Dubai: the Middle East meets the world with astonishing results

A period of extraordinary activity has transformed Dubai into one of the most modern, forward-thinking cities on the planet. The world’s tallest tower, a series of man-made islands, gigantic aquariums, indoor ski slopes and seven-star hotels make Dubai one of the world’s fastest-growing tourist destinations. But don’t be fooled into thinking there is nothing more to Dubai than glitz and glamor. Scratch the surface and the heartbeat of a multicultural, multifaceted city still beats strong.
