Dubai: it’s big and brash, flashy and ostentatious. It’s a super-car traffic jam on a big-city street. It’s a $1000 bottle of champagne when a cheap sparkling would do. It’s the biggest, the best and the most expensive of everything.
At least, that’s what people expect when they arrive in this Middle Eastern metropolis. Dubai is supposed to be small on culture, and big on bling. It’s here for a good time, not a long time, and it doesn’t mind telling you so.
