Dubai doesn't receive anywhere near as much from Abu Dhabi as you imply, thus the reason why they had to bail out Dubai and in return had to rename what was going to be called the Burj Dubai to Burj Khalifa (Khalifa being the President of UAE, and more importantly ruler of Abu Dhabi)

Very good to hear for Dubai, I've been keeping track of the things happening there, just a few years ago I'd never heard of Dubai, and now it's popping up more and more.

Doesnt sound like a good place for an international expo with the laws they have.

Here's a list of what not to do in Dubai:

Drinking: Drinking or being drunk in public is not tolerated and the legal drinking age is 21. you should only drink in a hotel.

Public displays of affection: Holding hands, kissing or gets cosy with your other half could lead to arrest and imprisonment.

Sex outside marriage: Sex between those who are not married is illegal and can lead to severe criminal sanctions.

Homosexuality: Homosexual acts are illegal and subject to severe punishment.

Swearing: Swearing and making rude gestures, such as the middle finger, are criminal acts in the UAE.

Swimwear: Wearing bathers outside the beach is against Dubai's decent laws and swimsuits in general should be modest. Nudity at beaches is illegal.

Smoking: Lighting up in a shopping mall, government building or shop can result in a fine.

Clothing: Woman's clothing may be considered indecent if it is tight, transparent, above the knee or shows her stomach, shoulders or back. Men should wear T-shirts at all times and short shorts can attract the wrong kind of attention.

Conversation: It is illegal to "harass" women - this includes unwanted conversation and prolonged stares or eye contact.

Photos: Taking photographs of people, particularly women, without permission is illegal and can lead to arrest or fines.

Ramadan: During Ramadan, it is illegal for non-Muslims to eat, drink or smoke in public in front of Muslims between sunrise and sunset.

Medicines: Many medications available over the counter or by prescription in Australia are illegal in the Dubai.

Drugs: The UAE laws on drugs are extremely strict, and include the death penalty or life in jail

Just to name a few..

some of these i wish where true in the states and some of them are but i hate seeing people making out in public its just gross and some of these are just common sense smile.gif

back on subject i think its good to move expos around to different cities every year it makes it more easy for people that live in different areas that cant travel to see them in other cities and Dubai looks to be a pretty beautiful place iv never been there my self but seen some pictures of some of the architecture of some of the building

I'm not even surprised. Dubai is wonderful city and it's normal that it crashed other cities in voting process. Izmir was the 'opponent' of Dubai, for those who might wonder:







Thats what happens when it rains in Izmir. As someone who lived about 12 years there, this thing is repeating itself over and over again for years. While i like competition, it was a joke to put Izmir against Dubai.
