Dubai Beach, in the Marina area, perfectly encapsulates what Dubai is about. The beach, like most of Dubai, is populated overwhelmingly by people from other countries. Even though Dubai is Muslim, you’ll find plenty of scanty bikinis here. And always more construction.

You can throw a welcome mat down in front of your front door and call it a day, or do a bit more elaborate entrance feature, as seen on this temple in Chiang Mai, Thailand

How beautiful is your life? Do you notice the details? This is a door, and there are billions of doors in this world. But this door was hand-carved and painted in Ubud, Bali. And each one is a bit different. God is in the details.

As you travel across the US you’ll see thousands of hotels that can barely be distinguished from each other; the same on the outside, the same on the inside. Indonesia is not like that. Hotel Togu is on the tip of Lombok Island, Indonesia, and has a beautiful private beach.
Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.
