Dubai (part of the United Arab Emirates or UAE) is the quintessential home of sand, sun and shopping. A century ago, it was a tranquil town whose coral-and-gypsum huts housed Bedouin traders and pearl divers.
Today the merchants have gone international and science-fiction skyscrapers stand alongside the mosques and wind towers of Old Dubai. Don your Gucci sunglasses - Dubai is rich, lavish and abfab.

DUBAI Tours, Travel and Activities
A relatively new tourist destination, Dubai has gained in popularity in the recent years. It is essentially a desert city with superb infrastructure, liberal policies and excellent tourist amenities. Just 5 hrs from Europe and 3 hrs from most parts of Asia, Dubai makes a great short break for shopping, partying, sunbathing, fine dining, sporting events, and even a few sinful pleasures.
It is a city of superlatives: for the fastest, biggest, tallest, largest and highest, Dubai is the destination. The weekly day off is on Friday.
