Known as the shopping capital of the Middle East, Dubai has more than 70 shopping malls including the world's largest. Here you can visit the world's first and only 7 star hotel, the iconic Burj Al Arab. Built in the shape of a billowing sail it is set upon its own artificial island which juts out into the crystal clear waters of the Gulf. Luxury is a trademark of the hotels of Dubai and many of the world's top rated hotels have been built here.
Dubai is also known for its gold, so why not visit the Gold Souk for a special piece of jewellery but remember to haggle! To explore old Dubai you can visit the conservation area of the tiny Bastakiya quarter with its unique atmosphere. Built by traders in the 19th Century there are little lanes lined with merchants' houses, art galleries and cafes.

Golfers are not forgotten either with world class courses of spectacular design.
