The Emirate of Dubai is the second largest of the seven United Arab Emirates but has the biggest population at over 2.1 million people. It is rather like an independent city-state and is the most modern and progressive emirate in the UAE, developing at an unbelievable pace in the tourist and trade sectors especially.
Size has been synonymous with Dubai as it continues to build the first, largest and the biggest constructions in the world. Dubai’s dynamics are always transient and ever-changing with its constant urge to construct something better and bigger than the previous. If there was a Palm Island, Nakheel thought of the World Island. Burj Al Arab seemed too timid when Burj Khalifa cropped up, distancing itself to being a loner in the crowd.
The best time to visit Dubai is during the period November and April, as the weather is rather pleasant during this phase (with temperatures in the low 30s).
