Seniors Discover Dubai

Having just returned from Prague, Vienna and Budapest, I wanted to know which were considered the World’s Greatest Cities.  Can you list the top five or so?  #1 was NYC followed by London, Paris, Berlin and Barcelona. Dubai, UAE, the 8th most visited city in the world, is quickly becoming a top destination among senior travelers for its warm climate and exceptional shopping. The most popular time to visit is during the winter, with its milder weather and abundant events. The least popular time to visit is in July and August when temperatures and humidity rise to sweltering heights.

Located in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is a cosmopolitan city that offers plenty of exotic flair for travelers, mixing luxury hotels and modern shopping with traditional culture. 3.3 million folks liked this YouTube Dubai visit.  I hope that you will find it of interest as well.

Time Out Dubai

When you press Dubai on the list above, here’s what comes up. It’s one of those One Stop websites that can provide just about everything you ever would want to know prior to your visit.  I chose TRAVEL and they listed 12 travel deals. There are several nice package deals to check out.

Business Insider’s List

Business Insider has put together a rankings of the world’s 40 best cities to live in, and have provided a truly global list of exciting, fascinating cities. The cities are ranked over a variety of categories, including economic activity, political power, influence, and quality of life. In the end, here are the 40 that really matter and should be on your senior must visit list. Dubai ranked 31st.

Which cities have the most “buzz”?

What does it take to be rated great, or more specifically, because this is a travel blog, to be a great city? Writers around the world usually are asked to rate the cities where they live in six categories: architecture/cityscape, arts and culture, buzz, food and drink, quality of life, and world status. I am curious about “buzz” myself.

Meanwhile…back to Dubai.  jeb
