INSIDE Dubai fans said they would rather vacation in Slough after the show revealed “real” horrible conditions.
Viewers took to Twitter in droves to complain about the working conditions and lifestyle shown in the BBC2 documentary about the super-rich in the Middle East.
Fans weren’t impressed with conditions after watching Inside Dubai: Playground of the Rich and poked fun at real estate agents comparing them to The Office’s David Brent, as well as the obscene levels of glut on display.
One tweeted: “Honestly, I’d rather go on vacation to Slough.”
Another said, “What an enlightening show. I really don’t think I’m going there anytime soon. It doesn’t appeal to me one bit.”
A third weighed in on a luxury property that had just been sold: “Am I missing something? Incredible views? It’s a high-rise monstrosity.”
A fourth said: “That office really looks like a cheap call center in Slough. Totally heartless #InsideDubai.”
A fifth said: “There is literally nothing in Dubai that could tempt me to visit.”
Another fan said, “It’s the place everyone wants to be. Yeah sure, but not me.”
Meanwhile, during the episode, fans were furious after Brit Mark decided to leave his family in the UK to accept a job offer in Dubai.
She made the harrowing decision after fighting back tears while speaking to her children on a video call.
One said, “Cash or my kids? Poor kids.”
Another said, “Oh no, they sold him the dream. I’m not sure it ends well.”
A third chimed in: “So Mark’s chosen money instead of being a father present in his children’s lives. Stella prioritizes there, buddy.”
Meanwhile, a fan sympathized with him, saying, “I can’t blame Mark for making the decision to support his family.”
