The Area: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Owing to half a century of astonishingly rapid development, the United Arab Emirates has placed its stamp upon the world as a city with its own unique and visionary brand of modernity. The nation’s deep, rich history is complemented by its recent burst of economic activity and urban ingenuity, resulting in a country that is truly unlike any other.
An ancient Middle Eastern capital perched on the edge of the desert, Dubai combines atmospheric old-world markets and beautiful historic buildings with immense skyscrapers, luxury resorts and glamorous modern shopping malls. Regarded as one of the world’s top luxury destinations, Dubai is a thriving modern metropolis rich in colour and life; a true feast for the senses.
Take an awe-inspiring safari into the vast open space and sculptural sand dunes of the desert; fly on a hot air balloon ride to marvel at the city’s astonishing architecture; soak up some rays on a pristine beach fringed with crystal blue water; or journey back in time through the narrow winding lanes and cool stone walls of the old Bastakia Quarter, stopping to pick up a magic carpet at the glorious textile souk.
