Located on the sandy southeast coast of the Gulf, Dubai defies imagination.
With its towering skyscrapers, endless white sand beaches and storied history, Dubai is a place where past and future meet today.
If you can picture opulent palaces, historic wind towers, ancient open-air markets (souqs), mosques, museums, and forts – all bordered by the gulf on one side and the Arabian Desert stretching out on all others – you will only just begin to scratch the surface of what makes Dubai one of the most visited cities in the world.
With just over two million people, Dubai is most populous city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). With over 200 nationalities represented, it’s one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, too.
Dubai’s sub-tropical climate attracts visitors with year-round vacation temperatures and some of the most impressive white sand beaches found anywhere on the planet.
Where else can you go deep sea fishing in the morning, shopping in one of 70 malls during the day, snow skiing in the afternoon (in one of those malls), and end your day enjoying one of the finest meals you’ve ever eaten.
This is Dubai. This is what has transformed this one-time centre of pearl diving into *the* travel destination for the rich, famous and adventurous from every corner of the earth.
Respected for being a hub of culture, innovation, business and architecture, Dubai is also known as the “shopping capital of the Middle East.” And for good reason. Dubai is becoming the preferred travel destination over the traditional shopping cities of New York, London and Paris.
But, throw out what you thought you knew about shopping because Dubai is redefining everything. With their massive aquariums, indoor ski slopes, and entertainment worthy of a multimillion dollar Las Vegas show, Dubai’s more than 70 malls and shopping centres, including the world’s largest (Dubai Mall), offer one-of-a-kind experiences … that you can live every day!
And, if you’re a foodie, watch out: Dubai offers unlimited options of the finest cuisines in the world.
So whether you want to spend hours exploring the serpentine streets of the old Bastakiya Quarter, take a dip in the warm waters of the Gulf, or get happily lost in an indoor mall, you will quickly discover that Dubai offers something for everyone, young and old.
Come and experience what Dubai has to offer you. When you touch the deep mysteries of this ancient place and treat yourself to its ultra-modern amenities, you will be changed forever.
