Off topic - I wonder if Rammstein will ever play a show in the U.A.E? Make sure you go if they do, I saw them in June they were awesome (and I've seen alot of gigs). Flame throwers, explosions and even a rubber dingy .

On topic - Going back to what Culwulla said about history. Compared to Europe most American cities have very little history, history can be a matter of perspective. But every city has to start somewhere, Dubai is starting now . Although, there are parts of Dubai from it's old fishing and pearl industries.

missy elliott and busta rhymes come to dubai in a few weeks to perform here together
black eyed peas were here lately and it was a big show


if dubai can host these 2 i think rammstein can come here to

to come back to topic
a purpose-built culture and entertainment city in dubai would be nice

i'm sure they plan something like this

most of them,
emporis lists 239 UC at the moment, this is pretty accurate since some of our UAE forumers are editors.

hmm
there are not too many i guess
the 2 you've listed are correct, another one might be fortune tower in jumeirah lake towers, it has a revolvong restaurant on top

at the moment i cannot think of any other tower with an official public observation deck

That photo looks so weird, with only that strip having green with the rest of the city around it a tannish color.
