Dubai is perfect for those who enjoy sophistication, tourism and good shopping
By Carol Contri
If you are looking for a trip full of surprises, Dubai should be included on your upcoming list. The desert climate of the region is forgotten when we talk about its large buildings and luxury stores that complement the scenery full of grandeur.
This location is filled with skyscrapers, such as Burj Khalifa, considered the tallest in the world. The Burj Al Arab is another in the shape of a sail. You can spend hours visiting the souks (the Arabic markets) or the malls. The Dubai Mall, home to over 1200 shops, the massive The Dubai Aquarium and the Emirates Mall all provide space for the Ski Dubai, an incredible indoor ski slope.
History of Dubai
Before starting the luxurious tours, go to the Dubai Museum. There you will see the archaeological findings of the region. And if you want to get closer to the Islamic tradition go to the Jumeriah Mosque. Worth the visit!
And you do not have to worry, the public transport system works very well and you can get around easily and quickly. Dubai has the best subway, bus and monorail network. It is also possible to use taxis, which are fast and affordable.
Go to Dubai Mall
Time to shop! Visit the Dubai Mall, the largest shopping mall in the world in total area! There are more than 1,200 shops, 120 restaurants and cafes and 22 movie theaters. Some of its great attractions are the department stores Galeries Lafayette, Bloomingdale’s and Marks & Spencer. Most major international brands have units in Dubai Mall.
There is a luxury sector in the Dubai Mall called Fashion Avenue, a mall inside the mall, with beautiful decoration and shops of brands such Armani, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Gucci, Louis Vitton, Chanel, among others.
The heat is intense, so it is a good option to bathe in the waters of the beaches that are located in the region. Our choice is the beach that is next to the Burj Al Arab. The beach has a small strip of sand and is great for taking lots of pictures.
