Dubai, with the largest population in United Arab Emirates, is a dynamic international business centre but also a perfect laid-back tourist escape. Dubai has been identified as the fastest growing city in the world and although it is known as the “shopping capital of the Middle-East” and entertainment plays a big part, cultural tourism is also popular.
Dubai takes advantage of the contrast created in the city between the ancient and the modern.Whether you’re visiting for business or pleasure, Dubai truly offers something for everyone to enjoy. The Burj Khalifa, an 830m tower, is the highlight of one of the more breathtaking skylines you’re likely to come across, while Dubai Fountain offers spectacular shows for all comers. It is not easy to choose the best Hotel in Dubai among more then 700 properties. I am presenting you my pick of the best for this year.
