Top Reasons to Go to Dubai

Sunshine: It only rains four days out of the year in Dubai. Sand is white, the sea is clean and clear, and you are guaranteed a tan, any time of year.

Luxury: Dubai really knows how to turn on the charm. Even public spaces are decked in gold and marble, and every designer brand is here for the taking.

Theme parks: Water parks, extreme rides, amusement parks, international expos, and cultural design zones are open year-round. There is even an indoor amusement park for the summer.

The biggest, longest, brightest, most expensive everything: It's the kind of city that can give you neck strain from looking up. You'll constantly be in awe of your surroundings.

Safety in the Middle East: It's an incredibly peaceful hub, and very welcoming of tourists. Dubai allows the opportunity to experience authentic Arabic culture without fear.

Food: You'll learn more about Gulf and Levant cuisine here than almost any other part of the world, but the Subcontinental cuisine (India, Pakistan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka) is also outstanding.
