Luxury All Around
Ok, truth be told, there is not luxury all around, but it is certainly more than you will find in any other city in the world. Think about a city that has a traffic cop chasing you in a Lamborghini if you flout a traffic rule.
Camels are parked excellently among cars in the parking lot. If you fancy gold, here is your opportunity for you to buy it from an ATM machine. In other places, people withdraw money from ATMs. Not in Dubai! You can withdraw gold. There is a gold souk (market), gold plated cars, electronics, furniture and some of the most luxury hotels and resorts in the world and many more.
Incredible, But Unusual Pets
When in the city of Dubai, do not be surprised to see a cheetah riding in the front seat of a Lexus. And doesn’t that tiger belong in Siberia? Well, it is Dubai and you can buy everything money can buy. In other cities, pet lovers roll around with Chihuahuas and furry felines draped over their arms. In Dubai, people go for the real big cats like lions and tigers!
