In Dubai, besides of going to beach and do shopping you can visit wild wadi for Arabian-themed water park, if you want to experience snow ski in the desert heat, try the indoor ski slope, there are plenty of bars and clubs so you can hang out or have a bit of shisha in arabic cafe.

Yeah, the pseudo-intelectually coltivated people. These same guys (and gals) braging about "culture" and "history" actually pass their time popping pills, getting high and getting wasted in a club or bar ... so who's the shallow one?

BTW, the poster who started this is actually a spammer or the new generation. To bad they can still fool shallow people.

To me, the tourist appeal of Dubai is more in the engineering than in the available activities. I'd spend all my time sightseeing through the grand projects instead of wasting my time on an indoor ski slope or in a club/bar, there's plenty of indoor ski slopes and clubs/bars in the area where I live, but there certainly aren't any giant palm-shaped islands or residential clusters consisting of almost nothing but supertalls, or 828m high skyscrapers anywhere around Oldenburg....

i used to think of dubai as not very impressive, even with the burj. i suppose i like cities more than tall buildings on their own with sand around them, but this core has become very impressive.

I think it should be added. It has the potential to overtake PT.
