Why visit Dubai ?

In the 1970s, Dubai was just a small fishing village at the mouth of an inlet. Today, the city-state has 2.3 million inhabitants including its agglomeration with the cities of Sharjah, Ajman and Umm al Qaiwain, and the skyscrapers have never stopped coming out of the earth, reaching heights never seen before, as the highest building in the world Burj Khalifa. In Dubai, everything is modern, its world-class hotels, such as the Burj Al Arab, a 7-star hotel, or its metro, but also its huge shopping centres… And the World Expo 2020 planned in Dubai will not slow the progress and development… Despite a rather poor historical heritage, Dubai is a destination where activities proliferate, in the desert or in the air. Whether you are there for a day or two, or for a week, a stay in Dubai will always be busy. But be aware of the hot summer…
