Get a life lad! The kids are also on drugs!

You really don't know what you're talking about and for the record most Australians dont see it as a cheap destination. Tell that to the many who choose to stay at the Versace Resort!

The young, drunk and rowdy young people is a function of the end of year school parties and it's become and institution.

LOL at gambling, you can gamble anywhere in Australia, even the local pub, casinos and gaming houses are not confined to the Gold Coast.

The beaches are beautiful and there is plenty to do for anyone and everyone. Many beaches, large themeparks, the waterways and natural gold coast hinterland are just a few highlights.

The only reason the beach is so nice is because of tourist oriented development. This time last century the Nerang River mouth was nowhere near The Spit, the water was brackish and swampy and beaches were prone to heavy constant erosion. Building towers = more impetus to keep the sand from buggering off due to the tide and weather a la 1967-style.

There is a serious disregard for the respect of ideas in many forums here. It never ceases to amaze me.

With regards to the skyline, I can't help but comment on the fact that it is nothing more than a new Dubai, sans the choking sand - or even a denser version of Miami, with designer condos and concrete paradises constituting a new "destination" skyline. While it might look nice from a distance (that tall is actually a wonderful ornament on the skyline), I can't help but wonder about the actual culture these lavishly appointed hoteliminiums constitute.

The Q1 is beautiful! However, there's no centre point to focus your eyes on. Understandably for what it is, all the buildings follow the beachfront but on a rating for a skyline, it doesn't look very good. Kinda chaotic and just looks like a row of condos and apartments. The Q1 is the saving grace.

I absolutely despise that superficial paradise appearance. Miami ... Las Vegas ... Gold Coast ... Dubai. All of these cities just look so superficial to me. I really am looking for urban substance. An easy alternative to Miami is Tampa ... for example.

Call me a Midwestern bumpkin, but that's just my opinion. I prefer grit and urban substance over superficial looks.

Actually, you are not wrong. Nor is it a bumpkin opinion. Each of the cities you have mentioned lack the essential depth, diversity and substance of true cities. Dubai is becoming a skyscraper Disneyland, and culturally, the Gold Coast is about as one dimensional and barren.
