United Arab Emirates - The words first, tallest, deepest, most expensive, outlandish’ could have been created for this city.
Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.
The best time to visit Dubai is from November to April, when the weather is pleasant. January and February see heavy tourist traffic because of the Dubai Shopping Festival.
