Dubai is the largest city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and attracts many visitors.

Sometimes called ‘the “Shopping Capital of the Middle East,” treats for shoppers include the world’s largest mall – the Dubai Mall - as well as traditional souk districts.

Dubai Information

While both are modern-looking, Middle East cities, Riyadh is located inland and has few tourists, giving it a very different feel from Dubai. Spending at least some time at the beach in Dubai is likely to be on many travelers’ lists. On the coast, you will find man-made islands forming luxurious beach resorts. There is plenty for families to do, including theme parks, such as LEGOLAND and Motiongate Dubai. For stunning views, head to the viewing platform of the Burj Khalifa, or go even higher for a meal at the Top Sky Lounge. If you don’t fancy heading up so high, admire the dramatic water fountain displays at its base.
