DUBAI HOLIDAYS > EMIRATES
Dubai is one of the fastest growing cities in the Middle East.
Dubai is renowned for it's glorious sandy beaches, magnificent shopping malls and range of leisure activities.
Just 100 years ago, Dubai was a tranquil trading town situated on the banks of the Creek, edged by coral and gypsum huts. Today, the city of Dubai is a sprawling metropolis of glass and steel
skyscrapers, with a skyline to rival that of Manhattan. Dubai is actually two towns joined by the Creek, with the district of Bur Dubai to the south and Deira to the north. Further south, but now
adjoining the city, the Jumeirah Beach area offers modem business parks and some of the finest hotels in the world, most of which overlook the magnificent beach. For such a small city, Dubai has a
surprising and varied array of sights and attractions.
