Dubai, an alchemy of profound traditions and ambitious futuristic vision wrapped into starkly evocative Desert splendour.
It’s hard not to admire Dubai for its ambition and ability to dream up and realise projects that elsewhere would never get off the drawing board. The high buildings, the palm shaped ilslands and the concepts such as flying taxis, a lightning – fast hyperloop train and an army of robocops are all reflections of a mindset that fearlessly embrace the future. Dubai is a city firmly in charge of writing its own narrative.
Shopping at Dubai
Shopping is a leisure activity in Dubai. It’s the top retail hunt that hosts not one but two huge annual shopping Festivals. Malls here are much more than the mere collection of stores. Those beautiful high buildings look like an Italian palazzo or a Persian Palace and lure visitors with surreal attractions such as an indoor ski slope, a giant aquarium or an open- air botanical garden. Traditional souqs are also the beehives of activity humming with timeless bargaining banter.
After it gets dark
Dubai sometimes seems like a forever on the outlook for a good time after it gets dark. The party-spectrum caters for every taste, budget and age group. From flashy dance temples, sleek rooftop terraces and sizzling beach clubs to fancy cocktail caverns, shisha lounges and concerts under the stars. Dubai’s nightlife centres on fancy hotels. Alsio it includes community theatre, live-music venues and world class Dubai Opera.
The Creative City
Dubai is the first Middle Eastern City to make the Unesco list of creative cities of Design. It shares the cultures from all corners of the world. This diversity expresses itself in the landscapes, fashion, music and performances.
Although, rooted in the Islamic tradition but its an open society where its easy for new comers and visitors to connect with myriad experiences. Dubai is a fertile environment conductive to breaking down cultural barriers and preconceptions.
