Traveling to Dubai
Dubai, the financial center of the United Arab Emirates and known throughout the world because of its luxury hotels, its stunning buildings and amazing skyline. It is a gem for architects and hosts some of the most impressive buildings in the world. The Burj Dubai or Dubai Tower is going to be 818 meters tall and will be the number one tallest manmade skyscraper in the world. Another well known project is the world's islands creations in front of the coast and hotels such as Dubai Palm Island. There are manmade surfing opportunities, pretty sandy beaches and even scuba diving is possible slightly offshore.
Take a visit to Jumeirah Mosque (Remember that Friday and Saturday are the busiest days for Muslims, so remember that things can get packed), or try skiing or sandboarding on some of its desert's slopes, splash with water in the Wild Wadi Water Park, smell its rich sheikh history in the Bur Dubai quarter or pay a visit to Saaed Al Maktoum House. Dubai is fast becoming a prominent place where all resorts and hotels of some status must have a building for their guests. Tourism is on the rise, luxury shopping centers pop up in no time and beach tourism is business as never before. Dubai holidays are without doubt attracting people all over the world and not without reason.
Nearby emirates such as Abu Dhabi are well woth a visit and even the Musandam peninsula of Oman and Musqat are within a day's reach. Dibba, Khor Fakkan and Fujeirah are places not many visitors have heard of but they actually offer green villages and lush mountain scapes; a place to behold.
