Dubai's skyline happened because they figured out that oil wasn't going to be there forever. It's very smart move to create Dubai as a tourist destination.Now they are just trying to play the catch-up game so as to not get left behind when their wells run dry. I gave it a 8 but come back to it in 10 years and I'm sure it will rank up there with NYC, HK, and Chicago.

dubai is truly amazing. ive only seen in once on television but i didnt imagine it would have this much construction. good for the united arab emirates. they should be proud of this wonderful city.

can you grow grass in the desert? i dont mean the type of grass you have to constantly water, but naturally. if you irrigate the land, does grass grow nicely?

i voted a 10.

8.5 - I think the skyline is not that special, but there are a few very nice towers!
