  1. Christine, Joyce, Kaumudi:
    We think that this is a really interesting post because it’s really interesting to see these because it disproves stereotypes that we have created in our heads. It is also interesting to see what Dubai will look like in the future.

  2. I think the hotel is really cool and this has defintely cleared some of the stereotypes I had. But I thought the Middle East had a bad economy so would the Middle Easterners be able to stay there?

  3. By the way, this is a really good post. COMMENT ON OUR BLOG PLEASE. WE HAVE NO COMMENTS T_T

  4. This post is really interesting. I used to stereotype Middle East as a poor continent, but it seems like it’s one of the best place to visit. Dubai is probably one of the richest city with all those big hotels 😛
