It can be fascinating to examine the UAE’s foray into modern world when only a decade ago the country was merely composed of sand dunes, crumbling forts and Bedouin tribes who enjoyed existence simply in fishing villages. Powered largely (but by no means exclusively) by oil worth, today UAE is defined by magnificent hotels, state-of-the-art architecture, show-stopping malls and seemingly unending thirst for innovative projects. This transition offers an intriguing fusion of cultural and rampant consumerism. Dubai has veracity to live up their dream be it is in the form of world tallest building or manmade island shaped like palm tree, a skiing paradise or the faster roller coaster in the world. From spices souks to vast natural desserts UAE offers endless discoveries to visitors from all corner of the world. Although rooted in Islamic traditions, UAE is a stirring alchemy of deep traditions and ambitious futuristic dream. It is a place where a traditional Bedouin lifestyle and customs continue alongside Western modernity.
