Walking Tours of Dubai, United Arab Emirates
In Dubai, everything is bigger and better. It’s home to the world’s tallest building, largest mall, biggest indoor theme park and highest Ferris Wheel. The city is constantly evolving under the leadership of the visionary Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. In 2020, Dubai will play host to the World Expo, and there are even more new developments that are expected to launch before that big event.
At the heart of the glitz and glam, however, is a city with a rich cultural heritage. Dubai first made its name as a fishing and pearl village, and a strategic port on the Persian Gulf. Even with modern developments, the city’s sense of history is still alive today. One can savor a cup of traditional coffee, catch a ride on an old-fashioned abra or shop in a traditional souk.
As tourism destination, Dubai’s hard to beat. In fact, its airport is one of the top three busiest in the world, and it welcomed nearly 15 million visitors in 2016. The city is true melting pot, with a diverse expatriate community that makes up 92% of the emirate’s population.
