I haven't visited Dubai in the last month and half or so, but have been hearing from partners and sources that its getting pretty bad... I always like to observe the resident/ local population to get a feel of how the economy is doing... For those in Dubai, How bad is it really?? Are the restaurants still brimming with people ??? Nightclubs and Mujras still packed every night (Dubai Marine, JBR, Buddah Bar etc.)??? Shopping Malls still full (City Center, MOE etc.)??, locals still buying stuff??? How about Carefour is it still rammed with people speaking 500 different types of languages?? New Years parties sold out??? Coffee Shops still full? With people buzzing about real estate? Let me know your thoughts... hows the scene and how bad/ good is it??
