Dubai through my eyes




Dubai through my eyes, a story which started exactly 4 months ago when i visited Dubai for 3 months. I boarded a flight from Indra Gandhi international airport India for Dubai, the flight is approximately of 3:30 hrs. This was my first trip to the middle east after i grew up and i was expecting Dubai to be a Massive concrete jungle and lacking any real culture or history as you can expect from me as i am from India which is know for its rich tradition and history. I am going to give you every detail about the greatest city.


I am going to tell you as a tourist which truthfully i was not, as i landed in Dubai, as my feet touched the first bit of pavement i could feel my bank accounts shudder. The skyline touched the heavens and almost every car on the streets were Lamborghini, Bentley, Rolls Royce or any other luxury or sports car that you can think of. After i became familiar with the place i came to know that Dubai was actually overflowing with culture and tradition borrowed from thousands of foreigners who called Dubai “home”.

As time passed i was able to truly experience the city. I went to the largest mall, next to the largest building this world has ever seen, the largest fountain, the greatest laser show, experienced the desert safari with the best tourism company in Dubai

Later i realized that Dubai was everything that people want it to be.

Over the top

The city was trendy with nightlife that made it look like Las Vegas.

The city was safe despite massive amounts of wealth and power, most people left their luxury vehicles unlocked and their doors open to visitors

The people were quite friendly and helping.

“travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries”

-Aldous Huxley

So, Dubai actually turned out to be so much more than i could have ever expected. There’s beauty to be found in every corner of the world, you just have to be open to experiencing it.
