Dubai is not just a land for those seeking financial growth or better opportunities; it is also a land for the travellers and fun seekers of the world.  More tolerant than much of the Middle East, Dubai allows non-Muslim visitors to enjoy alcohol and nightlife in its clubs and hotels.  Also known as the shopping capital of the Middle East, Dubai is home to the world's largest shopping centre, The Dubai Mall.  With over 635 retailers, more than 1200 stores, an aquarium, a cinema and souks, this is shopping that takes itself very seriously!

Housing some of the world's best places to see, explore and dine at, Dubai has become a sort of landmark for luxury living.  You can dine at the most extravagant hotel in the world, the Burj Al Arab, or watch a record breaking, musical fountain show, the Dubai Fountains.  Be it the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, or the man made islands of Palm Jumeirah or the Dubai Mall, Dubai really knows is how to create headlines.  Between work and leisure time you will not fall short of activities to do in Dubai.

Living in a climate like Dubai's allows people to enjoy an outdoor-centric lifestyle for the majority of the year and provides access an abundance of fun activities for the family.  From water parks, to dune bashing, camel racing, boat tours, beaches, camping, clubbing and more, the place has a lot to offer to each and every one.  The New York Times described Dubai as "the kind of city where you might run into Michael Jordan at the Buddha Bar or stumble across Naomi Campbell celebrating her birthday with a multiday bash".  The possibilities really are endless.
