Warm countries like UAE have very good ventilation system in place. Structures are built to make it cool inside , and there are proper cooling methods like ceiling fans, ventilators and air-conds

These are very much absent in temperate zones, as builders need to take into account not just Summer, but other seasons as well.

Yeah only if you are rich. I am sure underpaid indian workers in Dubai don't have the ability to afford air conditioning. Having those really high temperatures is really not natural and our bodies are not designed to cope with such heat. Cold is much better

you don't have to be rich to have a small AC :P , besides people have been living in hot desert areas for thousands of years , i doubt they had air conditioning. Not to mention ,If living in Dubai is bad ,then i guess is bad living in the US (florida and the south have similar humidity and temperatures) or southern Spain , Italy , etc). Personally i prefer extreme hot over extreme cold , it's way more acceptable in the coastal desert than siberia

the same underpaid Indian worker would not have air conditioning in his native India also, and would live even worse off money wise

Incorrect. Civilization started in Africa where you have even worse heat. The Egyptians didn't have air conditioning and neither did other great civilizations.

Thanks.

My experience was very good. There were some things I didn't quite like, but none of them was major. For example small or no sidewalks in many parts of the city, I am not used to that. But I understand the reasons for all of them and the "negative" things were also a part of the interesting experience of Dubai.

The only major negative was that I didn't manage to take a picture of some Bugatti Veyron.

The temperatures were quite high, but I like it hot. And air conditioning is really everywhere. Even bus stops have AC.
