I was in Dubai for about half a day. From KLIA to Dubai International airport, it took me approximately 6 hours by Emirates Airline. As I stepped onto the Arab ground for the first time of my life, I was amazed.
Almost every building is newly constructed, and some are in the midst of construction. You see tons of cranes and tractors in the city as early as 7am (GMT+4).
We had our chance to walk around the old part of Dubai before our breakfast. The weather was just nice as it was neither too hot or too cold. Perhaps, it is similar to the weather in Camerons Tea Plantation (in between Ringlet and Tanah Rata).
Wow, they even have started branches of OSAMA in Dubai!!!! Oh No!!
They even have a GOLD Street here. Unlike Malaysia, the goldsmiths do not need any security guards or metal shutters to guard their shops.
The law will protect them inevitably.
The punishment of theft or robbery is as severe as murder in this Arab nation. This is no wonder, they can parade tons of gold at the display window.
Dubai is in the midst of changing its skyline. Look at the amount of towering buildings they have now.
The 2nd building from the right, the Burj Dubai became the world’s tallest structure and is expected to be taller by several hundred feet, once construction is complete. Including the antennae and spire the total height of the Burj Dubai will be an estimated 818 meters. Wow!
Look at the Dubai skyline from afar. The picture is not really clear as I was in the bus. However you could see how modern-looking Dubai is right now.
A big thank you to the income from oil!
In near future, I would agree that Dubai skyline will definitely beat the ones in Kuala Lumpur as well as Hong Kong.
The ever famous 7-star hotel known as Burj al-Arab Hotel, which is also the world’s tallest hotel is just right behind me. Located near to a beautiful coastline, covered with white sandy beach and crystal clear water.
Who wouldn’t want to stay in this hotel?
But, are you willing to pay at least USD 1,500 for a 1-night stay in the basic room of this luxurious hotel?
