The second largest (3,900 klms) of the 7 emirates which make up the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is located on the southern shore of the Arabian Gulf. From the timeless tranquillity of the desert to the lively bustle of the souk, Dubai offers a kaleidoscope of attractions for visitors.
During your stay in Dubai you could take a short trek in the desert on a camel, go sand skiing or even snow skiing! You can play golf on a course of international standing, enjoy the world’s best duty free shopping or bargain for gold jewellery at the world biggest gold ‘souk’ (market). Outside the city itself, the emirate is sparsely inhabited and characterised by desert vegetation. Dubai is both a dynamic international business centre and a laid back tourist escape; a city where the sophistication of the 21st century walks hand in hand with the simplicity of a by- gone era.
