South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore are the richest in terms of GDP per capita, infrastructures and a lot of other factors that make a country 'rich'. China became very rich recently, but a lot of people are poor there.
But if we weren't to consider Hong Kong as a country, the richest nations will be South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Israel.

Dubai is a fantastic place - as long as you can afford it. I understand that many wealthy NRIs and South asians operate businesses in Dubai and it is a fantastic place for tourism. Is keeping money safe in Dubai or do most expats in Dubai move their money out while they can?

Yes boring doesn't mean poor.

Developed is mainly about the wealth of an average person in the country.

Shenzhen's and a few cities in Mainland China have higher gdp per capita than Taiwan. But a big difference is Taiwan has a controlled border and international trade is also counted. A city is different from a whole economy. Also the wealth or income of people has to be compared.
