The president and CEO of Resonance Consultancy Chris Fair noted that Dubai has witnessed a “torrent of city-building” over the past 24 months. The report praised Dubai as an exotic combination of exceptional experiences, Arabian heritage and luxury shopping.

Doha ranked 27 followed by Abu Dhabi. According to the prosperity index, Qatar’s capital ranked number one, while the UAE’s capital came in fifth. The world’s largest, tallest, and most expensive things are in Dubai, but Abu Dhabi is quietly focusing on heritage and cultural diversity. Artists and creators are invited for residencies and multiple-show dates, according to the report.
