Dubai is the prosperous star of the United Arab Emirates. It is hailed as one of the fastest growing cities in the world and is home to a culturally diverse, dynamic community. Historically, the city evolved around Dubai Creek and it continues to expand ever outwards with groundbreaking new developments. Now it is one of the world’s top holiday destinations due to the perennial sunshine, a mixture of world-class leisure, first-class hotels and the dramatic mix of rolling desertscapes and dramatic shoreline, where white sands meet the Arabian Gulf.
The icon of Dubai, Burj Al Arab rises out of its own man-made island 280 meters from the Jumeirah coast, 15km south of the city and 25km from Dubai International Airport. Visible from almost everywhere in the city, it is linked to the shore by a slender, gently curving causeway.
