Dude, what have you been smoking?
HK's standard of living is far better than that of Dubai. I can't even see why you would make such a comparission.

Sure, Dubai maybe a nicer place if you're a 75 year old German lady with a lot of money, a big passion for tacky expensive hotels and skin that needs to be tanned.

Dubai's success is heavily attributed to the migrants from many other countries that slave their hours under not-so-good conditions. The disparity is quite large. They don't seem to be enjoying the economic boom too proportionately.

Nevertheless, I have yet to see a quality of life survey whereby Dubai is above Hong Kong. I'm not surprised since they are at another stage of development. They're catching up rapidly, and the gap is likely to narrow in the coming years.

"Beauty" can be very subjective.
In my subjective opinion, that's HK without doubt.

HK is very striking at night especially with the Symphony of Lights. In the day, it's ok except the skyline is breathtaking when viewing it from the peaks.

It would be cool to see Baghdad with a nice skyline. Maybe it might become the centre of the Middle East

The financial centre of the Middle East is most likely a battle with Dubai in it these days, although Abu Dhabi, Qatar, and Bahrain all want a piece of the pie as well.
