Travel to Dubai!

DubaiThis month’s destination for our travel blog is the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). In addition to being a shopping capital for the region, Dubai offers many things for adventure seekers and cultural enthusiasts.

Dubai offers opportunities found in countries with different climates. You can go on safari among the sand dunes or ski the indoor slopes at the Mall of the Emirates. If you seek water adventures, you can visit famed water parks, such as Wild Wadi and Atlantis, and don’t forget the scuba diving and yacht trips in the Arabian Gulf. Dubai is also fast becoming a skydiving destination.

Dubai is a mercantile city that takes pride in its heritage. Visitors can frequent one of the many markets that still have that old Dubai charm. But, what puts Dubai on the map is its urban development and the melting pot of expatriates who consider the UAE their home.

Between the largest shopping mall in the UAE and Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, is the allure of Dubai’s dancing fountains. You cannot count yourself as a visitor to Dubai until you’ve seen this spectacle. Visitors can also tour “At The Top” in Burj Khalifa, an observation terrace with vast panoramas of the Emirates.
