Dubai 2012

Dubai 2012 is the fastest growing city in the world at present & is a dazzling, cosmopolitan location with ultra-modern gleaming skyscrapers, beautiful weather & some of the most luxurious hotels to be enjoyed anywhere. In the late 1960s, it was simply a pile of sand. Over the past 50 years, the rate at which Dubai has developed has fascinated people from all walks of life & helped create some of the most fascinating cultural norms on the planet.

The drying up of the oil reserves within the next twenty years has meant that Dubai has had to turn its attention towards other means of obtaining income to sustain its existence. Dubai 2012 has made an impressive start by turning its attention to two other important areas of business, tourism and commerce. Through huge investment in mass tourism, large hotel complexes are being built everywhere to accommodate the following generations of tourists seeking fine sand beaches, perfect weather & a good environment to relax & enjoy all the luxuries that one wishes to indulge in on holiday.

Unfortunately for the western world where democracy & a liberal way of living rules, here in the Arabian world there are a number of customs & rules that just have to be accepted concerning the consume of alcohol in public for example or showing too much skin in religious areas, not to mention petting & kissing in public. For us photographers too there are a few restrictions concerning the photographing of Arabian women for example & certain buildings belonging to the state or royal family. The state is very strict by western standards, on the other hand this is to be seen positive as there is so little criminality, theft, sexual harassment & physical violence making Dubai a very safe city. When these cultural differences are respected then there is no reason why you can’t have the holiday of a lifetime here on the Persian Gulf. I did.

Did You Know?

Camel racing is an extremely popular sport in Dubai, similar to what football is to the US and what hockey is to Canada. Given the camel’s size, only children could participate in racing them. Instead of allowing Emirati or Dubai residents’ children to participate, there has been a problem in the past with having children illegally trafficked into the country for the sole purpose of racing camels. The rest of the world eventually caught on to this issue and has since put a stop to it for the most part. Leave it to Dubai to come up with a solution. Now, child-sized robots are being built and are racing the camels. They cost anywhere from $300 to $10,000.
