Default What do you like about Dubai?

hi everyone,
i have just arrived in UAE for a short period of time, and started to work here for a short-term contract.

I am not sure if i should come back to dubai again after this contract ends. Thus, i am just interested to know, for those who have lived here for years, would you recommend Dubai as a city to work? How do you like Dubai after all these years?

i am just interested in hearing different voices, though i know the majority has come here for a good salary

look forward to ur perspectives....

Don't you know yourself after working there?

What we like may differ enormously from what floats your boat...

I like the road going west, after Jebel Ali, when the pylons stop and it starts to get greener
