The best vacation spot: Dubai

Dubai is the most developed state out of all the seven ones comprising the United Arab Emirates. Located at the bottom of the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai is by far one of the best vacation spots in the Middle East as it offers a lot even if it is situated in the middle of the desert not to mention it attracts tourists with its shopping escapades.

There are three parts of Dubai you have to know especially if you have different needs when you visit this city. Their central suburban area is called Bur Dubai, while their Business District is called Deira. If you have an expensive taste and would like to be closer to the beach, then Jumeirah is the place for you.

If you’re feeling the heat, head on the Beach Park which is located in Jumeira. A public beach and picnic resort which has clean amenities to refresh you when you feel the need to dip in water that’s cool and revitalizing.

Of course, for your shopping needs visit Bur Juman Centre which is in the heart of the Business District. A huge mall which offers different boutiques and of course, food shops to pump up your energy when you’re too pooped from shopping. If you want to save on your shopping, go to Karama Shopping Street. It’s not fancy like the mall but you’re sure to get a lot of bargains here especially if you want to bring home souvenirs.

Experiencing Dubai is definitely an exciting activity for anybody who wants to see and live through something different. Did I mention you can even go dune bashing in the desert using 4 wheel drive jeeps? Now that’s something to look forward to.

Holidays in Dubai (flight + hotel) from £442.
