Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Top 10 Plays
Dubai is a mind-boggling kind of place. Don’t believe me? Look at a photo of Dubai from 1990, and you’ll see a desert wasteland. Today, it’s one of the most dynamic cities on the planet. Not enough beachfront property? No problem, they built artificial islands in the shape of a palm leaf and another archipelago in the shape of the world. And the building doesn’t stop there. Tallest skyscraper in the world? Check. One of the tallest and most expensive hotels in the world? Check. The largest collection of theme parks in the Middle East (aka Dubai Parks and Resorts)? Check. If you’re looking for the soul of the Middle East, you won’t find it in Dubai. But if your family is looking for a fun-filled vacation destination that defies the imagination, book your tickets now.
