Why is it that people consider Dubai to be fake? If Dubai builds something, people say that it is trying to be New York but when Singapore or China build something they call it unique.

I dont know why people are so jealous. Is it because they cant stand an arab/muslim city dominating? I dont know but I'm curious to find out the reason of their jealousy.

Even if Dubai is a muslim, arab, and a hot desert city, it still has the right to do whatever it desires. Whether that includes growing grass/trees, building the worlds tallest building, the worlds biggest airport, the worlds richest horse race, the worlds tallest hotel, or whatever. Its Dubai's right and dont give me the crap that Dubai has no history. It doesnt need a history to be successful. Its history in the making. If one does need a history to be succesful then why isnt Egypt prosperous? What history did New York have in the early 1900s? None and infact it still has no history. Hate it or love it, Dubai is gona dominate.
You're so right, people are jealous about it if they put 3 or less.For me It's a 9/10

People that put 3 or less are idiots. But also people that put 10/10 are unrealistic.

1. It have 2 big separate skylines.

2. Burj Dubai and Business Bay areas are not finished, SZ-road have like 2 rows of skyscrapers.

3. The tall Marina area is UC, JBR and JLT area is filled with midrises and one supertall.

4. Dubai Creek is nothing spectacular.

P.S.
*areas not finished, UC - they still have A LOT to build there. (not even half this decade)

is an 8/10, maybe 9/10 after BD is finished (with lake and mall).

excuse me, but do you always consider someone who has a different opinion than yours, an idiot?

and the fact that this city's Arab or located in the desert doesn't mean anything!

isn't LV in the middle of the desert? and isn't Beirut growing tremendously right now in terms of tourism and all?

ppl judge this city based on the way it looks, the way it grows and what it has to offer to tourists... and if someone isn't impressed, or doesn't like it, then he's entitled to his opinion

Anybody else find it ironic that the guy complaining about people describing the city as 'fake' posted a picture showing the gigantic man-made island?

I'll give it an 7. I'm impressed by all of the tall buildings, but I find many of the designs to be very tacky and I prefer skylines that have a more focussed cluster.

that's why only 8. although the tallest structure is impressive, it looks terrifying, like a tree-trunk without any branch in the centre of a desert. the rest quite good, but buildings resemble rather factory of skyscrapers than creation the city with soul (sic!). how is Dubai going to look in a decade???
now think how it would look in the space of a century...

6.5/10

Too spread out, and too many artificial-looking buildings. Good height, though.
