The best shopping
Dubai is also known as the first-class shopping retreat where two big shopping festivals take place every year. Buying new things is a kind of recreation here, so Dubai shopping centers aren’t just a simple complex of retail stores you may find elsewhere. The local ones can look like an Italian palazzo or an eastern palace, and attract visitors with surprising amenities like an indoor ski resort.

While nightlife here is mostly centered in the luxurious hotels, there is a big variety of other amusements including performing art centers, live music sites, and upscale opera.

Dubai environment is a friendly one free of preconceived notions and cultural barriers. This vibe makes guests and newly arrived quickly feel comfortable and at ease here.
