Dubai Orientation


The second largest of the seven emirates that form the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is a superb example of a New Economy business hub that has evolved on the solid foundations of a rich cultural heritage. Once a city of seafarers and merchants, Dubai is today recognized as an international trading port. While rapid sophistication of the 21st century has changed the face of Dubai from timeless deserts to a thriving economy with strengths in trade, services, manufacturing and technology, Dubai maintains a fine balance of cultural legacy and a modern metropolis.

The city offers a lively experience for visitors with a wide variety of preferences. Hi tech gadget shopping in Mega Malls or shopping for the spices & incenses in the narrow Souk, crossing the creek in a rickety old wooden Abra (water taxi) or doing adrenalin flips in power boats or jet skis. Cutting across the sands in a 4x4 or concurring the dunes on a camel back, savoring the fine dining cuisine from around the world or experiencing Bedouin hospitality in an encampment. Dancing the night away in a high energy night-club or sitting back and enjoying the shivers of an exotic belly dancer. Getting a toasty tan on an unspoiled beach or practicing your golf swing in the Tiger's path .. you name it, we've got it.

Dubai Land Mark

Dubai is to the Middle East what Hong Kong is to Asia; a capitalist jewel buzzing with activity. Most visitors to the region stop here for at least a day to browse the shops, eat in the restaurants and soak up the atmosphere of a city oozing wealth and a general air of self-satisfied confidence. Split into two by a long creek, a water taxi is an ideal starting point for orientation purposes and an opportunity to admire the modern palatial architecture, the hallmark of a successful Arab state. There isn't much here that isn't glistening new. Even the traditional souks that attract thousands of visitors each year are packed with up to the minute gadgets and the latest designer wear.
