    Dubai Travel Guide

Often referred to as the gateway to the Middle East, the City of Merchants and the City of Gold to name just a few… Through sheer determination and unrivaled innovation, Dubai has transformed itself into the region’s leading travel destination. Once a quiet coastal settlement used as a base for trade, fishing, pearling and shipping.

Today, the Emirate has become famous for its avant-garde architecture where it boasts the tallest man-made structure in the world- Burj Khalifa, the world’s largest mall- The Dubai Mall, the iconic Burj Al Arab- renowned as the world’s only seven-star hotel as well as the spectacular man-made Palm Islands. While its list of achievements are impressive, at the heart of this modern metropolis lies the unwavering Arabian traditions of hospitality and generosity. Driven by genuine warmth and the friendliness of the local people, visitors rate Dubai as one of the top holiday destinations. Whether the reasons for travel are cultural, adventurous, leisure, shopping or even business meetings, events and conventions- Dubai has every tourism niche covered.
