You don't want to get in a wreck in China either - I saw some great ones in Shanghai last yr.
I don't doubt that you get help from concierges - but this was going to be a one time trip - I can't expect them to help me out.
Since it doesn't look like it's going to happen, I'll probably go to the F1 race in Abu Dhabi (no problem getting tickets to F1 events) and just take a day trip to see Dubai.
