In addition to Dubai’s eccentricities is the “World Islands” …
An artificial archipelago of various small islands constructed in the rough shape of a world map, located in the waters of the Persian Gulf.
Dubai has recently attracted world attention through many innovative large construction projects and sports events.
The city has become symbolic for its skyscrapers and high-rise buildings, in particular the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
If your looking for fancy hotels, Dubai has the greatest to offer …
Not just fancy, but extra ordinary structures that will boggle your mind.

People of Dubai love gold, no wonder why it is one of the most expensive city in the world.
They even have dental prostheses made of gold and diamonds. 24 carat gold and 156 small diamonds worth $ 153,000. Wow!
If there’s a golden dental prostheses, of course golden cars wouldn’t be left behind.
And the one that popped out my eye is this golden Bugati!
How about a ride?
But beware of over speeding cause Dubai’s police car might easily catch you on the run.
Talking about luxury cars? Here’s one, only in Dubai …
One thing that you’ll hate in Dubai is the traffic jam (or should I say a car show?)
We’ll sports car are not always a hit here, some are just left abandoned …
I would really grab one of these abandoned cars if I can.
Luxury cars, mega structures, and beautiful places isn’t the only thing that shows Dubai’s wealth but also their exotic pets.
In Dubai it is not unusual to see a cheetah as copilot
or a tiger …
But it is still surprising to see a man riding a lion.
