Dubai is a vibrant, multi-cultural city situated on the Arabian Gulf coast of the United Arab Emirates. This glossy metropolis is the major business hub for the Middle East, where­ people work hard and play just as hard. 

    If you’re looking for something a bit different, have a go at sandboarding in the high dunes outside the city, or stay cool and indulge in Dubai’s thrillingly rich food and music scene. If your group includes kiddies, the Wild Wadi Waterpark is the coolest place of all and is the perfect spot for a fun-filled, family day out.
