The Essential

On the shores of the Persian Gulf between Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, Dubai is one of the world’s premium luxury tourism destinations and a magnificent playground for bold architects.
It is well-nigh impossible not to be bowled over by the gargantuan proportions of its architecture ranging from the lavish Burj Al Arab Hotel built in the sea and Burj Khalifa, the highest skyscraper in the world to the impressive Dubai Marina district and the amazing artificial island of Palm Jumeirah
Fans of thrills and adventure will head to the water slides of Aquaventure Waterpark or out to the Mall of Emirates to go skiing in the desert.
History and tradition have not however been forgotten, illustrated by Dubai Museum, characteristic souks, exciting camel races and the traditional art of falconry. Dubai, a successful marriage between past, present and future!
