Dubai - City in Review
If you're looking for a shopper's paradise, then Dubai is the city for you. The most modern emirate in the UAE, it has emerged from the desert and is now an increasingly popular tourist destination. People are attracted to Dubai for its excellent infrastructure, open-minded policies and outstanding tourist facilities. Renowned throughout the UAE as the place for socialising, beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants and sporting events many come to the city for a short break, and to shop of course. Ensure you visit Bastakiya District, a traditional area with charming art galleries and cafes, Dubai Museum tells about the social history of the Emirate, and experience a desert safari.
You can't come to Dubai and not visit a Souk, they are fascinating and exciting places for bargains and the perfect place to practice your haggling skills. Due to its location, Dubai offers numerous watersport opportunities on beautiful long, white beaches. It can get very hot in the city as it is bordered by the desert, the cooler weather is generally from the end of September to May.
