I was in Hong Kong for most of last week. Work and got to see several old mates who used to live in Dubai.

If we were in HK we'd be whinging about the following:

Pollution

Heavy traffic

Pollution

Crowds everywhere so thick you can barely move.

Pollution

Jam packed metro and busses (yes even bankers in HK take public transportation)

Pollution

Local restaurants with no English menus

Pollution

The Chinese

Pollution

Humidity year round

Pollution

Expensive alcohol

Pollution

Shops with unreliable stock. No proper supermarkets.

Pollution

High cost of housing

Pollution

Paying a fortune for a 500 square foot two bedroom flat

Pollution

Expensive schooling

Pollution

Oh, did I mention the pollution?

Makes me lucky to be in Dubai.

Hmm....I'd still take Hong Kong. The grass is definitely greener over there! What an amazing city and the night life puts Dubai to pure shame. Unless you're a banker with a fetish for killing prostitutes...
