28 Photos Of Everyday Things You’ll Only See In Dubai

Dubai has become a playground for the affluent with the city boasting an outlandish amount of luxury and extravagance. Oil revenue spurred the development of Dubai, but now the city’s main revenues come from:

  • Financial services,
  • Real estate,
  • Tourism,
  • Aviation.

With a city that embraces excess like no other, the lifestyles of the people of Dubai are unlike anything most of us have or ever will see.

Here are 28 photos of everyday things you’ll only see in Dubai. 

1. Luxury car enthusiasts don’t need to go to a car show to see some top tier vehicles. Dubai traffic jams are full of luxury cars, and they certainly make traveling bumper to bumper more extravagant.
