Dubai is the land of extravagance where millionaires and billionaires go to play. I have to admit, I’d love to go play the role of the rich and carefree: Who wouldn’t want to drive around in a Lamborghini, or go to an ATM and have bars of gold come out? It would be a blast to play tennis on top of the world, or to place your bets on robot driven camels. And who would say no to having friends over to play foosball on a jewel-encrusted table? Check out these photos of the amazing city below – and prepare to feast your eyes on all the opulence and excess that Dubai has to offer.
The Palm Jumeirah Island fireworks, set a world record for money spent. It cost $1 million dollars a minute for the six minute fireworks display. 100 computers were needed to choreograph the 500,000 rounds. Watch the video, it’s truly incredible, but I think I could find something better to spend that kind of money on.
