The city of Dubai is certainly the best known of the United Arab Emirates, on the Persian Gulf. Come give by yourself the city of all excesses, between its archipelagos in the shape of palm trees, its hotels all more luxurious than the other, or even the tallest building in the world, with 164 floors and 828 meters in height. Between its extravagant shopping centers and picturesque souks, Dubai is also an ideal city for shopaholics, especially thanks to the Shopping Festival or the Global Village. Go through the Deira Gold souk, hop into an abra (taxi boat) to discover the city, admire the historic center in Dubai Creek, promise yourself in the old Persian merchant district, or visit the Dubai Museum.
