Dubai overview

Dubai Travel Guide
Dubai’s evolution from fishing village and stopover for Bedouin merchants and their camels to man made palm-tree shaped islands and the world’s tallest building is nothing short of incredible. The transformation has taken less than a century and just goes to show what finding a bit of oil can do. Up until recently, when the world was shown how fragile unbridled capitalism could be, it seemed there was no stopping Dubai. The Dubai Mall is the biggest shopping centre in the world. Bored of having the busiest airport in the Middle East Dubai decided that they would build a bigger one. Because of its international standing visitors will find the restrictions on life across the rest of the UAE tend not to apply in Dubai. Dubai intends to show the rest of the world what a city can be, and at the moment the world is watching.
