Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates, located in the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula on the coast of the Persian Gulf. It is famous for its impressive sights and attractions, such as the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, or the shopping malls that feature their own aquariums and indoor ski slopes.This cosmopolitan city offers state-of-the art facilities and is extremely tourist- and business-friendly. The vast range of shopping experiences are almost infinite and there is a great blend between traditional Arabic culture and modern western lifestyle. It is also certainly a place of contrast: you can visit the old town and explore the souks (markets) and then go shopping at some of the world’s most famous designer stores.
Dubai Airport is a hub for international flights and is well-prepared to receive a very high number of travellers. The public transport system is outstanding, with modern facilities and inexpensive rates. The city is also a very safe place, with virtually no crime at all.
