You cant compare vegas to Dubai man , thats so wrong. Dubai IS a city while las vegas is a strip of hotels and endless suburbia sprawl !!

Well if you like that picture so much here is a better one

i think the UAE has some distance to go before it can be called a developed country. but it has the potential. it's very much within its reach.

and qatar, kuwait, bahrain and oman can follow.

i just want to ask this - how come saudi arabia had an income of $28,000 in 1980 but "only" around 8-9000 now.

if saudi arabia could hold its position or progress it would be among the first developed nations outside europe, north america or australia.

but now it seems it's not so easy for saudi.

UAE is made of 7 states. The rate of development is not the same. However, i believe UAE is a developed country. Dubai (the largest city) is in direct competition with many large cities of the world. Abu Dhabi is also coming up

The problem with UAE is that the foreigners are far more than the natives.
