Dubai is known as the city of the superlative. If you fly with Austrian Airlines to Dubai you can see this superlative already from the plane window. First of all there's an isle of palms and The World Dubai which are both man-made archipelagos. If you're in the city you can visit the Burj Khalifa, for example. It´s the world´s largest skyscraper at 828 metres tall. There are also many museums and theatres to visit during the day and in the evening. If you leave the city there are more destinations to experience. The Heritage Village is a replicated city of stone houses from regions of mountains and deserts, tents of Bedouins, market stands, etc., you can also go on trips through the desert which last several days.

Sights in Dubai

Sights in Dubai
Going through small alleys, passing traditional buildings and courtyards. Seeing small boutique hotels with narrow doors where tourists bump their heads. And everywhere windmills that are used as air conditioning. That's Bastakiya, the historic district in Bur Dubai. Home to the Al Fahidi Fort, the Dubai Museum and  Majlis Gallery. The Persian influence is truly noticeable here, the houses made of clay, shells and limestone adorned with plenty of Arabic art. Today, they all have landmark status and are only refurbished with identical materials.   Although this district only makes up one per cent of the whole city you have to be there for once - in order to see and understand how people used to live here in former times. Furthermore the narrow lanes offer the ideal protection against the sun. It's perfect for rummaging in the little stores, and visiting the numerous ateliers and galleries which do not only excite those interested in history but art fans as well.

Hilton Dubai
To lie in the sun at the swimming pool on the roof terrace, a nice cocktail in the hand and enjoying a view over the city and Dubai Creek - this could be endured longer by all means.   The Hilton Dubai Creek Hotel connects the art of living with business. The attractive location enables a quick way to business meetings. On the other hand the Hilton Creek is a perfect starting position for discovery tours in the city.   The airport is only ten minutes away, many shopping malls like the Deira City Centre and the old Dhow-Hafen are very close-by. Business can be done excellently in the nearby golf club. To relax you can use the shuttle-service to the sister hotel Hilton Jumeirah which has beach access.   Nice evenings in the house are guaranteed by Gordon Ramsay's restaurant Verre, which was awarded the prize for best restaurant in the Middle East. Rooms starting from 150 Euros.

The Gem Garden
To each hotel its restaurant. The Gem Garden belongs to the Holiday Inn Al Barsha and is located at the main transport axis, the Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai. The Gem is opened round the clock. Every day. We Central European can be quite astonished about that. Also when it comes to the minimal architecture and the interior in Zen style: simple, clear and clean. All tables and chairs neatly in a row. The only splash of colour: the green signet with spiral-shaped egg at the wall.   On the menu of The Gem it's all about variety: on Sundays - Italian cuisine with pizza and pasta. Tuesdays are fiery: burritos and enchiladas from Mexico. On Wednesdays they serve sea food and on Thursdays and Fridays you'll find sushi on the plates.   The next underground station is only five minutes away. Shopping fans get to the Arabic discount paradise - the Dubai Outlet Mall - via a free shuttle bus.

Souk Madinat
Dubai is the capital of replicas. The Souk Madinat Jumeirah is a Souk that opened in 2004 in the hotel, leisure and business centre Madinat Jumeirah. Like on traditional Arabian markets you find little lanes illuminated by lanterns, narrow waterways and 95 small boutiques and retailers.   The offer ranges from Converse sneakers and ties from the Tie Shop, to gold jewellery, fragrances, handiworks, carpets, cashmere, decorative knick-knacks for your apartment and underwear by Cotton Club and watches by Swatch. The focus lies on antiquities, handicraft and high-quality oriental groceries.   For those among you who are still searching for some souvenirs and presents: here you will definitely find some nice shiny gifts for your beloved ones at home. But: Price comparison pays off. Many goods at this tourist attraction are a little bit pricier than at other Souks around the city.
