      Totally Agree! Dubai is truly a work of art. Contrary to popular belief, Dubai is not as expensive as people make it out to be, there are a lot of deals and discounts for Dubai that makes it affordable. While you won’t have enough money now to live there, as a short term goal, you should definitely visit there while you can. Trust me, you will not regret it! It’s an experience that you’ll be talking about for years to come.
