Travel Guide Dubai

Middle East.

What’s the one thing that you think if when you picture the Middle East?

Well, for me I think of Dubai and it’s dates!

Middle East is the lands around southern and eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea. It encompasses the states of Turkey, Cyprus, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Egypt, and various other states and territories of Arabia.

Speaking of Dubai, it is located in the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula on the coast of the Persian Gulf. It aims to be the business hub of the Western Asia.

One of the world’s fastest growing economies, Dubai is also known as the City of Gold since most if its trade is based on gold. Apart from excelling in gold trade, oil refineries of the region are also a leading industry trait.

In order to diversify the income generation tourism industry is also flourishing. The lure for tourists in Dubai is based mainly on shopping and thus it is also known as the ‘Shopping Capital of the Middle East’ but is also attracted due to the ancient and modern heritage.

The rich architectural styles and structures of Dubai are truly commendable. To credit this claim, The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world. Inspired by the structure of the desert flower, it was constructed by more than 30 companies with hundreds of workers. The world’s only 7-star hotel, Burj Al Arab, a luxury hotel is also a part of Dubai’s architecture.

Dubai is ruled majorly by Islamic culture and practices. It’s influence is seen not only in the architectural designs but also in its music, attire, cuisine and lifestyle.

Talking of lifestyle, Dubai is also known for its nightlife. Clubs and bars are found mostly in hotels and there’s bright and color all throughout.

Not just structures, economy and culture, but Arabic cuisine is also very popular and is available everywhere. The inaugural Dubai Food Festival was held between 21st February and 15th March in 2014. This event enhanced and celebrated Dubai’s position as the gastronomic capital of the region.

With strict laws, Dubai is in fact one of the safest Middle Eastern countries for tourists. It has the lowest crime rates and public transports are nominated against any imposters.

Dubai has overcome challenges and developed into a sustaining country after colonialism. A huge threshold to the economy in way of tourism and foreign investment, Dubai caters to its people in varied manners. There are no security issues and it is governed by a stable and modern government.
