Dubai City Guide
In less than 25 years, Dubai has skyrocketed; it has developed from an unknown fishing village into one of the most dynamic and exciting cities on earth. The city has grown at a dizzying pace: 40 years ago, there were no high-rises. Today, there are gigantic man-made islands in the shape of palm trees that are visible from space; you'll even find the first seven-star hotel and the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa . Discover this great Arab metropolis, where one lives according to the motto "if you can dream it, we can build it." Dubai is one of the seven United Arab Emirates (UAE), and is controlled by an ambitious royal dynasty. Dubai owes its phenomenal growth to the vision of this family. With the discovery of oil reserves in the 1960’s, this simple fishing village soon become a powerful financial centre and a major transportation hub in the region. When the oil began to flow less freely, the city focused on tourism and banking.
Dubai is now a paradise for shoppers. Look for bargains in the dazzling glare of the Gold Souk, or shop till you drop in the Dubai Mall, one of the largest malls in the world. Here you will find more than 1,000 stores, an aquarium and an indoor theme park.
Dubai offers attractions that stand in stark contrast to the arid environment. Admire the world's largest dancing fountain or grab your skis and hit the slopes on real snow at Ski Dubai.
Of course, Dubai has more to offer than just luxury created by man. Relax on the beautiful beaches, explore the nature of the wetlands and discover the magical desert environment in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve.
Due to the fantastic climate throughout the year Dubai is a great destination. If you don’t like temperatures above 40 degrees, it is best to visit Dubai during the winter and spring months.
Dubai has excellent public transport with more than 50 bus routes, water taxis and a metro system. For those who prefer to drive, the car rental companies have a generous offer. Book a trip to Dubai with Expedia today!
