GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT DUBAI
Dubai is one of the ten most popular tourist destinations in the world and is considered one of the most modern and progressive cities in the Middle East and is also sometimes referred to as “City of Gold” due to historically being a hub for gold trade as well as the rapid transformation from a desert into a luxurious city.
Dubai is characterized by a vast landscape of desert which transforms into a futuristic style of skyscrapers along the coastline. Dubai is sometimes mistakenly thought of as a country, however it is an Emirate and is part of the Emirates. The city is symbolised by its skyscrapers, including the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, in addition to ambitious development projects including man-made islands, world class luxury hotels, and some of the largest and extraordinarily modern shopping malls in the world.
