In less than two decades, Dubai has transformed itself from an obscure Gulf emirate into a global centre for business, tourism, and luxury living. It is a fascinating case study in light-speed urban development, hyperconsumerism, massive immigration, and vertiginous inequality. Its rulers have succeeded in making Dubai into a worldwide brand, publicizing its astonishing hotels and leisure opportunities while at the same time successfully downplaying its complex policies towards guest workers and suppression of dissent. In this enormously readable book, Syed Ali delves beneath the dazzling surface to analyze how - and at what cost - Dubai has achieved such success. Ali brings alive a society rigidly divided between expatriate Westerners living self-indulgent lifestyles on short-term work visas, native Emiratis who are largely passive observers and beneficiaries of what Dubai has become, and workers from the developing world who provide the manual labour and domestic service needed to keep the emirate running, often at great personal cost.

We had the luxury of an extra 3 to 4 hours travelling in the bus for our extra money. The trip is advertised as including: pick up from your hotel, Air conditioned coach, English speaking guide, and mineral water and entrance fees.

Even before their financial situation kicked off, there were some great deals to be had in the United Arab Emirates and for less money than a week in the Canaries, and more guaranteed sun, we were able to head off for Christmas week in Dubai. To put things in perspective, we paid £550 each for flights and 8 nights accommodation...
Advantages: Dubai is a safe place with very good quality of life. There is universal brotherhood everywhere. Disadvantages: None for me, but the hot weather for tourists who are not used to this.
