is here now, where summer reaches 47 and even 50 degrees C. That's
warm my friend. Today - how's the weather in Abu Dhabi and Dubai?
See here...It's an even
and that's nice and
liveable. A paradise where east meets west and to which the peoples
of the world are now flocking. Thousands, daily. Are you
about to take a journey amongst these exotic arabian sights and
warm July day, I was a visitor and my first impression of Dubai
was one of massive growth. A friend in the construction industry
in Dubai said that 80% of the world's tall cranes are busy working
there and on glancing around you realise that most of the city is
being constructed right before your eyes! Thanks to insightful
Royal leadership and smart state planning, Dubai's current rate
of growth exceeds that of the Chinese cities. Some achievement.
How do they do it?
Located here in West
Asia at the beginning of The Persian Gulf, just over the water from
Iran, The United Arab Emirates enjoys an abundant wealth
of oil and tourism, and boasts two highly awarded international
airlines, in Etihad and Emirates. Such national achievements find
their reflection in the blue green glassed windows of exquisite
architecture... the new buildings going up massively everywhere
you look. Notably, the Burj Al Arab hotel, pictured above,
which is right on the water and the ambitious Burj Dubai
(Dubai Tower), now renamed the Burj Khalifa - thanks to financial support from oil rich Abu Dhabi, - is now completed - rising to much, much more than ... 170 storeys? It's over 800 metres tall. Almost a kilometre high. The World's tallest building.
By comparison, New
York's Empire State Building has 102 stories. The Burj Khalifa certainly
is already the world's tallest building, thanks to engineering
co-operation between the USA, UAE, UK and Samsung Construction of South Korea. What's
impressive to me is the thinking, the planning and the mindset of
achievement behind such an architectural and engineering masterpiece.
You've got to see this city. Dubai will absolutely blow your ex-pat mind!
A luxury shopping
mall, The Mall of The Emirates, even has a ski-field with snow and
tows inside the mall all glassed off and with air con. I am not
kidding you. Ski Dubai would seem crazy and impossible in such a
hot climate - but there it is. Not far from a huge book shop, a
French bakery cafe and a Persian rug store. That's the international
flavor of the Emirates Mall. Where Emirati, Iranian, Saudi, UK ex
pats, Filipinos, Indians, Pakistanis, Japanese, Aussies and Kiwis
all stroll in global harmony.
And there we've touched
on the truth of Dubai. It works. It is a form of free market globalisation
that works. Practically a duty free shopping environment of global
abundance and that's why you must visit Dubai and see it
with your very own wide open eyes. You're in for a pleasant
surprise. All you need to do is 'decide' to fly to the tourist hotspots
of the UAE for some blissful time out. Go on, pamper yourself. You
deserve to sense and feel this unprecedented Arabian paradise. The
experience of a lifetime. Where the past blends exquisitely into
the future. Now come with me and save
on travel, globally! Step out ...
