Another sentence to ponder

New Geography:
Dubai attracts only 1/10th of tourism of Las Vegas, while having more than one-half the hotel rooms.

One wonders,though, how many tourists Las Vegas would attract if it didn't offer gambling?

perhaps there's a lot more business-travel to dubai? perhaps more people use those hotel rooms for staff accommodation (temporary or permanent)? perhaps dubai hotel rooms are used by sharjah/abu dhabi visitors as well? perhaps a lot of the hotel rooms are used for people who are in transit at DXB (not technically tourists)? perhaps there's something off about the statistics, either inaccurate hotel room numbers or tourist numbers?

with all the possibilities, that sentence isn't really worth pondering
