This year (or rather, last year) my every other year Christmas trip took me to Dubai. Rather than clog this site up with a very long post, I have posted my impressions of Dubai on my personal web site.
I liked Dubai, though not as much as my previous trip to Singapore. And I think that there is a very particular type of travel (and traveller) that will like Dubai. I am just not sure if I am that type of traveller.
