A glamorous and somewhat over-the-top experience awaits you in Dubai.
The Middle East’s shopping mecca issues a siren call to all those who desire some retail therapy. There’s even a Dubai Shopping Festival each year, to underscore the glitzy lure of this unapologetically materialistic destination.
With innumerable shopping malls, glitzy hotels, a dazzling array of dining options and myriad hip clubs and bars, it’s a jet-setter’s dream. It certainly lives up to its promise that Dubai is like no other city on earth.
However, under its ostentatious surface, there is another more cultural Dubai to discover. Head to the Heritage Village during Ramadan and you’ll witness a different Dubai, where local Emiratis take joy in their songs, dances, and traditions. Spend a few fascinating hours by the creek, watching the dhow (traditional wooden boat) traffic and the abras weave along the waterway. Walk the streets of the tranquil, restored Bastakia area or take a stroll through multicultural Karama or Satwa. You’ll find this Dubai a million miles removed from the commercial passion of the five-star hotels.
Whatever aspect you prefer, Dubai is a fascinating experience that has to be seen to be believed. From in-door snow skiing to desert safaris, there is an endless variety of experiences you can have. Let Cayman Travel take you to this city of superlatives. For the fastest, biggest, tallest and largest of everything, Dubai is the destination.
