Quite a number of people in the far eastern countries too are familiar with dubai. It is only europe and the americas and australia that people are not familiar with dubai. How much % of the world population is that? I guess it is a little higher than 25%. The whole western world and the latin american countries make up just 1/4th the worlds population. How is that as food for thought?

actually your nearly right, yet most of Europe know of dubai well, it seems that some of the more inbred states of america havent heard of it.. them and thunderhead, possibly 95% of the world HAVE heard of dubai, the rest are just a bit thick.

only because they try to out do every other city in building things. take That jebel ali airport thing for example - bloody hell 6 runways theres not that much traffic c'mon seriosly. seriously, dubai is only buildings - around it is hundreds of miles of featureless desert.

have you been here? I assume not as ytou wouldent be talking out your arse. Go to the Dubai forum, look under Jebal Ali Airport city and see the context of the airport. It will be next to the largest man made port in the world, next to the largest redistribution trade hub in the world, has vechicular access to Saudi, Qatar, Bharian , Oman etc and is a tax free zone. You will find DHL,TNT, FED-Ex along with Mersck Shipping , Evergreen etc setting up re-distribution hubs to serve the region and the world.
Not Busy, mate you havemt been to Dubai Airport at 1 in the morinng with 5000 people in the arrival halls. binkers off , stop speaking out your arse and actaully do some reseacrch before sounding off your uneducated , ignorant posts

i don't know why we have never made people notice about oman
it borders the uae and in just a few hours you're in muscat, the capital
if you look for real heritage, this is the place to go!

been there a couple of times but only for a few days
i was deeply impressed

an ass-whopping country which is against mass tourism, but in fact is a beauty
dubai development companies push things forward a little, but it's an untouched paradise

so lovely and zillions things to do
it might be similar to israel, so many climate zones in one country

landscape rocks!
