Dubai is part of the United Arab Emirates, situated on the coast of the Persian Gulf neighbouring Abu Dhabi and Oman.
The most 'western' country of the UEA. The Emir rules absolutely, yet the 'feel' to a visitor is that of a wealthy & highly developed society. A favourite destination for property investment Dubai developments. The local population relies heavily on 'imported' labour in all walks of life, who are well rewarded for their labour, but have no legal status in the country and have to surrender their passports on taking up a paid job.
Take an evening Dhow dinner cruise along the Creek for a relaxing atmosphere and stunning views. Go Dune Bashing in the desert on an organized jeep safari and even see if you can stay overnight for a magical experience. And of course shop, shop, shop, 'til you drop! Dubai is a legend when it comes to shopping, especially for gold in the Dubai Gold Souks where it is considerably cheaper than at home or take lunch at the spectacular Burj al Arab Hotel.
With a choice of tour operators Dubai luxury holidays are easy to find although holiday packages are worth taking. A really interesting mixture of traditional and ultra modern Arab life-style opens up to the visitor. There are some fabulous mirrored buildings in the city overlooking the Creek. A great place to see sunset from!
