Dubai is pretty amazing and we will need to study more about their economy, history, etc. We spent two full days sightseeing with the first day in the older sections of Dubai, nearby the "creek" and the second day, in more modern sections further away. We saw a lot of skyscrapers and new buildings and wonder how the economy sustains all the growth. Unlike most places we have visited, the fanciest hotels do not allow non-guests on their properties so we only looked from the streets. We ended the day at the Dubai Mall, largest mall in the world and next to tallest skyscraper in the world. It was quite crowded since today is Friday so most people have the day off. Needless to say, the people watching was interesting.
