When you talk about Dubai, everything is superlative. Be it the tallest, lavish, most expensive, deepest and outlandish of culture, architecture and tourism. These are probably words created especially for this dazzling city, because where else in the world would you find seven star hotels, world’s tallest buildings, series of man-made islands and beaches shaped like a huge palm tree and the world map?
Amidst all this modernity and neck spraining skyscrapers there is also another side to Dubai which will definitely fascinate culture loving tourists. Here, there are old souks, forts, spice souks, gold souks, and traditional markets with souvenir type products. These souks are not usually covered on guided tours of Dubai; hence it is advisable to take it up by yourself if interested. A few kilometres into the magnificent desert you can find the camels roaming around free, a stark contrast to the bubbling city of Dubai. There is always a vibrant and cosmopolitan air about this dream destination for tourists.
Dubai can be segregated in to various sections according to their city landscape. Bur Dubai, Deira Dubai, Inner suburbs, Sheik Zayed road, Jumeirah, The Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Marina, Burj Al Arab and surrounding areas, Sharjah, Hatta and Abu Dhabi. Each segment has its own specialty and each one being worth the visit in their own charming way. Let us have a look at various Dubai Tour Packages
which can serve as a perfect Dubai travel guide
while you are being touristy in this country.
