While all these are incredible photos, I think that Dubai should be on that list. From islands that look like palm trees and the globe, to an indoor ski resort (in the middle of the desert) it truely is a place of magic and no city is like it in the world.

Yeah, right and you are a sick person. First there is no culture in UAE that was made up. Second it a place where slavery is still practised. Third they pay sewage drivers (east india's) so little they do not dump the raw sewage at the process plants, instead they dump in the sea where it ends up on the man made islands and not only makes a unplease smell, people get sick just wading in the water. Arabs are the dirtiest people. And you can ask any Arab and confirm this, because it one two things, either Arabs are too poor to provide themselves with proper saniation or they like living in filth. So which is it? Go to any Arab city and you see two things slavery and filth.

While I agree, Dubai is a such a manufactured and man made place that it doesn't yet qualify to be in the top ten. I would say give it another 30 years to see what it becomes, whether it thrives and grows or declines.

However, I can not condone your reprehensible comments about "Arabs". Your comments are simply ignorant and racist. I'm not an Arab and neither have I been to Dubai but I can tell you that the "Middle Eastern" people that I have known which is a mix of Arabs as well as many other ethnic groups are actually quite clean. As far as the socio-economics that are at play in Dubai and it's labor force I don't doubt that there is plenty of labor abuse. Dubai is a place focused on money, designed and run by wealthy people who's only thought is to stay that way. But like I said, give it 30 years and you will see how time and history shapes it for the better or worse.

Another great addition would be Istanbul, Turkey. It has such a deep history that spans centuries and many different empires.
