Wanderlust Wednesday: Dubai

It’s another Wanderlust Wednesday, and today I’m dreaming about Dubai. I’ve been wanting to add the Middle East to my travel repertoire for quite some time now, and I’ve heard some really good things about Dubai.

Dubai is a luxurious place, well known for luxury shopping, incredible architecture, and a great nightlife scene. The Burj Klahifa, which is an 830 meter tall tower, dominates the skyline, but the other skyscrapers there are pretty incredible as well. There is the Dubai fountain which has jets and lights which are choreographed to music, and there are also man-made islands just offshore.

I’ve never been to Dubai, but I sort of imagine it to be like a mega Vegas of the Middle East, except without as much debauchery. Either way, it sounds like a place where one can witness incredible feats of engineering and experience some truly unique sights.
