Beautiful City located in the United Arab Emirates on the Persian Gulf. Currently, they have the world's largest indoor ski facility, third largest mall, some of the world's most beautiful architecture, tallest/best hotel on earth Burj al Arab hotel, and way more. Basically, the city went from desert to world city in 7 years, from 1999 to present day 2006. By 2008, they will have the world's largest: Theme park, tallest building (Burj Dubai), Mall. Also by 2008, they will have the world's only UNDERWATER hotel. In short, this city is amazing, regardless of the bias against the region.
I'm doing my Anthropology paper on the city of Dubai. There is nothing like it; it went from desert to world city in under 10 years!!

By far the illest city in the world. Amazing food, amazing women, and of course, the world's best architecture.
Don't believe me? Just visit the damn place.

Dubai is the trading centre of the Middle East, and is the most liberal Islamic city/emirate there is.

A city in the middle of the desert (United Arab Emirates) with lots of fancy architecture and artificial islands. Dubai was a noname town 20 years ago, but now suddenly wants to be on par with cities such as Chicago or Seoul.

Despite its "heavenly" appearance that its wealthy owners constantly brag about, the city faces many issues. About 80% of its residents are migrant workers who built the city but get paid jack shit and sleep eight to a room. They're not much better off than slaves. The city's economy and culture is completely built around tourism so naturally prostitution is very present in Dubai, despite being illegal. Children often are forced into being camel jockeys and are sometimes physically and sexually abused. Homosexuals get executed when caught, since being gay is illegal in the UAE.

The city will soon be home to the completed Burj Dubai, the world's tallest skyscraper. Also the tallest building in history to be built entirely by slave labor.
Steve: Wow, I heard Dubai went up in less than a decade? Isn't that amazing?

Chris: Not really. It's not that hard to build a city when you have 1.3 million slaves doing it for you.

One of the seven Emirates that make of the UAE. One of the fastest growing cities in the world along with shanghai and Bangalore. Even though many people believe that Dubai is changing the basis of the economy to a service based one, there is no denying the fact that the vast majority of it's prosperity comes from it's huge oil reserves. When the oil dries up so does all the new skyscrapers and other tacky construction projects which are all facades that cover up it's internal social problems including but not limited to growing labor problems and disputes, anti semetism, executing women for being raped by a men and an overall poor human rights record.
Some people want to compare the likes of dubai to great cities such as New York, London, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Paris. Dubai has some fancy high rises and man made islands shaped like trees while the other cities have heritage and history and have been contributing to the world for hundreds and even thousands of years.

When the Oil runs out the boom stops and the bust starts.
