This all depends on what you consider desolate, ugly and natural beauty (and it seems our opinions are almost opposites).

But, it should be noted that what you saw (in the foreground) is a big construction site. I would wait until the entire area is completed before you make a final opinion.

Spaceship Dubai

The cladding makes all the differance, doesn't it? It's looking good ... sorta like a space ship!

I have to agree. Ugly city with what seems to be awful city planning.

What floor are they up to now? I find the steel section confusing as it has mezzanines.

Is there such a badass sandstorm all year long? You hardly get to see a real clear sky in Dubai, it seems.
