Las Vegas, Dubai Style

By Linda Tancs

Is there room in the world for another Strip (without the gambling)?  Dubai’s Bawadi is developing a $100 billion strip of themed resorts (think Epcot), including the world’s largest hotel.  The resorts characterizing the Americas will be the Latino Resort representing Latino culture, America Hotel and Resort (celebrating North American and South American cultures) and Wild Wild West (think John Wayne).  Other resorts will represent Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.   A Universal site will provide general entertainment.  Sounds more like a World’s Fair than a Vegas-like showplace.  Then again, maybe that’s the point.
