Over the years, Dubai has evolved into a travel and tourist hub in the Middle East. One of the 7 emirates in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Dubai is located to the south of Persian Gulf on the Arabian Peninsula.
With the largest population in the emirates, Dubai offers some astounding tourist attractions. Dubai is best visited between November and April where the weather is pleasant to its visitors. Ideally, you should also avoid the month of Ramadan, which is based on moon sighting. This is the month of fasting by Muslims and it is illegal to eat, drink or smoke in public from dawn to dusk. Dubai can be reached by major airlines all round the world and has a spectacular airport capable of hosting hordes of visitors.
As mentioned, Dubai has no lack of attractions for the visitors. Ranging from classy artificial islands to beaches, museums and theme parks, Dubai is also the proud owner of the world’s first 7-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab. When in Dubai, do be sure to visit the Creek and watch dow boats pass by. The Creek is regarded as an important historical venue in Dubai. If you have a long stay in Dubai, you could also enjoy hot air balloon rides, the pretty Jumeira Mosque, tourist villages and go away on a desert safari.
If you are one who is perpetually bitten by the shopping bug, you will be pleased to note that Dubai is an excellent destination for shopping. The low custom duties policy in Dubai makes shopping in Dubai a pleasurable experience. You can spend an entire day just walking through traditional souks, one after the other. Once you have had your fill of that, you can also have a look at the shopping malls which are of international standards.
So, if you are looking to have a magical experience, why not try out Dubai as your next holiday destination?
