I rate it 10/10 for simply what it is now and especially what it will be in 5-10 years. Dubai looks awesome!

Dubai is an amazingly well planned and clean city with a very spectacular skyline.I really like it.

10/10
Dubai is the first city I gave a 10, I didn't even give Kuala Lumpur my home city a 10 but a 9.5. Dubai better be good when I go there.

5.5/10

1. All style, no substance
2. No interaction at all with anything. Not the environment, not the culture, not the street. Nothing.
3. Best summed imnsho as the world's Las Vegas of skylines. Artificial and soon to be very outdated.

A few buildings are wonderful. I would give them perfect scores. But the skyline itself is very discouraging and disappointing.

Dubai I give you a 10 for all your amazing projects, your skyline changing everyday, and because you're the fastest growing city in the World.

Just realized I've never voted Dubai in ROS. 10/10 without even thinking.
