90% of the Dubai population are expatriates, with only 10% being local Arabs. In Dubai, there are almost 200 different nationalities and thus a perfect example of multi-culture. One has the liberty to practice their own religion in Dubai in mosques, churches, and Mandar for different religions. You are also allowed to show different cultural variations and traditions.

If you are a foodie person, Dubai is for you! In Dubai, you can have any type of food with amazing flavor. Whether its panipuri, mutton biryani, steak, burgers, or pizza, you name it and it will be in Dubai. There is a huge variety in terms of food so everyone can find something to love.
Head to a small restaurant to fulfill a craving or to a 5-star hotel to pamper yourself. There are different restaurant chains and you can try them one by one. You will be tempted with amazing American, Chinese, Lebanese, Persian, Filipino, French, and many more cultural foods once you are in Dubai.
Dubai is the perfect destination with the perfect combination of sand, sun, and sea throughout the year. There are on average 300 sunny days per year! If you feel cold you have the sun to enjoy. If you feel hot you have the sea to enjoy. The sand dunes are perfect to make the trip memorable.
Once you are in Dubai, try a visit to the man-made island built in 2006. Palm Island can also be seen from the sky. There are million dollar villas on Palm Jumeirah owned by different nationalities. You can enjoy vacationing there as a family or as a couple. There are plenty of activities you can do to make the trip fantastic.
The Tallest Building in the World
Burj Khalifa, known as the tallest building in the world, is a masterpiece in its own kind. The Burj is twice the height of the Empire State Building in New York and is usually the first thing visitors come and see where they can delight in viewing the dancing fountain.
If you love shopping then Dubai is for you. You can find practically anything your heart desires. Dubai is famous for its shopping festival which is one month long and offers huge discounts for shoppers. The festival also helps you win gold and cars.
Exploring Gold Souk
If you love gold or jewelry then gold souk is the place you must visit. Even if gold shopping is not on the list, you can purchase something once you visit gold souk.
