For anyone considering that proposition, I urge you to look into the "rule of law" - or rather, the lack thereof, in Dubai. Very easy to not get paid, or worse. Much worse.

That is beyond crazy.

Who is planning a leisure trip to Dubai? Who works in all these buildings?

I don't get it.
You get it.

Dubai is in a big crash, financing has dried up, projects are stalled or dead. Whole place being kept alive by royal family money.

I think the proper term is "house of cards"

If you look at that website listed here about Dubai and read the captions, you'll notice that a ton of what is on there hasn't been built at all or the completion dates are long past and the buildings still aren't done or don't exist.

Actually alcohol is only illegal for muslims. From what I hear Dubai is a jet setters paradise.
Isn't there a resort in Dubai built on man made islands? I seem to remember that from an episode of Extreme Engineering. Or is that in Saudi?

Great show, I need to watch it again on Netflix.
