Las Vegas' younger yet bigger cousin. Lacks any character, seems like a very forced city and there's literally no one populating the streets. They should do a documentary on the living conditions of the construction workers and what they go through on a daily basis, because it's beyond slavery. Whatever that's not for me to judge, deserves no higher than a 7/10.

BEYOND slavery ?

Construction workers are dragged behind SUVs until their skin falls off ?
Construction workers in the UAE have their daughters and wives stolen and made into sex slaves ?
Construction workers in the UAE are hanged from a tree and have their testicles torn off ?
Construction workers are only allowed to drink from Nigg, ,, aghh i mean Indian water fountains ?
Construction workers are beaten down to death by patrol officers ?

kid , stick to what you do best, trolling online games and picking your nose.

Wow, this shot is amazing! I just can't imagine the heat bouncing off those buildings and railways I understand the hate people have for Dubai, but you have to give props. The city's skyline is AMAZING!

People who give it less than 8 are just funny- I don't think that Dubai's skyline is in the same class with HK's and NYC's but still, less than 8 is ridiculous.
And this particular forum is called "rate out skylines"- so please rate the city's skyline, not the city itself. Even if half of these skyscrapers are empty and the city is boring, it shouldn't harm the city's skyline rating.
