Dubai conjures up images of gleaming skyscrapers set against the backdrop of the vast Arabian Desert and glistening sea.

See Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, set alongside ancient mosques. Bargain for gold, spices and handicrafts at the atmospheric “suqs” markets. Our Arabian adventure continues when we ride nature’s roller coaster— jeeps across the dunes. Overnight in the desert, ride camels, go sand surfing, then feast under the stars with traditional belly dancing. Find out for yourself why Dubai is one of the world’s most intriguing destinations.

Dubai is one of the seven Emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates but seems rather like an independent city-state. It has developed at a fast pace and is today the most modern and progressive Emirate in the UAE.

Visit this fabulous desert city with an amazing infrastructure and relatively liberal policies. Dubai offers shopping, partying, sunbathing, fine dining, sporting events and more. Discover Dubai's history with a visit to Bur Dubai or climb the world's tallest building - Burj Khalifa.
