What to see in Dubai, where it is located, characteristics of the territory, coast and islands, neighborhoods, main attractions and itinerary of places of interest to visit, from skyscrapers with particular shapes to the latest shopping centers.
Dubai, one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, is located on the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf coast.
Its territory is mainly characterized by sandy dunes and occupies a surface that also includes artificial islands that extend along the coast.
The World, an artificial archipelago made up of three hundred islands which, seen from the plane or satellite, reminds us of our planet, with its continents.
Palm Islands, or artificial peninsulas whose shape recalls that of the palm tree. In the city, a deep inlet, the Creek, divides its center into two districts, Deira and Bur Dubai, connected by a tunnel and two bridges.
A boat ride in the inlet, using motorized water taxis called abra, allows you to better visit this ever-expanding city, which amazes for its ambitious, luxurious and futuristic constructions.
To give an example we can mention the Burj Khalifa, an 828 meters high skyscraper that turns out to be the tallest structure in the world and the Burj al-Arab, one of the most luxurious hotels in the world, with 7 stars, whose structure is shaped like sailing.
To attract foreign investments, the authorities have established various free zones, it is possible to buy gold at very advantageous prices, and luxury shopping malls have been opened where electronic and various types of products are sold at competitive prices.
To go to spend holidays in Dubai the best time is between November and April, when the weather is cooler.
