  1. memang pembangunan kat dubai sangat hebat dan pesat terutamanya "the world" kerana pemerintah UAE ingin jadikan UAE sebagai pusat pelancongan. Cuba bayangkan satu kawasan padang pasir mampu dijadikan tempat yang berair. lagipun negara arab sedang bertanding kemampuan mereka untuk membina bangunan tertinggi. Burj Dubai juga akan dipintas sebuah lagi bangunan yang akan dibina di Arab Saudi
