Challenge week 7: If you had a choice of a country to holiday in, where would it be and why?

I would choose to go on holiday in Dubai. Dubai is actually one of the best places I have come across in travel magazines.

What is more, based on the TV documentaries that I have seen, I believe that Dubai would be a very interesting place to visit. So, I would like to go sightseeing there. I would have a private tourist guide to explain me the architecture of the buildings and help me see the sights.

Specifically, the highlights of the sights are “The Palm Islands” and “The world”. The Palm Islands, named Palm Jumeirah and Palm Jebel Ali, are man-made islands which are built in the shape of a palm tree! These two islands are primarily destinations for relaxation and entertainment. The other sight is called “The world” due to its shape. “The world” is consisted of thousands small private artificial islands whose shape looks like the continents of the world!

However, Dubai would be a fantastic destination where I could go to relax and enjoy the sunny weather. This place contains the most expensive of first class hotels, luxury villas and apartments, famous beaches, restaurants, café and malls. So, I would go shopping, swimming and I would do water sports.

Furthermore, I am curious to meet the local people and find out more about their lifestyle and culture.

  1. Hi Joanna!I like the pink colour of your profile.
    To my opinion Dubai is a place that excess predominates..Surely a differet place to visit, but I find that everything there is technical and not natural..For example the "Palm islands" that you report above.Also, have you thought of the high temperatures?
    Lastly I would like to say that I like the way you have written and posted this article.I find that you have done a great job!
