Dubai is the Las Vegas of the Middle East. Lots of style but not much substance.

The other three are all real and impressive cities.

Dubai by a long way. Although I have never being to New York.

You would get a much closer result if you substituted Dubai with a city like London or Paris.

New York is an amazing city. I actually think it gets a lot of bad publicity, way more than it deserves. Incredible city.

I also liked Singapore a lot, but compare NYC to SG, and NYC is just a monster of absolutely everywhere in this world, where SG is quite small comparitively.

I've never been to Sydney or Dubai.

There are plenty of amazing cities in the world.

I would never say something ignorant and narrow minded like what you said in that sentence.

New York City is an amazing city but Singapore is an amazing city too. They just both express it a bit differently.
