Dubai's skyline is small and the Burj Khalifa does NOT fit with the other buildings!

Saying Dubai's skyline is small is the craziest thing i've heard on this forum.
It has 82 buildings over 600 ft! Atlanta only has 11 over 600 ft!

Many of Dubai's buildings are still halfway done. So saying Atlanta's skyline is better than Dubai's skyline which is still under construction is obviously laughable. Lol

Atlanta


I have to say Dubai has an better skyline. In addition I have never head anyone that want to head to Atlanta because of it's skyline but heard many people that want to go to Dubai because of it's skyline.

Too bad the tourism industry in Dubai will grow much larger by the time the UAE runs out of oil. If i go to Dubai im not going there for oil ill go there to check out Dubai Mall, Burj, Go to the beach, palm island, etc..

Well, they've been saving up a good bit of the proceeds and investing in infrastructure and the expansion of other industries (hence all the skyscrapers and other investments) so the entire idea is to build these so they have something when the oil money runs out.

Even as an ATLien, I have to realistically go with Dubai on this one. I just have to be glad that people even mention Atlanta in the World Forum.

I think Dubai vs. Shanghai would be a good poll for skylines. They are more comparable.
