Both a city and a state, Dubai is located in the United Arab Emirates on the north-eastern coast. Along with its state of the art hotels, commercial buildings and leisure facilities, Dubai is probably best known for the numerous designer shops that furnish its streets. Even if you’re not planning to buy, a stroll around one of the opulent air-conditioned malls, like the Dubai Mall, is an impressive experience. As well as stores, you’ll find indoor ice rinks, restaurants, and eye-popping virtual reality attractions. Out on the streets, visit a souk for an entirely different retail experience, their silks and gold jewelry are available at a bargain price and haggling is part of the ritual.
