I have been living in Dubai for the past 2 years and 27 days. Its been a fantastic ride so far. Watching the birth of this new city the following pages will be a diary of events, news and information for all you people who are planning to move here soon or just got bitten by the dubai travel bug. I will also be posting photos of this growing city as long as this post is alive. Let me have your comments, suggestions and tips to make this site as informative as you would like.

A bustling metropolis, Dubai is the commercial nerve-center of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), an Arabian Gulf country and federation of seven emirates - Abu Dhabi , the capital city, Dubai, Sharjah, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah and Ajman.
The second largest emirate in the UAE, Dubai is located in the northern part of the country and stretches over 115 km (72 miles) on the Gulf coast. With an area of 3,885 sq km (2,428 sq miles) and a population of 1.3 million (2004 estimate), Dubai is an amazing meeting place of the East and West, and fascinating the world with its famed four S's - the Sun, Sand, Sea and Shopping.
