Vacation Destinations: Dubai


Emily Saarloos, Staff Writer

Dubai is one of the most well known cities in the world for its intense glamor and glitzy lifestyle it promotes. Dubai is located in the United Arab Emirates and has lively nightlife and luxury shopping all over the city. Think Las Vegas but more extravagant. Dubai has the largest building in the world known as the Burj Khalifa which is 2,717 feet tall. The height of it is slightly over a half mile long. The city is considered extremely luxurious, however the surrounding areas are completely rural. 

The city of Dubai is so well traveled that there are 7 times more foreigners than locals there at all times. Also a lot of foreigners live there without being citizens from countries such as India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan and they tend to get jobs in the construction business. 

In Dubai they have very strict social rules such as dancing in public is not allowed since it is considered provocative, also no PDA is allowed.

The cops there also have super cool cars. They either drive a Ferrari FF or a Lamborghini Aventador which are about 1.7 million United States Dollars. They have these cars since they are fast and they can catch the criminals more efficiently.
