Dubai Vs Abu Dhabi

Perusing the Sydney Morning Herald tonight and I find that there is a story on the differences between Dubai and Abu Dhabi... given I live in Dubai and work in Abu Dhabi (across the road from the Yas Island F1 Circuit to be precise) I tend to agree.

Dubai is huge and magnificent in a man-made way... Abu Dhabi is quieter, more wholesome.  But beware the sleeping giant. I know that there is approx US$40Bn worth of capital works going into Abu Dhabi by my company alone over the next 3 years.  Abu Dhabi is about to hit the world stage as a mecca for culture and tourism and world events, but it will be so much more tasteful than the Dubaians up the other end of Highway 11.

Enjoy the read...
