All This Dubai

While being on business in the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Dubai, one Russian traveler and photographer decided not to spare a chance and made a helicopter trip around the center of the city to make a photo-story. To say that the city is rich means not to say anything. Dubai literally shines with luxury, mile-high skyscrapers and hi-tech facilities. These shots will carry you to the world of an incredible beauty with its fairy-like views.

    I will never travel to Dubai.If I want to be in a world class hotel in a hot desert I will drive 445 miles to Las Vegas!

    Look at how skinny the tallest building in the world is.I bet the Sears tower in Chicago has more floor space!

    I heard from a teacher of world economics that Dubai was running out of oil so the government transformed the city to keep the money coming in.Unfortunately bankruptcy can happen!

    oh my god, the decadence..
    talk about the bare necessities to live.

  9. Myself says:

    Dubai is not the capital Abudhabi is.

  10. Trader says:

    Yea, all those buildings and the only missing part is TENANTS. I like the quote from recent WSJ article:

    “You see ‘for rent’ signs on every building,” says Ziad Makhzoumi, chief financial officer of Arabtec Holding PJSC, one of the Mideast’s biggest construction companies. “But you don’t see them on every floor.”

  11. Taupey says:

    Whenever I see pictures of this place, I think of all the human beings who were lured into coming there with false promises of descent work and wages. Then upon their arrival having their passports taken from them ~ and exploited and abused into building this artificial and overplanned Hell hole that’s Dubai!

  12. Charly says:

    Since when Dubai is the UAE capital?

  18. are you kidding says:

    Dubai is also the terror and oil financial capital of the middle east . all of that money and not hardly a dime to help the poor in the middle east or produce anything of value .

  19. Taupey says:

    I should have a comment published in this post as well.

    • Taupey says:

      Ah yes there it is No.11!

      ER Moderator = Walking Enigma!

      Now back to real life and making my Voo Doo dolls!

      Have a Wonderful Winter Solstice Everyone!

  20. Goober Natorial says:

    Let’s not forget they are putting off paying back the $60 billion they owe on the world market. None of this is paid for. It will collapse.

  21. maxD says:

    Impressive indeed. But somehow I don’t feel like living there. It’s not cosy or homy. It is like living in a movieset. But the movie never ends.. All this concrete and steel. Not for me. I like old cities with a bit of new.

  22. Michael Brito says:

    What a waste of money, resources and time… True human folly..
    We humans deserve our coming extinction!!

    • João from Brazil says:

      We should see the “shacks” and the “prisons” where live all the construction workers… It´s horrible… Thousands of indians workers there are in poor conditions…
      I 100% agree with Michael Brito…
      Humanity is overrated.

      And I prefer the “nature constructions” like old posts about wild places in Russia…

  23. Jason says:

    When the ocean rises buildings will be swamped!

    If I want to be in a world class hotel I will drive 400 miles
    to Las Vegas!

  24. Journey On The Sea Wind says:

    Dubai doesn’t impress me a bit!

  25. Kasim says:

    Waste of money. That money could have been spent on the poor and they would have fed thousands a day for thousands of years. Look at the African kids with no food while these fools are building non necessary buildings.

  26. Mike says:

    these country is corrupted and owns to all countrys in the world and they dont have the money to pay

  27. gitmoed says:

    Where do all the toilets flush to?

    thanks from tony

    You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

  30. JerryBarada says:

    Gonna be funny as hell when all the polar ice melts, and sea levels rise, washing away all that careful planning.

  31. M7 says:

    I wonder why there are no pictures of the almost enslaved people coming from places like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Filipines and of the slums where they are submitted to live. The first thing the dreamers of a better life who goes there lose is the passaport. Beyond this Fantasy Island there are people living and working like slaves. I Hope this Abomination is covered by the sands, along with everyone who planned this crimes against everything that’s human.

  32. May Cry says:

    Looks like a artificial scenery, a movie set. Has nothing natural, Its all grey, has almost no green. I would never leave my homeland to such a place. There’s no place like home. And you cant call this amount of metal and rocks a home. The desert will take it away.

  33. Sterling says:

    LOL Damn it Finnish you are such a cheat! Give me my words back!

  34. Obsidian says:

    It’s a SONG not a cry! You freaky azz Finnish Australian!

  35. Avrora says:

    That’s more like it! Your are so lucky you are not standing right next to me because I would slap the Finnish right out of you, really! :P

    This place needs some terrorism.

    • Randall says:

      Looks can be deceiving. I’ve been told that, for instance, the sewage problem is quite severe and the E. Coli count in the waters you see in these pictures is very high. In addition, the accounting practices which accompanied the construction are murky at best. Finally, the energy requirements of these complexes require a lot of faith in the country’s future.
      All that being said, the basic business idea of turning the place into a tourist centre worked for Las Vegas in the middle of a desert, so best of luck to them.

  38. May Cry says:

    I have no idea whats the problem with you all. I am not finnish, nor Australian. In fact, I am Brazilian. English Russia is quite popular around here, despite of you.
    This is really a place to make comments on the blog, or some kind of kindergarden of trolls?
    Slap me? It would take you a long way from wherever you are…
    And is quite interesting how everybody has balls behind desktops…

    • The Great Eastern says:

    • Taupey says:

      You are right. Most commenters here are children with no hair on their balls yet. But they do like to talk big!!! Without trealiing how silly and immature they sound. Most never even left their homecountry, I’m sure, Children. They will grow up, eventually..

  39. M7 says:

    Why my comment is not here?

  40. navid says:

    it’s not arabic gulf!!!
    just and forever,persian gulf!

  41. M7 says:

    So, we cannot make comments here on how this”wonder” of the east is being built by deceived and enslaved people coming from poor countries. Very sad. And disappointing.

    • Jacobstads Wapen says:

      LOL, Why you keep changing my nick Finnish… don’t you like it? Why you touch my cookies like that, you suppose to be g@y remember?

  42. Jason says:

    Finnish does not control things around here!He has posted a page or 2 but he does not control the moderation or remove comments.2 years ago when I started to blog on this site it was necessary to type the word Stalin or Lenin to post a comment so the site would know you were a human.After a few months it changed to solving a simple math problem.That was flawed and now there is the moderation which is also flawed!I can write my first comment on this post and it will await moderation.I can write anything els but my first comment and it will post right away!!I type from the same computer with the same URL and the same mail adress-sometimes a different adress to try to get around the moderation which does not always work!

    The capital of the UAE is Abu Dhabi.

    You don’t have to be rich to enjoy Dubai. Dubai is driven by tourism and thus it’s only the luxurious parts of the city that are always advertised. Actually, no. It’s not only the luxurious parts of Dubai – its heritage (pearl diving for example) has also been promoted well by the city. It’s just that the media prefers the new Dubai. But that’s also been good for their economy, right?

    NYC? Really? Well, at least in Dubai you won’t have to be scared all the time about being mugged in a dark alley and have triple/quadruple locks installed on your house doors.

    Dubai may have a lot of negative sides – economically, even environmentally – but at least it has been doing far better things than creating wars or at least it isn’t well known for its crime rates or drug trafficking or whatever have you. The UAE rulers have also been working hard and achieving far greater things for their country AND THEIR PEOPLE than most countries. The pretty fast paced development of Dubai, and now, Abu Dhabi, is a big proof to that, don’t you think?

    Your not a woman.

  51. Mil says:

    Most of the westerners who post here seems to be peeved at the way a country in the East has developed fast. It will some time they will be used to such things as this and much more in the coming years. Especially the Indian Subconitnent is considered. I have heard that one much higher and bigger than this one is on the cards in India. So it is the time of the people in th Eastern quarter of the world, previously it was in the west…so lets all join hands together now as we were forced to join hands for you (West) in your imperial world.

    Looks magically weird..

    I have family staying in Dubai n I used to visit a lot.. Last visit was almost 4 years ago.. But I found it boring cuz I stayed for an entire summer in a desert..!!

    I did realize that u are lost in Dubai if u dont have a car, and public transport is ok but I never used it.. Malls are awesome, lots of attractions for kids and adults are within a 2-3 hour radial drive from the city..

    The beaches are heavenly with their white sand.. N the crowd everywhere is also really good.. Lots of fast food joints..

    The Sheikh of Dubai is extremely rich and also very competitive.. No disrespect to him but he thinks he is God.. He wants the biggest everything in Dubai and he is going to keep building larger than life stuff…. Although I caught a glimpse of one of his sons and he looked really hot..

    In short I could never live in Dubai.. Cuz I do believe its only for the supremely rich, unless u have a good job there!

    There is a awful mistake in 2th pic(map),
    2 times must seen Persian Gulf, not arabian,
    refer to the wiki,
    and all around the web and history.

    Dubai looks good, but what the heck does it have to do with Russia?

    漂亮的迪拜!

  56. Belkhair Ali says:

    “while being on business, in the capital of the UAE, Dubai” DUBAI IS NOT THE CAPITAL!!! Abu Dhabi is, and i think if you went to dubai you will realy know which is the capital

  57. Belkhair Ali says:

    i just read the whole thing, half of what is said is wrong. you need better definitions! waw this is NOT profesional

  58. Kristiaan says:

    I must agree with Belkhair Ali.

    I went to Dubai 2 months ago, and stayed at hotel Atlantis for one week. (Beau-ti-ful!)

    We didn’t pay anything near $12.000. (My girlfriend, her two kids (age 3 & 7) and me!)

    You can even go to the website and check the prices.

  59. Vegtor says:

    Hi all!
    Dubai has oils, but not more than the Capital Abu Dhabi. Also Attractive or not, it depends on your visit proposes.

    Thanks

  62. Monica says:

    Taiping in Arabic land; all my modecarted Burj Dubai. Burj Dubai-Moscow moving hotel, alive ?

  63. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about this and I benefit from learning about this subject. If possible, as you gain facts, please add to this blog with more information. I have found it enormously useful. It certainly makes a lot of business sense for them, but it doesn’t make any business sense for the customer.

  64. Wow..! Nice pictures. Its awesome.

  65. Paul Randall says:

    Thanks. Nice photo essay.

  66. enormous Russia……and at the same time legendary place.there is nothing I can say but great place!c:
