No matter what kind of traveler you are, because this city is able to conquer both those looking for a cultural holiday with a pinch of adventure, and those who aspire to a holiday where relaxation, comfort, modernity and fun dominate.
Dubai is situated on the Persian Gulf coast of the United Arab Emirates and is roughly at sea level (16 m or 52 ft above). The emirate of Dubai shares borders with Abu Dhabi in the south, Sharjah in the northeast, and the Sultanate of Oman in the southeast.
Established in the 18th century as a small fishing village, the city grew rapidly in the early 21st century into a cosmopolitan metropolis with a focus on tourism and hospitality. In the early 19th century, the Al Abu Falasa dynasty of the Bani Yas tribe established Dubai, which remained a dependent of Abu Dhabi until 1833.
In Dubai there are a lot of buildings and structures of various architectural styles. Many modern interpretations of Islamic architecture can be found here, due to a boom in construction and architectural innovation in the Arab World in general, and in Dubai in particular, supported not only by top Arab or international architectural and engineering design firms such as Al Hashemi and Aedas, but also by top firms of New York and Chicago. As a result of this boom, modern Islamic – and world – architecture has literally been taken to new levels in skyscraper building design and technology. Dubai is known for its skyscrapers that soar in the skies and are among the tallest buildings in the world. Just think of the Burj Khalifa skyscraper which became part of the Guinness World Records as the tallest building in the world.
The dress code is never compulsory and many people wear western or other eastern clothing without any problems, but prohibitions on wearing “indecent clothing” or revealing too much skin are aspects of the UAE to which Dubai’s visitors are expected to conform, and are encoded in Dubai’s criminal law. You don’t have to hide your figure, as you do in Iran or Saudi Arabia, and there is no law requiring you to cover your hair with a scarf (unless you are entering a mosque).
