Why You Should Visit Dubai
If there is one city in the Middle East that is purposely developed for mass tourism, it would be Dubai! The city prides itself on having the best and the grandest.
At the moment it is home to the tallest man-made structure in the world – the Burj Khalifa. This is the tower that made history; a magnificent engineering achievement that Dubai and the UAE can be rightfully proud of!
For engineering and architecture fans, the Burj up close is enough reason to visit this Arabian city.
But the tallest building in the world is not the only thing that Dubai offers. The city is a tourism powerhouse that is ideally suited for families. Some of its most appealing attractions include:
-the magnificent Atlantis Waterpark.
-the Indoor skiing center in the Mall of Emirates
-the indoor aquarium in Dubai Mall
-the plush Dubai Marina
Although surrounded by desert, Dubai sits on the coastline of the Persian Gulf. It has a few well-maintained public beaches where kids can freely run and roam around.
It is also one of the more best cities to visit to get a taste of Arabian history and lifestyle because of its tourist infrastructure and openness to foreign visits.
What Dubai is NOT as a Travel Destination
Dubai is not a ‘party’ destination no matter what people say. While it’s true that it has clubs and bars, all attached to the hotels, this is not the best city to get drunk and party.
Despite its modernity and openness, the city still follows rigid Islamic civil laws.
In my opinion, it is best not to drink alcohol while here. Besides the fact that alcohol is expensive, there is a higher risk of drinking it here.
In general, the city implement laws restricting actions and behaviors that are otherwise tolerated in other parts of the world.
If you like beer, swearing in public, wearing skimpy clothes and openly showing physical affection, and you’re not ready to let go of these things during a holiday; then Dubai is not for you.
Fortunately, many people in the world don’t mind these restrictions. And these are the type of tourists who are well-suited for Dubai.
