I can't imagine that Dubai will be attractive for so many people to plan their vacation their! LEt's see...

What I noticed is, that the Honkong Skyline is mostly shown on new years eve!
Does it need light and fireworks to be beautiful?
Dubai no history? Is this somekind of a joke?

I wouldn't know because I don't pay too much attention to these cities. But I'll be visiting Boston when I fly to The East Coast next month.

Strange that you would pay attention to Nashville, but not Miami or Boston?

Cause I saw a thread on SSC about a 1000 ft scrapers being planned for Nashville and it surprised me. I would never expect a supertall for this city.

Dubai-today is planned on a drawing table, it has nothing to do with Dubai-City in the last centuries, as you can see with projects like "palm, marina" and the whole infrastructure! Comletely new, just for tourism.

You do realize the name of the website,yes?
Yes I know the same of the site.
We have skyscrapers, I said it's not always QUANTITY that matter.
And this is my opinion, I never said for you to accept it!
Here are some pics for discussion:

And I agree with the others about Dubai, it is a very heartless city. It is not even a city, it is a Disneyland.

that's a normal knowledge: shanghai has more highrises than NYC, not hear or read from one source, and not only chinese media.
