My next travel destination has to be to Dubai; if I put it off any longer, I don’t think I’ll be able to afford traveling within the city (thanks to the Dubai Luxury Metro System) let alone the plane ticket to get there. Not to mention all development that will most likely occur with the launch of this cutting-edge transit system, which is sure to increase costs everywhere.

Touting some of the most advanced additions, the Dubai Luxury Metro System cost double what developers expected, over $7.64 billion. Money well spent, it paid for luxury compartments, internet access—oh, and the longest automated system in the world.
