World Class Magnificence
Dubai is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the capital of the Emirate of Dubai. Located in the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula on the coast of the Persian Gulf, Dubai aims to be the business hub of Western Asia. Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks, as well as "The World" Islands.
This city is ultra-modern, but western tourists should be warned, it can have its drawbacks. Liquor licenses are not available to non-residents in the other Emirates, but it is possible for tourists and visitors to buy and drink alcohol in licensed venues, such as hotels, restaurants and clubs. Drinking in public or being intoxicated in public is against the law. In Dubai and all other emirates besides Sharjah, the drinking age is 21. Drinking alcohol in Sharjah is illegal.
Its main source of wealth has historically been as a port. In recent years it has sought to make money from property development and luxury tourism, building impressive hotels such as the Burj al-Arab. Dubai is a city that bridges two worlds, of age-old traditional value, with newly spurred visions from newly found technologies and wealth. This is a land with a rich, deep history and culture, with an absolutely glamorous surface. This place is everything they've said, and yet nothing like it, and something all on its own.
