someone was saying its just like vegas but without the gambling, drinking, clubs/bars, sex etc; basically vegas with all the fun sucked out of it
its funny despite all the cool stuff they built in dubai it still only receives 1/10th of the visitors vegas does
i am still going to check it out though
