Dubai, the name speaks for itself. It is a city in the United Arab Emirates best known for lively nightlife, luxury shopping hubs and stunning ultra-modern architecture. Burj Khalifa, an 830m tall skyscraper with Dubai fountain at its foot boasting jets and lights choreographed to music.
Dubai is perhaps the best known of the 7 Emirates of the UAE. Famed for its wealth and opulence Dubai is undoubtedly the most glamorous destination in the Arabian peninsula. So what is the secret to Dubai's success, and what delights await the visitor? The wealth of Dubai mainly comes, not from oil,but from tourism and business. Trade has always been the very soul of Dubai, and this outward looking and enterprising spirit remain strong to this day. Hospitality to business and leisure visitors is critical to Dubai, and those who experience it will seldom be disappointed. The international flavor of Dubai cannot be understated. Just 17% of the population is Emerati, with the rest being composed largely of workers from around the globe. It is in fact Indians (and also others from the sub-continent) who make up the majority of the population in Dubai! With flights to India being the short hop that they are it is obvious why Dubai is such a popular choice for overseas workers and business people from there. Attractions in Dubai include the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building! Officially opened in January this tower truly scrapes the sky at an astonishing 828 metres tall. This building also sets several other records, including having the world's highest swimming pool on the 76th floor, and the worlds highest mosque of the 158th. Entertainment and hotels in Dubai are excellent. Particularly recommend are the Grand Hyatt, the Somerset Jadaf and Burj al Arab. The Burj al Arab is one of the most distinctive buildings on Dubai's remarkable skyline. Built to resemble a sail to reflect the areas seafaring heritage, this hotel stands on a specially constructed artificial island and has declared itself to be a 7 star establishment. Two things that Dubai is rightly famous for are beaches and shopping. The best beaches in Dubai are the Jebel Ali beach, Wollongong Beach and Jumeirah Beach. The Grand Mosque at Jumeirah is open to visitors and is a must for visitors wanting to connect to the history and culture of the UAE.
