I've known Dubai as a great country that provides good job for many asian countries and the salary is real good instead of staying with other asian countries. Well I have my aunt working out there and probably she really love staying and never heard any complain regarding to Dubai country.

Well I really think that people dislike what Dubai represents, rather than what the city is like in reality.

And people who are rubbing their hands together with glee without having actually visited Dubai itself should really consider whether they have anything valuable to say about the issue at all.

The writer of the article was there and interviewed several people who were also there.

I never heard anything bad from any people who was in Dubai.

If something is published on internet; doesn't mean it's a truth. Spreading lie on internet is very easy.

Personally I believe that Dubai is a great country, malls are everywhere people are good too especially to the tourists. My friend's father is working there and I never heard any complain from him while working in Dubai...

Why this Johann Hari hasn't interviewed the people who are happy with their work and life over there? I am sure that the article could become longer.

I think that is why he entitled his article The dark side of Dubai. That answer your question. If he ever interviewed those people who are happy and satisfied staying in dubai then the title of his article would have been the Bright Side of Dubai.

We have to keep in mind that in every country there's a Dark and a Bright side.

I guess you didn't actually read the article, or you would know that he did interview people who are happy in Dubai.

No, but getting that article published in one of England's most respected newspapers generally means that it can be relied on to be fairly well fact checked.

I find it hard to believe but I think these things are not far from possibly happening not only in Dubai but also in other countries as well.

The article wasn't about the western expats or Emiratis who you hear about all the time. It focused on the indentured underclass who are forgotten.

Sure it's a great country for a lot of people, but it's a hell hole for everyone else. Is all that comfort and luxury really worth abusing the poor?

That's right, but if only everyone knew about it - then I guess change would really come in that country(I hope it would be for the best).

I have seen happy people and have heard them saying how good Dubai is, how I wish that the goverment would be transparent to what their country is going into. Giving importance to people, rich or poor, expats or emiratis as long as the change of the country gives a positive effects to every one and not to someone because they are rich or well known...
