Dreaming Like Crazy in Dubai

Dreaming Like Crazy in Dubai

A huge sandpit – that is what Dubai and its environs used to be like, but then the Arabs struck oil and the madness began. Now no dream is too grand not to come true in Dubai.

The little emirate with its population of 1.4 million is currently undergoing unprecedented growth. 30 percent of the world’s cranes are at work there now, and they are building more magnificently than anywhere on the planet: hotels of pure gold, the tallest tower in the world, artificial islands in the Persian Gulf and even skiing facilities. In a few years Dubai will have more than four million inhabitants and be the Manhattan of the Middle East.

This documentary provides a fascinating tour of Dubai in which dreams and inconceivable wealth are everyday life and where all that glisters IS in fact gold.
