Hotel Babel – Dubai 2013

What was the linguistic landscape of hotels in Dubai in 2013? I was curious, so I looked at 200 out of the 600 hotels operating in the city. Here are six ways of looking at the thirty languages that I found.

I think of this infographic as a testament to the beautiful diversity of the people of Dubai. And please keep in mind, the languages below are not all there is – merely the ones you can find in the front of the house.

Please share this graphic if you enjoy it.
