Around the World in 26 Letters--Dubai


File:Burj Al Arab Dubai.jpg

I don't know much about Dubai other than it's a city built on imagination. It's distinct architecture, shopping malls and markets, desert and beaches, man-made islands and outlandish hotels, all of which are bound to be entertaining and memorable--definitely alluring.



Would you go?

    1. Great imaginations over there, and then making them into actual places! Cool!

  3. Dubai is a bit tourist-y for me. I prefer to camp in the woods in November with just my husband and dog for company. Yet I'm so glad nobody else likes that kind of vacation, because we'd have too much company! See you around the A to Z Challenge!

    1. I know, who would have thought to build islands into the shape of a palm tree?

  8. Hm, probably not. It seems like a very "indoor" kind of place. Like Vegas.

    1. Yes, probably very much like Vegas--crazy themes and adventures inside!

  11. I think what they've done there is fascinating. Don't they have the tallest building in the world now?

  12. I've been, and I saw some amazing things...but next time I WILL go with a man, or not at all. It wasn't that fun being a woman alone, at least not in the area of the city I stayed in (a more traditional Muslim area).
