A journey into the future
Dubai is one of seven emirates that form the United Arab Emirates. It´s a city that does not seem older than 50 years. There are skyscrapers, the tallest buildings in the world, gigantic malls, artificial beaches, eight lane highways, and luxurious hotels. Dubai seems like it is the new NY for Arab countries. If you are planning a trip to Dubai, you should know that it is almost impossible to travel without a car. Public transport is very reduced and their service is deficient. The advantage of renting a car is that oil is very cheap. There are also water taxis which are boats that take you from one side to the other of the Dubai Creek for only one dirham.
