Holidays to Dubai have been recommended to people who want a unique and luxurious destination.

An article in the Business Times, cited by Asia One Travel, states that Dubai is like nothing anyone can imagine thanks to the contradictions between ancient traditions and modern attractions, as well as the array of things to do.

It calls the city state “a Middle East metropolis” and points out that the Burj Al Arab – the first seven-star hotel to open there – now seems “quaint” due to the sudden appearance of a multitude of other luxury resorts, including Atlantis the Palm.

However, there is still plenty for the traveller who prefers to get away from the glitz. The website suggests a visit to Dubai Creek, where tourists can purchase perfumes, spices, gold and other souvenirs from the bazaars along its banks.

It concludes by pointing out that whether people want duty-free shopping, sports or simply sunshine, a holiday to Dubai is bound to fit the bill.

TV presenter Mica Paris was recently pictured in Dubai where she was taking part in a charity campaign.
