What can be said about Dubai that hasn’t already been said? The city is world famous for being one of the most luxurious hubs of excitement and opportunity. Having been a favourite spot for celebrities for years, Dubai has attracted travellers and residents alike with its unique brand of deluxe hospitality and astonishing wonders. Having been a desert wasteland up till just a few decades ago, Dubai has evolved into one of the richest, most modern cities of the world, proving itself the land of unlimited potential.
Dubai is the perfect example of a miniature global village, boasting one of the most diverse populations you could ever come across. This diversity is apparent in the city’s culinary experiences, landscapes, architecture, music, languages, dressing and art performances. Whilst essentially rooted in Islamic beliefs and traditions, Dubai is largely a warm and open society which welcomes all newcomers to connect with its myriad people and experiences.
With its hundreds of gleaming sky scrapers piercing the skies, Dubai is truly a tribute to modern architecture. Famous landmarks such as the Burj Khalifa, the Burj Al Arab, the Palm Island, and many others are worth witnessing first hand. You will be amazed at the extraordinary sights that simply a cityscape can offer in Dubai. From water dances to lights glittering up and down the tallest building in the world, the city sights will leave you speechless.
Shopping in Dubai is unlike shopping anywhere else. Here, it is a leisure activity that anyone could do all day, every day. The malls of Dubai are a sight to behold, both visually and in terms of the diverse range of shopping experiences they promise. Stop at Ibn-Batuta Mall to view extraordinary sculptures, or head to the enormous Dubai Mall, where it’s easy to lose track of time and yourself. The Jumeirah strip boasts a never-ending line of the world’s most coveted designer stores, and the gold souk will enchant you. Or, visit the Emirates Mall, just in case you were in the mood to ski, as it houses an indoor ski resort for those who long for a winter wonderland.
As exciting as the city experience is, there’s more to Dubai than great architecture and ultimate shopping experiences. Don’t forget that this miraculous city sits upon a former desert, and the desert beckons you to take a safari jeep up and down its sand dunes in a wild, wild ride, ending in an exotic night of belly dancing, camel-riding, Turkish light shows, fire-eaters and Arabic cuisine. Or, take a speed boat down the Marina and race with the wind as you rush across the Jumeirah.
Die hard foodies will delight to behold the extensive range of culinary pleasures that Dubai offers. There’s no set of taste buds that Dubai can’t satisfy. With world renowned hotels competing to be the most luxurious and hospitable, you’re sure to receive the royal treatment no matter where you’re staying. It’s hard not to admire Dubai and its un-quenching ambition to be a city of dreams and miracles.
