Everything is possible in Dubai. This oil-rich emirate has evolved from a dusty desert town to a business capital and one of the most glamorous cities in the world. Megalomaniac construction projects, futuristic architecture, a seven-star hotel, the best restaurants and fanciest shops are mixed with traditional souks, shisha lounges and mosques. The city is surrounded by an endless desert and a crystal clear sea. Only a fraction of the residents are originally from the United Arab Emirates. The current population is an eclectic cocktail of nationalities, which gives the city an irresistible and incomparable vibe and energy.
