Completely different places and experiences. Costs about the same, unless you want to stay in 5* properties when Dubai is cost more especially in the cooler months.

the deserts in Dubai are beautiful and if you are a foodie, all the big western brand names are there and are halal. but i found it pricey and quite boring, honestly. Downtown looked like a giant construction site.

If it is around Christmas and New Year, accommodation will be expensive wherever you go. December is peak tourist season in Dubai. Weather-wise, Singapore is more rainy due to the North East monsoon.

Places are spread out in Dubai so it is not as easy to walk. Singapore is more compact and culturally diverse. Do you have special dietary requirements?

Not even close. Singapore has diverse cultures and food and is a great microcosm of city with lush tropics.
