Dubai is the largest and most populated city in the United Arab Emirates. It is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is the capital of the Emirate of Dubai, one of the seven emirates.

Dubai is a cityscape photographer’s paradise that rivals New York, Shanghai, Tokyo or Hong Kong with state-of-the-art multi-lane highway grids and breathtaking spaghetti junctions, a futuristic metro system, the world’s largest man-made islands and some of the tallest skyscrapers in the world, including the 828 m Burj Khalifa which dominates the skyline.

There are several great districts of Dubai, which you should definitely visit: Dubai Downtown, Dubai Marina, Deira, Business Bay and Palm Island in particular. Dubai also boasts incredible local cuisine, fantastic shopping, great sandy beaches, water parks and family attractions. For true thrill seekers, Dubai offers a unique skydiving experience from a plane some 3900m above Palm Jumeirah as well as other out-of-city adrenaline-pumping experiences and adventures.
