Dubai, the land of opulent hotels, glorious sunshine, amazing food and of course the glamours shopping. Its the most popular or the 7 Emirates. You may have read my top 10 things to do in Dubai. This is a visual diary of some of the un-posted pictures from the trip to Dubai. Everything is done on a grander scale in Dubai, from dancing fountains, Sky slops in malls, to 7 start hotels, man-made islands in the shape of world countries, worlds tallest building, which by the way Saudi Arabia is planning on snatching soon with plans of the Kingdom Tower in Jeddah. You cannot help but be impressed with the development in Dubai; a land the arose from the desert to this great big metropolis that houses the biggest and best of everything.
Although exploring the city is easy if you have a car, I wouldn't recommend hiring a car(even as cheap as they are), as driving in Dubai is fairly erratic and frankly dangerous in my opinion from the things I witnessed. So you can either stick to taxis or use the Metro system. This had about 50 stations the last time I was there but was fastly expanding to cover more of the city and outer limits of Dubai. It covers the airport too so if you have a long layover in Dubai you can explore the main sights and get back to the airport for you flight fairly easily.
