Sightseeing in Dubai

People told me that there is a construction boom happening in Manila. You better don't travel to Dubai to put Manila's construction boom into perspective. Here in Dubai (see picture on top) it almost feels like Shanghai or any other Chinese city these days. Quite different from Manila....

Take some private capital from Mumbay and mix it Saudi dollars and you get the tallest building in the world. Sitting down with a mint tea and puffing on a "hubbely bubbely" put it in perspective for me..! Wonder what Trump smoked there to come up with the crazy palm island idea?

Actually the Emirates have almost no oil, they just process and export it.

I have no words!!
Picture is breathtaking!!
I cannot imagine, how human beings could build such masterpieces!!
Arabs are really fine fellows.
They want to be the first, and they will be, definitely!
So many fantastic projects are rising day by day, people from all over the world are interested in investing in Dubai property.
Thanks to the government and UAE's people who really aim at high successes.
