Even forgetting, for a moment, the dark side of Dubai, why would you want to see – or pay for that matter – the hideously garish, bigger is better Dubai of today. These mid east countries flush with oil money should really take a reality check. Each one of them childishly trying to out spend the other on such architectural monstrosities that defy description. Subtle is not a word in their vocabularly. It’s all one big multi billion dollar mess and should be avoided by tourists at all costs.
