This city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of the most popular destinations in the Middle East. This is hardly surprising, because here the extraordinary wealth of the country reflects in every detail. On the other hand, the city offers living space for approximately 85% of the country’s population and many attractions for visitors from all over the world. Only in 2014, the city welcomed than 11.6 million tourists…
Nodal point for business, culture & politics
“Everything … and plenty of it!” – This could be the motto of the city. In Dubai, all the threads in the Emirates come together and merge into a metropolitan point where almost the entire social, economic, political and cultural life of the country takes place. Dubai is a city of records, the exaggeration of superlatives. The highest skyscraper in the world (the “Burj Khalifa” with majestic 823 m) or the famous artificial luxury-housing complex (“The Palm – Jumeirah”) are just two of many examples. It seems that in Dubai all limitations are expandable. Both, from the perspective of the usually feasible as well as from the perspective of the normally affordable!
Is money still an issue in Dubai?
Certainly – but just in a different dimension. The wealth accumulated by the earlier giant oil fields of the country seems to be immeasurable when looking at this super city. Alone the construction of the world’s biggest airport is a mammoth project that every day devours tens of millions of dollars. The planning of the largest shopping centre in the history of humankind (appraisal of the planning committee!) is the next monument, which will make it into local history. With 4.5 million square meters, the “Mall of the World” will outshine all other similar constructions.
Anyhow, even financially strong countries like the United Arab Emirates may swerve, as the global economic crisis has shown. In its urge to achieve ever-greater results, Dubai has overestimated itself. Only a gigantic bailout by Abu Dhabi prevented the end for the dazzling desert city. A very interesting report in the German magazine Spiegel takes a closer look at the situation. Furthermore, a change in thinking took place. Dubai shifted its efforts away from oil as the only monetary foundation to tourism. Today Dubai is on top again – and is building up like never before. The fact that the local police drives patrol in specially modified Lamborghinis, Ferraris and recently even a Bugatti Veyron, perfectly explains the current situation.
Luxury trips to Dubai – Six stars for the international jet set
While in other destinations worldwide, the rich and famous reside in five-star hotels, luxury resorts in Dubai – such as the “Atlantis – The Palm” – add one more star. In this regard, the Royal Bridge Suite with an area of almost 1,000 square meters speaks a clear language. Smaller, but not less exclusive – a stay on the “Palm Jumeirah” in the inspiring six-star beach resort “One & Only”. The two “Palm Beach Executive” suites offer only 130 m2 of living space, but feature a private pool on the ground floor.
Those who prefer to reside in Dubai City will find a sheer endless selection of posh and stylish accommodations. The hotel “The Address” with its 196 rooms and suites counts among the smaller of its kind. However, the five-star hotel offers a 1,000 square meter pool – it is considered one of the most beautiful in Dubai. “The Palace Downtown Dubai” is another luxury hotel in the heart of the city. The hotel complex in Arabian style is a fashionable home base for shopping lovers! Just a few minutes away you may find the “Souk A Bahar” or one of the largest shopping and entertainment facilities in the world: the Dubai Mall. Of course, you may also simply relax wonderfully in the hotel – a gigantic spa area leaves invites you to pure indulgence.
Romantic moments in an Arabic country, like Dubai…
… are, of course, possible. Anyhow, men should concentrate their flirt and charm efforts exclusively on tourists and foreigners. It is of absolute importance to respect the relevant customs and traditions of each country. Many single gentlemen, who prefer to discover this fantastic city in the company of a beautiful and educated woman, should plan ahead before leaving for Dubai. As most flights from Germany to the desert state take off in Frankfurt am Main, many gentlemen use the services of a professional and renowned Frankfurt Escort Agency. All ladies who are bookable via such agencies know how to move in elite circles and can perfectly adapt to the particular circumstances. For business travellers, this ability is of absolute importance – regardless of whether the trip takes them to Dubai, Hong Kong or London.
Destination Dubai – the bottom line
The opportunity to visit this city offers a very special experience. Certainly, many circumstances for visitors might seem strange at first. Already the dry desert heat can be tricky. However, if you visit Dubai with an open mind, are able to appreciate the variety of amenities and bring a healthy curiosity for everything new, you are in for legendary experiences. Anyhow, it should be mentioned that Dubai is now an affordable destination also for people with an “average income”…
