The Top Scenes Practically Reveal What Could Only Happen In Dubai, The City Of Gold!

City Of Gold- Dubai

A recent study revealed that in Dubai, one in every 100 people there is a millionaire, but uber-wealth doesn’t always breed class or style. Sometimes the things the Middle-Eastern nouveau riche choose to spend their money on are a little mind-boggling. Check out these over-the-top scenes from Dubai to see what we mean.

1. Gold Everything

They take their bling seriously in the UAE. Gold jewelry is nice and all, but how about a solid gold Lamborghini? This ultra-luxury car made from a 500kg block of solid gold was on display at the 2013 Dubai Motor Show, with a $7.4 million price-tag, in case you’re in the buying mood.

2. Pets Taking Their Owners for Walks

Money can buy just about anything, but not good sense. Just because you can afford a pet lion, doesn’t mean you should actually get one, much less ride one.


3. Underwater Hotel

The Hydropolis Underwater Hotel and Resort was a proposed mega-project that actually sunk a few years ago. It was envisioned to have 220 luxurious suits 65 feet under the sea, with a goal of being the world’s first 10 star hotel. Various engineering and financial obstacles have put this project on hold, but it may just become a reality in years to come. In the meantime, the Atlantis hotel in The Palm, Dubai offers Poseidon and Neptune suites set in an aquarium for those who want to feel like they’re staying beneath the ocean surface

4. Cheetahs Riding Shot Gun

Because the ultimate status symbol is the fastest land animal on earth. Just wait until your buddies see you cruising around town with this cat.

5. Luxury Police Cars

Even the local police like to ride around in style. Dubai spent $6.5 million on a fleet of high-speed luxury patrol cars including a Ferrari, McLaren, Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, Lamborghini and Aston Martin. You can’t have the criminals driving around in fancier cars than the cops, can you? Turns out the crime rate in Dubai is relatively low, so this is mostly all for show

6. Grooms for Twins

Time to marry off your daughters? Why not take out an ad in the local paper to snag some wealthly Dubai-based grooms for your educated girls. Twins ought to draw a lot of good candidates.

7. Camel Beauty Contests

You won’t see as many camel beauty contests in Dubai as in Abu Dhabi, but all Emirati people do take pride in their humped-back pets. One annual event, Camel Mazayna, draws over 15,000 dromedaries and prizes are given for the fastest, “milkiest,” and most beautiful creatures

8. Phones That Cost More Than Your Car

We all have a smartphone, but most of us don’t have to take out a second mortgage to get one like these gilded babies.

9. Who Needs a Dog?

Next time you complain about having to take your mutt for a walk in the snow, think about this.

10. Gold Vending Machines

We’ve reported on crazy things you can buy in vending machines around the world before, but this one is the gold standard. Very handy if you need a quick gold top up, as one does. If it’s good enough for chocolate bars, why not gold bars?
