This oasis in the desert is a fascinating place to say the least. There's the biggest and tallest of almost everything, with new accolades being added regularly.
Dubai offers some of the best world class attractions. There are a variety of theme parks ranging from kid-friendly Legoland to more thrill-seeking Ferrari World in neighbouring Abu Dhabi. For those with a taste for history and art, there are enough museums to keep you busy for some time.
Aside from these attractions, be sure to try something uniquely Dubai like the Desert Safari, taking a ride on an abra across the Dubai Creek, visiting a local mosque or riding a camel on the beach.
We can't talk about Dubai without talking shopping. It's heaven for those with money to spend. They say if you don't find it here, you won't find it anywhere!
