In my opinion, Dubai is a very fast developing city which intimidates me in some level but also excites me. It is very unstable in terms of the economy and I would really think 100 times before coming to live there.

every community, be it a town, city or nation, has something that bonds everyone together. It could be the flag, food, music........ What is the only thing that all the people in the UAE have in common with each other? Money! It is the only common denominator.

LE, isn't sand the common factor - you've got sand everywhere. Not everyone's got money, poor debt ridden expat or a debt ridden local :)

In context to this post - strongest impression of DXB is immense, supersonic change, mostly, at the surface.

Chaos not far below the surface so nobody goes too deep.

Huge gap between hype and reality

Environmentally backward (sorry!)

Thrilling but frightening

Desperately in need of an open debate... or maybe that's just me!!
