City of Gold
Essentially a desert city with a stunningly advanced urban infrastructure, Emirate of Dubai is one of the seven United Arab Emirates. Home to many different cultures from around the world, Dubai resembles a city-state boasting remarkably diverse culinary and shopping scenes. Its unique position on the Persian Gulf means you can combine both coastal attractions and sophisticated urban delights. Dubai tourism thrives largely thanks to a progressive atmosphere, making it easy for tourists to experience all this city has to offer. Sightseeing in Dubai is hassle-free thanks to what is arguably the best public transport system in the Middle East. Start with Bastakiya district, the last pocket of "Old Dubai" and home to many buildings designed in the traditional style. Plan your holiday in Emirate of Dubai and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our United Arab Emirates online tour itinerary maker.
