Travelling To Dubai - Is It Worth It?

I'd definitely think twice before going there. But it does seem like an exciting place to visit nonetheless.

Exciting? Have they good clubs, bars, casinos, theatres, festivals?

None of that would excite me - I'd be more interested in the modern architecture and the land reclaiming projects.

Agree I would find that aspect interesting too, but to be fair there are many more interesting hospitable locales with similar architecture and advanced land reclamation projects.

From what I've heard they do, but in compounds for westerners, my mate also thought Iran was interesting, cause of the underground music going on there, which he heard but could never touch, as he never had an opening into it.

Iran is a totally different story though. I would die to go there, in fact if I did I might just.

I'm really just chatting, so don't mind me, but my point is unless you've lived there (or visited), or any where you can't actually judge the place.

Well, to be fair Pixie, anywhere that treats homosexuality as a crime is fair game to be judged.

I think contemporary western designed arab influenced architecture would get a little repetitive and tiresome very quickly. A city with several cultural and architectural influences over several centuries like beirut would definitely be more visually stimulating.

Oh I agree, no doubt about that, but I thought it was a discussion on why not to travel to Dubai, if you want to in my experience why not, just as everyone said keep it in the westerners compound, What I mean your traveling, be sensible about it. If we are discussing homosexuality as a person in traveling, we might want to look at home first, and make it comfortable for people to travel here.

of course you can! there are hundreds of books on cities, not to mention internet sites, web forums and friends who have visited to give one a fairly decent picture of any given place.

@ Elat, no doubt you have a good point but there's something about the excessive, bombastic nature of their building projects that is compelling to me.

I had an opportunity to fly there, pretty much for free a couple of years ago. I looked in to it, and still couldn’t find a reason to go. Also, the accommodation seems very expensive. I'm sure Thomas is right about some of the new buildings being interesting, but for my money I’d rather visit Jordan or Syria. I call it my Axis of Evil tour and I hope to do it some day.
