Dubai has become a part of the world that is not only associated with exotic Arabian landscapes, but also with innovative design and lavish establishments. It offers those visiting the most luxurious of getaways, with sights that range from the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, to astonishing man made islands that have been shaped to actually resemble the world.
Everything in the United Arab Emirates is grand and inspiring, though at the heart of such dazzling developments is still the traditional spirit of Dubai, with places such as the historical Grand Mosque releasing a peaceful aura amongst the charisma of such a spectacular city skyline.
The contrast between areas like The Palm Islands and Old Dubai offers a strange experience for visitors, in that they can seemingly move back and forth in time, browsing the Bastakiya Quaters and souks one minute then the huge, glossy Dubai Mall, with its diverse range of shops and eateries.
The Dubai Creek is where these two parts of the city meet, and therefore is a beautiful spot for relaxing in limbo of Dubai’s past and the present, taking a late night Dhow Ride on waters bathed in skyscraper light and taking in the fragrant smells of nearby bustling markets.
Whether you’re in search of some history, unspoilt beaches, shops selling everything from spices to jewellery and fabrics, world class restaurants or scenery that will amaze you at every turn, you’ll find it all and much more in this exciting and exuberant part of the world.
