The Land of Sheikhs

It’s the land where people don’t need to pay the Income Tax to their government, It’s the land where local people are called Emiratis and they are just 15% & rest are other nationals, It’s the Fashion Capital of the East, it’s the land where bus stop is also Air Conditioned….. The list goes on and on….. Yes it’s none other than everyone’s favourite – Dubai.

When we reached this land of Sheikhs we got amazed by its beautiful Skyline, every building in Dubai has different shape. Seeing this incredible sight, only one word comes to your mind “Wahhh”. Dubai Mall is the largest Mall in the World. Here you get not only branded & luxury shops but it is also home to Dubai Aquarium & the World’s tallest building ‘Burj Khalifa.’ You reach the 124th floor of Burj Khalifa in just a fraction of a minute by lift. Once you reach the observatory deck of this building you feel like a bird. You get awesome bird’s eye view of Dubai, the crisscrossing fly overs, on one side you see beautiful architecture & on the other you come across desert. If you are lucky then you can see Burj Al Arab – one of the world’s most expensive hotel.

The most exciting part of the Dubai tour is its Desert Safari in sand Dunes. It’s simply superb. Your land cruiser passes through desert and suddenly your driver brings you down from a great height and you almost skip a heartbeat. It’s truly an incredible experience. You will enjoy the sunset in the desert. Cherry on the cake is the graceful Belly dance show.

While doing the city tour you come across the modern as well as the traditional side of Dubai. It is amazing to witness the skyscrapers, various business parks, Universities, Hotels, Dubai Creek, Abra Boat ride on the creek to reach Gold Souk, Emiratis House…….. the list of attractions is endless.

This is the land which has the World’s tallest building, the World’s largest Mall, the World’s only 7 Star Hotel……. So what are you waiting for? Come & explore this amazing land of the sheikhs.
