If you walk through Dubai you’ll be amazed. There are immense buildings, theme parks, indoor ski slopes, huge aquariums and more. It’s clear that they want to attract tourists with these cities to support the economy once the oil runs out. And you’ve got to say, they’re doing it well and are very innovative.

And it’s still advancing, albeit a little slower after the recent recession. The same goes for the neighbouring emirate Abu Dhabi. These two cities are popping up on people’s wish list for city trips. They’re popular for shopping and mostly to admire the wealth present here. And to learn about their plans for the future, although some of them seem to be pies in the sky.
