The city of Dubai is the main city of the emirate of Dubai. The city is sometimes called “Dubai City” to prevent it from being mixed up with the emirate. This city is a safe place for living. Dubai is a city wich promotes happiness, safety and the wellbeing of it residents.
Many expatriate schools in Dubai are English-speaking private schools that have English, American or International Baccalaureate curricula, as well as a large variety of local and national curricula. Some nursery schools accept babies from as young as three months, although most prefer to take on children who are walking age (around 12 months). Dubai British School, Dubai College, Dubai Gem Private School, English College Dubai, and Jumeirah College are all British 11-18 secondary schools that offer GCSE and A-Levels.
For many visitors to Dubai, the main reason to visit the city is to shop, and shopping is arguably a favourite occupation of its inhabitants; partly because the shopping is so good, and partly because, in a country where the weather is sweltering most of the year, air-conditioned shopping malls have become – like traditional town squares – a wonderful place to socialise.
Dubai has been called the “shopping capital of the Middle East”. Dubai alone has more than 70 shopping centres, including the world’s largest shopping centre, Dubai Mall.
Thanks to Dubai’s warm climate, its beaches are a great choice for winter holidays. During the hot summer months, it’s best to avoid the beaches, as it’s way too hot. The white sand beaches, stretching along the Emirate’s 170 km coast, are waiting for you, offering a wide range of leisure activities. Artificial islands have extended Dubai’s coast by over 100 km, creating a lot of new beaches. Dubai’s beaches, which sit on the Persian Gulf, are very clean and invite you to kick back and relax. Although things are a bit quieter on the beaches on the edge of the city, the beaches near the centre have everything a tourist’s heart could desire.
Dubai Metro Red Line Stops at or near major sights along Sheikh Zayed Rd and in Bur Dubai and Deira. Dubai Tram Slow but handy for getting around the Dubai Marina. To hail a cab, look for a stationary or approaching cab with the yellow light on (red means it’s occupied). The elevated, driverless Palm Jumeirah Monorail connects the Palm Jumeirah with Dubai Marina. There are three stations: Palm Gateway near the bottom of the ‘trunk’, Al Ittihad Park near the Galleria Mall and Atlantis Aquaventure at the Atlantis hotel.
There’s nothing the people of Dubai love more than to dress up and dine out. You can choose from a glittering array of celebrity restaurants and a huge variety of Middle Eastern food, plenty of them family friendly and almost all in Instagram-worthy locations. Don’t leave without experimenting with street eats in Deira, a beachside breakfast on Kite Beach, rooftop dining in Dubai Marina. With more than 200 nationalities living in Dubai, we’ve got nearly every craving covered.
Nightclubs in Dubai offer unforgettable experiences right from the music to the venue. Few clubs can compete with the renowned 360 bar and club perched on the rooftop terrace at the end of a pier in the heart of the Arabian Gulf. For a unique night on the town that can only be experienced in a vibrant city such as Dubai, party goers can opt to party on Nasimi Beach, an artificial beach set 7km out to sea. For serious music fans, Trilogy, located at the Souk Madinat Jumierah, hosts some of the top DJs every week and is one of the best places to visit for modern music lovers.
