantly its missing the metro rail tracks along the sides.
    Dubai's built a very modern mono/underground rail network in a record time of 3.5 years.

    I've got a site trip to abu dhabi in the next month or so, Ive never been either sooo looking forward too it.
