the change is amazing though and the planning of this city is crazy

Couldn't have said it any better.

the skyline is great but i don't like where it's located, it's an special city because it's in the dessert but i,like more the cities with lots of trees so i give it 8/10.

Hmm. Not bad, but some buildings look dog ugly.

The glass on the buildings on the other side of the road to Dubai marina make the JBR look less bland and dark ! which is a good thing =)

Comparing the state Dubai is in now and what it will hopefully become 10 years from now i will have to give it a 5/10 now =P and a full 10/10 in the future

I agree 100 %! but had to give it 3 or less because of the arrogant rude selfish ppl living there...

And yes I have been there, and yes I have seen the crapy cheap looking skyline, and no I dont like it at all... I rather go for a trip to disneyland, even that is alot less fake than Dubai, and alot more fun!

I love the middle east, but honestly do not like Dubai one bit. The city got no charm what so ever.

I think Dubai has AMAZING buildings, but I'm not so sure about the skyline. But I will give it A 10/10 anyway because of all those towers
