Dubai is more like.... I don't know... a newer, shinier, flashier, emptier, more sanitized (though still rife with prostitution) version of Las Vegas. With poorer working conditions for the millions of expat laborers and less concern given to the environment. Or... though most people won't get this reference... as I once told my friend Dubai is kind of like Tyson's Corner (affluent area of Northern Virginia with a lot of expensive restaurants and big shopping malls), but less lived-in, with more English-speakers and fewer Arabs. (there are a ton of Arabs around Tyson's/McLean; also tons of people from other countries)
Edit ah I see I am not the only one..
In the Netherlands alone we have atleast half a dozen big indoor skicentres with real snow (Snowworld being the major name, and I believe the one in Landgraaf is the biggest in the world)
