why dubai?

Why dubai? I've been hearing more and more about dubai, I was just wondering what is so special about the place. Is it the shopping, beaches, etc? thanks.

Why go to any place? It's horses for courses.

For us it's weather, restaurants, shopping, excellent service, dessert safari, and as a bonus, the flight is no further than New York!

the flight is a key factor - its so short from the UK. The beaches are great - the service is amazing at the hotels/restaurants and the food available, especially seafood is brilliant. The gold souk is fantastic for deals on jewellery.

My wife and I went there on vacation a couple of years back. I just wanted to go there because of an article I was read in the paper. And I just like to see new and different places...we stayed in Dubai for about a week and we had a nice time there go shopping, going to the beach, looking around town, going on a desert drive etc. I have posted a trip report with pictures on my homepage http://gardkarlsen.com if you are interested in seeing what we did while we were in Dubai :-)

its a mix between east and west, so you get to experience something different but still have the comforts of home,

the shopping is cheap, beaches amazing and there is tons to do
