A cultural melting point that overflows with international opulence, Dubai is an alchemical blend of Arab tradition and futuristic global development. A man-made city that is situated deep within the Arabian Desert, Dubai is brimming with starkly evocative splendor and ingenious vision. Dubai’s unswerving verve, ability, and aspiration has seen the city become the site of some of the planet’s most iconic sights, including the world’s tallest skyscraper, a man-made island in the shape of a palm tree, and the world’s largest shopping mall. Audacious ambition is the buzzword here, as the city has become a hotspot for commercial and business operations, as well as a global vacation locale. However, the main appeal of “The City of Gold” is of course, its vast choice of retail amenities. Nicknamed the “Shopping Capital of the East,” Dubai is home to the world’s largest shopping mall that is overflowing with international designers to homegrown Arab talent. Of course, the traditional souks are not to be ignored. Beehives of activity, the souks are awash with the hums of international conversations and bargaining banter, complemented by the vibrant sights and scents of shisha. Tirelessly breaking down cultural barriers despite being deeply rooted in Islamic tradition, Dubai welcomes all with open arms.
