Dubai


Once a small fishing village, Dubai has emerged as a truly global city and a business hub of the Gulf region.  The second largest of the seven United Arab Emirates, it has the biggest population at over 2.1 million. The city is famed for its extravagant constructions, lavish shopping opportunities and high standard of living.

More tolerant than much of the Middle East, Dubai allows non-Muslim visitors to enjoy alcohol and nightlife in its clubs and hotels.
