Dubai: From desert outpost to chic city of gold
22 January 2021
A city that has literally been built from the ground up in the last 20 years, Dubai is one of the glamourous seven city-states in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Conveniently located on the Persian Gulf and just an easy, few hours flight from either Europe or Asia, Dubai has gained a well-deserved and constantly increasing reputation of excellence and luxury amongst the jet-setting class. In an ordinary year of travel, Dubai is the fourth most visited city in the world and is also the fastest growing tourist city, with an average 10% increase in international visitors per year (discounting 2020 of course)!
As the most populous city in the Middle East with the fastest growing economy and home to truly world-class shopping with the famous “City of Gold” Gold Souk in the Deira district, resplendent with more than 250 glittering gold shops.
Temperatures are just starting to increase from the winter lows making it the perfect time to equally enjoy a hot day at the beach or a cool night, dining al fresco.
