How much would one of those set you back?
Dubai was built for one reason and one reason only. It is the New York of the One World crowd. Contemplate that grasshoppers.....
(and only found a few cars)
It is very cool. The image zoom seems to “break down” about 50 feet from the objects (building windows, etc.). Which is pretty darn impressive.
I have heard Dubai is quite the interesting place. But not so interesting I would actually go there.
A response I wrote to another FReeper (who was wondering if one could drink in Dubai): This is a late post and I am not sure if someone responded, but you can actually drink in the UAE (in particular Dubai). I have been there, and it is basically a city from Star Wars. I have pictures that (especially at night) seem to be from some sci-fi movie. Some of the craziest bars and clubs. Dubai is quite liberal, while Abu Dhabi and the other Emirates tend to be more conservative. In terms of drink and vice, Dubai is basically what Vegas would like to become when it grows up. The only problem with Dubai is that it is a city that was literally built from slavery. Amazing place to be in, and fantastic shopping, but if you have a conscience you only need to catch a glimpse of the Bangladeshi workers to realize that pleasure is built, not on sweat, but blood.
