Dubai is the City built for Tourism all around the year with excellent Hotels,
Resorts, Shopping and Sports facilities available throughout the year.
Dubai is a city of merchants, cultural crossroads, second largest of the seven
United Arab Emirates and probably the most well known. A country where the dust
of the desert is clearing to reveal the potential for one of the most significant
international cities of the 21st century.
Dubai's strategic location is also a key element in its success. The heart of
one of the worlds richest regions, Dubai is located midway between the Far East
and Europe. Over 120 shipping lines and 100 airlines connect to more than 140 global
destinations. The award winning Emirates airlines is ever expanding into new destinations.
Dubai is also one of the world's most vibrant tourist destinations. Attracted
to its year round sunshine and luxurious lifestyle, the number of tourists visiting
Dubai is expected to reach 15 million by the year 2010. With its lavish reputation,
Dubai continues to impress with world-class events such as the annual Dubai Shopping
Festival, GITEX (IT Exhibition), Dubai International Film Festival, Dubai World Cub
and Dubai Desert Classic golf tournament

Multi-national companies increasingly see Dubai as the obvious choice for establishing
operations in the Region. Proximity to the Indian subcontinent not only gives access
to a market of over 1 billion people but the ability to benefit from an increasingly
talented and competitive labor supply.
The pursuit of excellence has resulted in producing one of the best infrastructure
facilities in the world. State of the art telecommunications, reliable power, modern
schools and healthcare are all attracting an increasingly multi-cultural and highly
trained workforce. The Government projects a doubling of population by the year 2010.
Luxurious living, the finest cuisine and world class shopping are now the hallmarks
of Dubai enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.
There are many activities to pursue in Dubai, from parasailing, and sea tours, to
desert safaris and mountaineering. Sports fans can enjoy time on some of the best
golf courses in the world, before retiring to the beach to lay in the sand and absorb
breathtaking scenery. Parachuting over the desert, moto-crossing through challenging
trails, skydiving from 12,000 feet and sandsurfing on golden dunes, are some daring
feats that can be attempted in Dubai. On underwater adventures, scuba divers may
encounter sea creatures like dolphins, and tropical fish, while floating over awe
inspiring coral reefs.
Dining seaside while listening to the serene sounds of the ocean is a relaxing way
to spend the evening. International cuisine to suit every palate is offered at
Dubai's numerous restaurants. Shopping at Dubai's modern shopping malls, souks,
and individual retail stores is a great way to spend the day. Dubbed as the
"shopping capital of the Middle- East," Dubai's retailers offer a variety of
merchandise from high-fashion, gold and jewellery, carpets and handicrafts,
electronics and more. From pleasure and leisure activities for relaxed moments,
to high adrenaline sports for days that need a boost of excitement, Dubai has
the ultimate things to do list.
Visitors to Dubai cannot have the full desert experience without going on a mystical
Desert Safari. There are a variety of tours offered by several tour operators, so
choosing one that accommodates personal tastes and time is simple.
Dubai is now a city that boasts unmatchable hotels, remarkable architecture and
world-class entertainment and sporting events. The beautiful Burj Al Arab hotel
presiding over the coastline of Jumeira beach is the world's only hotel with a
seven star rating. The Emirates Towers are one of the many structures that remind
us of the commercial confidence in a city that expands at a remarkable rate.
Standing 350 meters high, the office tower is the tallest building in the Middle
East and Europe.
Dubai also hosts major international sporting events. The Dubai Desert Classic is a stop on the Professional Golf Association tour. The Dubai Open, an ATP tennis tournament, and the Dubai World Cup, the world's richest horse race, draw thousands every year.
