Dubai – city of many contrasts
Over recent decades, Dubai, the desert oasis, has developed to become a luxurious metropolis and financial hub of the Middle East. Dubai radiates incomparable panache, which has survived the financial crisis. Yet all that glitters is not gold in Dubai. Many poorly paid workers reveal alternative aspects of a city that would otherwise put all others in the shade.

"Do buy" in Dubai
Gigantic shopping paradises that leave no wish unfulfilled. In Dubai, shopping malls are an everyday aspect of living in society, drawing in both tourists and residents equally effectively. Incredible but true – every year 34 million visitors flood into the "Mall of the Emirates", one of the city’s largest shopping centres. Dubai – a city in a shopping frenzy.

Cash rolling in Dubai
So many luxury cars are scarcely to be seen anywhere in the world other than Dubai. Cars are seen as status symbols of wealth and power. Two million residents and 1.1 million cars – in Dubai cars are the number one means of transport. With fuel costing just 20 euro cents per litre, there’s little interest in saving fuel, but the best and most expensive cars do indeed need to be serviced and repaired. Visiting the service garages uncovers lots of rare models.

Abu Dhabi – the business hub on the Persian Gulf
Notwithstanding Abu Dhabi’s position as the second largest city after Dubai within the United Arab Emirates, it has long since overtaken Dubai in commercial terms. Abu Dhabi is indisputably the political and commercial centre of the world. Abu Dhabi is now seeking to position itself as an ecological city, in order to reduce dependency on petroleum and natural gas. And this, even though Abu Dhabi has control of almost 10 percent of the world’s petroleum reserves.
