Dubai

I have been to Dubai twice. The first time with a friend called Amelie, to visit together this city that we did not know. It was the month of February, it was very pleasant to have a climate as warm whereas in France, it was winter. I recently returned to Dubai to see my friend who now lives there, while it was summer in France. The heat there was really high and the temperatures awesome! It can do up to 45 degrees, in the shade. You really have to be very careful with time and especially to hydrate well.

The city of Dubai has more than one million inhabitants and is the country’s first port. Dubai has become the most famous city of the federation, while it is not the capital, due to the media coverage of its tourist projects as Dubai’s most luxurious hotel, Burj-Al-Arab. His real estate projects are astounding as for example The World, artificial archipelago that reproduces the map of the world, or Palm Island, an artificial palm-shaped peninsula, nicknamed « The Palm ». There are many hotels, such as the world-renowned Atlantis Hotel. Atlantis The Palm is home to one of the most visited water parks in the world and one can meet dolphins. It really is a magical place.

It is also in Dubai that is the tallest building in the world at present: the Burj Khalifa. It is the tallest human structure ever built, with 829 meters of height of which 163 floors. Inaugurated in 2010, it cost $ 1.5 billion. It is possible to climb enjoy the impressive view on the 135th floor.

There is a beautiful view of the Burj Khalifa from the pool at the Shangri-La. It is possible to access this pool without being a customer, as we did.

The Burj Al Arab (or « sailing ») is a self-proclaimed « seven star » hotel, one of the most recognizable in the world due to its shape. At the top there is a heliport (sometimes also used as a tennis court) as well as a panoramic restaurant and a swimming pool with an incredible view. It is considered to be one of the most expensive hotels in the mode: The official rate for the less expensive suites varies between 7,600 and 17,600 dirhams per night. It is absolutely impossible to approach it for visitors.

Dubai Marina is an area located in the heart of what is called New Dubai. It is indeed an area of the city in full expansion. The marina is articulated around a canal of about 100 meters wide will be composed of about 200 buildings and skyscrapers with the particular and disproportionate architecture.

To see a more authentic side of Dubai, I suggest a trip to the Dubai Desert. It is possible to do 4×4 in the dunes, take a dromedary ride at sunset and enjoy a typical meal on the local music. This excursion makes it possible to reconnect with a more traditional side that one can forget being in downtown Dubai.

Dubai aims to become in a few years the world’s premier destination for luxury tourism and become one of the world’s hubs of family, business and commercial tourism.
