7. Zero Debt Acceptance
Dubai is one of the few cities where people try to incur as little debt as possible due to the prevailing ‘zero debt tolerance’ policy. If anyone does acquire debt and they miss payments, then they are either sent to jail or deported.
Dubai has many attractions, especially for foreigners, but when they start living beyond their means, then they either flee or are deported.
8. Fastest Growing City
Dubai happens to be growing at such a swift pace that it has the economists concerned that an inevitable financial doom is waiting.
Building Dubai’s Metro system in 2009, consisting of 42 stations, took only an astonishing 18 months. Plus, the trade and tourism industry helps Dubai to flourish.
9. An Astonishing Crime Rate Of 0%
Dubai follows a Muslim law due to which it boasts a crime rate of 0%. Even though foreigners populate the city, people still know that any crime will lead to severe consequences.
Not only this, but Dubai seriously loves its police force and makes sure the world knows that they are well taken care of. This is displayed by the police cars, which use only the top car models such as Ashton Martin, Ferraris, and Lamborghinis, which are priced at $1.7 million.
10. Highest Tennis Court In The World
Talk about a match that gives you a thrill just by watching it. Yes, we are talking about the world’s highest tennis court where there is a constant threat of players falling off the edge of a 1000-foot tall building.
The tennis court is situated at the top of the Burj Al-Arab hotel.
11. Always Stay Cool
Dubai makes sure that with the massive amount of cash inflow, its citizens are facilitated as well. They don’t have boring bus stops like other countries. Instead, they have mini buildings at every stop that are fully air-conditioned so that people are always protected from the blazing sun.
This was certainly the most useful solution Dubai has ever come up with. For being situated in a desert, people might quickly get drenched in sweat as soon as they step out.
12. Luxury Cars Abandoned In Thousands
In some cities, people hardly see luxury cars. Whereas in Dubai, you see luxury cars from high-end brands, including Ferrari, BMWs, and Mercedes abandoned in thousands. What a pity.
The main reason that leads to this is the Sharia law that states that if anyone doesn’t pay the car payments, then they will be sent to prison. Hence people prefer to flee than to serve jail time.
