This is the place to go to if you want gold bars, not cash, out of an ATM. Brash and glitzy, Dubai is the international hot spot for tourists that like the good things in life. Famous for its "Burj Khalifa" - the world's tallest building inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright that is half a mile high - mega shopping malls where you can enjoy a bit of indoor skiing or venturing into an underwater world before or after flashing the credit card around like its about to disappear when the bargain sales are on, or the call of Armani glamor is too much to bear. This is where the police rock around in Lamborghinis or Ferraris and it is definitely a big "no no" to think you can get away with smuggling drugs.
Despite its wealth, Dubai has no sewerage system and relies on "poop" trucks to haul the city's droppings away. You can't drink in your own home unless you have a "liquor license" to do so and where the descendants of pirates now rule the United Arab Emirates and Qatar because of their petroleum. A global city and commercial hub, Dubai sits on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is to host the World Expo in 2020. With an iconic cityscape of skyscrapers and high-rise buildings, it is the most expensive city in the Middle East, with its hotel rooms the 2nd most expensive in the world.
There are so many sights to see and things to do in Dubai that it will have your brain spinning. Spend money, hike the streets gawking, do you let the inner child loose at one of the attraction parks or lay on the beach sun worshipping? Everyone has to do the trek to the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa on the 124th floor to get the 360 degree view that only birds do, over the city on one side, the desert on another and then swivel around for the ocean vista. At the base of this astounding building you will find the Dubai Fountain set amidst lush gardens. If the museum buff with you insists on some history, there is the Dubai Museum to appease their brain, housed in the Al-Fahidi Fort (1787) where the walls are made of coral-blocks held together with lime. You should head to the Old Dubai (Bastakia) area where wealthy Persian merchants swanned around their plush homes complete with wind-towers. The area is overflowing with distinctive Arabian architecture and the narrow laneways of a long ago era. If this type of viewing turns you on, then go to the Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum House where 30 rooms envelope a central courtyard. More history awaits in the Dubai Creek area where there is the Dhow Wharfage flush with 100 year old dhows. You can hunt down a mosque or two to enter, or visit the Deira Souks (markets) that throb with humanity no matter what time you are there.
