Dubai is in Asia bordering the Persian Gulf. It is the rich Arab area for those with a taste for luxury to visit. It is part of the United Arab Emirates, the country, being only one of the Emirates but the richest one of all. And they are all pretty costly.
It is a beautiful playground for those with money to burn, as it contains mega-malls, supercars, theme parks, skyscrapers, and beaches. Of course, the vast desert and its patient or hostile camels is another great playground. There is much to provide entertainment, but perhaps little for anyone with a social conscience.
