D is for...Dubai

D is for Dubai

Dubai is not only the name of an emirate in the UAE, but it's also the name of a city in the emirate. Dubai has the largest population and the second largest land territory in all of UAE. Let me just say that, while I love Abu Dhabi, I LOVE Dubai. I guess cos it reminds me more of the US than Abu Dhabi. Parts of Dubai looks like a big, busy US city. Dubai is home to several cool buildings and designs.

Atlantis, The Palm

Burj Al Arab - one of the world's most luxurious hotels

Burj Khalifa - the tallest building in the world, featured in Mission Impossible 4

The Palm - a set of islands in the shape of a palm tree

The World - a set of islands in the shape of the world; still under construction
This is what it'll look like when completed!
And now for Arabic vocabulary...

dub - bear

Those islands are so cool! One day I plan on taking a trip to the Middle East. This just reinforces that desire. Thanks :)

I know right! Might I recommend the UAE? I haven't visited the other emirates, but Abu Dhabi and Dubai are all kinds of awesome! :D
