Bigger, faster, taller; these three words describe the United Arab Emirates’ fastest growing tourist destination: Dubai. The UAE has outdone itself transforming Dubai into a global hub of trade and commerce. Dubai’s list of attractions for tourists is unending, with the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, as its figurehead. Visit its 142nd-floor outdoor observation deck for a bird's-eye view of the city and sea, including some of the manmade luxury islands. Dubai primarily caters to a wealthier clientele, with some of the finest shopping and dining in the world as well as one of the world's only seven-star hotels. However, budget travelers need not fret; Citymax hotels have recently opened their doors, and street vendors offer ... Read more
plenty of inexpensive dining and shopping options. Entertainment selections are varied, including Dubai’s white sand beaches on the Arabian Gulf, desert safaris, hot-air balloon rides, water parks and the largest indoor ski slope in the world.
Dubai has two seasons: hot and unbearably hot. Not surprisingly, most of the crowds hit the idyllic Persian Gulf beaches from October to April when the temperatures are the least suffocating. You will pay more for hotels (although only slightly -- they are pretty expensive all year) and need to book well in advance during this time, but it’s worth it. The alternative is coming between May and September when humidity peaks at 95%, temperatures stay above 100°F (38°C) for days on end, and spending much time outside means risking a heat stroke. There's a clear winner for seasons here.

Dubai is an impresive, modern city in the middle of the desert. It's full of modern, glittery arhitecture, it's town full of wonders, you can see so many unbelievable, fascinating things that you can't see anywhere else in the world.

In Dubai no one considerations what you do in your lodging room, just don't get too boisterous and get yourself answered to the police by irritated neighbors.

The kingdom of fake, new money and hypocrisy. Even the idea to do skiing in a mall in the middle of the desert is against nature...

Over the top! Bigger than life! Think New York and Las Vegas combined and on steroids! We loved it here! The modern architecture is incredible. Although one is most impressed by the high-end parts of the city, we also visited what remains of old Dubai (before the oil boom changed the area from a small fishing and pearl diving town to a prosperous major city). Dubai is very cosmopolitan, with many of its residents coming from other countries to work in hotels and in construction or as executives with financial and oil companies.

I moved here from Mumbai 3yrs ago and instantly fell in love with this place. I mean where else can you find a ski slope in the dessert or the tallest building in the world or manmade palm shaped islands or food from all over the world or ladies nights every night or the biggest and longest shopping malls? And as I always say...in dubai shopping is my cardio.
