Just 5 h from Europe and 3 h from most parts of the Middle East, the Near East, and the subcontinent of India, Dubai makes a great short break for shopping, partying, sunbathing, fine dining, sporting events, and even a few sinful pleasures.

It is a city of superlatives: for the fastest, biggest, tallest, largest and highest, Dubai is the destination.

It has the largest immigrant population in the world. Note that, since September 2006, a harmonised weekend of Friday and Saturday has been adopted for the public sector and schools.

Government departments, multinational companies, and most schools and universities are now off on Friday and Saturday (after years of a mixed bag of Friday/Saturday and Thursday/Friday weekends).

Some local companies still work half a day on Thursday with a full day on Saturday, but larger companies tend to permit relaxation and time off work for their employees on Friday and Saturday.

One Emirates, many Peoples Once you land in Dubai, you might not think it is an Arab country.

You might think that you are in India or the Philippines.

Dubai (دبي) is one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates.

It is rather like an independent city-state and is the most modern and progressive emirate in the UAE, developing at an unbelievable pace in the tourist and trade sectors especially.

Recently Dubai won the bid to host EXPO 2020, a Universal scale Registered Exposition approved by the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE), Paris.

A relatively new tourist destination, Dubai was gaining popularity in recent years until the global economic crash of 2008.
