I've been to Dubai last month and honestly I wasn't impressed, big city without character. Dubai sells itself as a beautiful, exotic destination. I thought Dubai would be the perfect city of the middle east, new, modern architecture, tallest building in the world, the largest man-made island, and the largest shopping mall... in my opinion Dubai is overrated, and i don't understand how people,especially Lebanese, go to Dubai for Vacation?! Dubai is definitely the city for business because the other countries of the region are unstable, however, definitely not a tourist destination!
Don't get me wrong, I loved the serenity one feels with such discipline, and governmental managing, which is definitely not the case in Beirut, but despite that, i was disappointed...
After 3 full days, I found myself bored in the Lego city and falling again in love with #Mycity #MyBeirut
Therefore, I am not comparing these cities anymore. It is like comparing Soul to Wealth.
