Travel Guide

Dubai landscapeDubai is one of the seven emirates that make up the UAE, and is the most progressive and fast paced of them all. Having expanded rapidly in terms of its tourist and trade industries, the desert city of Dubai is a great place to mix business and pleasure amongst a stunning backdrop of sky scrapers.

For a city built in the desert, many of Dubai’s prime attractions are based around water. The pristine white sand beaches remain a constant favourite with tourists, and the Dubai Marina is a popular destination flanked by luxury hotels, restaurants, shops, and cafes. Visitors can also enjoy a cruise down the Dubai Creek, flanked on both sides by a number of ever popular souks which are definitely worth a visit for the atmosphere even if shopping is not on your to-do list. The Dubai Fountain is also a sight to see; at 270 metres in length and with a jet that sprays up to 150 metres high it is the world’s largest fountain, and a show is put on every evening to entertain the crowds.

Another “biggest” for Dubai is the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building at 828 metres high. Visitors can make their way to the observation deck which is situated roughly halfway up the building to admire the view, although given its popularity it is highly recommended that you book in advance. For the sporty visitor to Dubai there are numerous water sports to indulge in, as well as desert-defyingly green golf courses to tackle. An enormous indoor skiing centre provides real snow to help tourists escape from the heat, or for a more traditional Dubai sport camel races are held at the Al Marmoum Camel Racetrack.
