Luxury Vacations in Dubai

In recent years Dubai has become the premiere luxury tourist destination in the world.

Dubai, an emirate within the United Arab Emirates that contains a city by the same name has an economy that was largely built upon the oil trade. Currently, Dubai’s oil production is declining and will more or less cease within the coming decades. In response to the imminent demise of oil production, the business and government leaders in Dubai have made a significant investment in diversifying its economy to move to a base of global business and tourism. The improvements have been on an unprecedented scale and have truly made Dubai a wonder of the modern world.

 

One of the most visited cities in the world, Dubai hosts close to 8 million visitors a year. These visitors will spend their time in Dubai taking in the larger than life attractions of the city that include some of the largest buildings in the world, man-made islands, indoor snow skiing, fabulous aquariums, and many other sights.  The extent of commitment to tourism in Dubai is breathtaking. In many ways, Dubai has followed the model of Las Vegas – creating an oasis of entertainment and luxury in the desert – while expanding the scope to make Dubai bigger and better.

Modern marvels in Dubai sit before a backdrop of historical and archeological import. From ancient buildings to the Grand Mosque, guests in search of the history of the area will find footprints of the past all around. Visitors will be faced with a huge variety of lodging options in Dubai. There are options to fit every budget. Dubai is known, partly, for its luxury accommodations. The Burj Al Arab, unofficially referred to by some as the worlds only 7 star hotel, is the 4th tallest building in the world and the most expensive hotel. This is but an extreme end of the lodging spectrum in Dubai.

 

Many people dream of spending just one night in this hotel. With a high price point, it will remain the territory of the super rich. Of course, there’s always the prospect of winning the Euromillions lottery, for example. Many potential visitors dreaming of luxury rooms in Dubai are trying to make it happen with Euromillions.com, available to eligible players around the world. Imagine winning a huge lump sum and then setting of for the desert to stay in a hotel room atop a skyscraper, overlooking the sea.

 

Even those who don’t manage to win millions of Euros can enjoy a holiday in Dubai and see the pinnacle of human engineering and business with great deals being offered all the time.
