I don't see a lot of night pics of Dubai...is it because more than half are dark? (unoccupied?) I am still boggled by the massive constructions and don't make sense with high cost of living and current population. Are foreigners buing properties in Dubai as vacation homes or actually living there? Where are the middle and lower income resides? ...out in the desert? as most residentials are high end.

There are very few middle-income and lower-income Emiratis , in fact most of those who live in the middle of desert are rich Emiratis with very huge and luxurious villas...( from what I see ) --- is that true ? Any Emiratis here ?

Poverty is almost non-existent !

Hideous monuments to megalomania. Not a city so much as a road with pointlessly tall buildings along it. Not top 10 or indeed top 100. A nothing serving no purpose beyond look at me vanity.

Dubai is the imitator of which city? Las Vegas? Las Vegas is nothing compared to Dubai. The strip surrounded by endless suburb. That is Vegas. The smaller Dubai offers much much more.
Dubai has the Palms, the world, the Dubai Marina, the worlds largest mall and the worlds tallest tower. The Creek, the parks, the ski dome, Burj Al Arab, Wild Wadi. I am a German and do you know what i know about Las Vegas? I know only the strip and the Stratoshphere Tower and that the Airport is way to close to the strip. That`s it.

You could make valid points if you would really know about Dubai.

Oh yes you can tell they will. But I wonder how many people live there? Certainly not enough to sustain these huge buildings?

Dubai is wonderful , I give 9.5 (but heading for 10=perfection) when all the buildings are completed.

Some wicked people around here who get eaten up by their own jealousy!
