Dubai has transformed in the last 100 years from a port town to the largest city in the United Arab Emirates, and a center for great shopping, glitz and glamor and high romance. With tall skyscrapers filling the skyline, this is where Tiger Woods famously teed up from the helipad of the tallest hotel in the world – the Burj Al Arab Sailboat Hotel. Of course, one of the major draws to Dubai is the desert, where you can get in touch with more traditional Arab customs, such as belly dancing and camel riding, or if you’re feeling really adventurous, take a 4x4 through the dunes.
