Dubai, as we know, has shot up over the last few decades, to a city of two million people, most migrant workers. Westerners move there for high-paying tax-free jobs, an affordable easy life for the family and, perhaps, to experience another culture.
New Zealand writer Joe Bennett spent some time in the city recently and wrote about it in his new book “Hello Dubai: Skiing, Sand and Shopping in the World’s Weirdest City“.
In today’s BTalk I ask Joe about the pros and cons of life in Dubai. Sure you can earn lots of money, but can your conscience cope with the visibility of the wealth divide? Is it a good place to go if you’ve got a family in tow?
