Dubai is a city in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline, in addition to ambitious development projects including man-made islands, world class luxury hotels, and some of the largest and extraordinarily modern shopping malls in the world. Dubai is also referred to as “the City of Gold” as the Gold Souk in Deira houses nearly 250 gold retail shops. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On man-made islands just offshore is Atlantis, the Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.
From architectural wonders like the Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab to stunning man-made islands like Palm Jumeirah and The World, there is loads to fascinate you in this city. There is a lot that you can do here as well – from adventure activities like hot-air ballooning, skydiving, thrilling rides at Ferrari World and desert safaris to shopping at state-of-the-art malls.

With a variety of restaurants, lounges and clubs, a night out in the town can be an exciting one. With something for everyone, Dubai is a great cosmopolitan holiday destination.
