I have mixed feelings about dubai. Its an exciting but artifical place. Great hotels, excellent restaurants – the italian in the Radisson Media hotel (i can’t remember its name) has great food and wine. I went to a morrocan restaurant that was first class too.
What bothered me was the humidity – i went in June and it was awful. And the desperation – i sensed that a lot of people were there because dubai sells itself as a honey pot but now everything is so expensive, you can’t do anything there without spending money – that people are only keeping their heads above water.
I didn’t really like it – nothing is cheaper than the UK and soon they will be introducing a 5% VAT rate.
I will be going back soon with work, maybe I’ll change my mind.over 4 years ago
