Sometimes referred to as “the Venice of the Gulf,” Dubai is a bustling, cosmopolitan city and a popular tourist destination with a wide selection of upscale shops. In the famous Gold Souk, in Deira, more than 200 shops sell gold jewelry and bullion. Extravagantly designed luxury hotels, some built on artificial islets, line the city’s shore. Dubai hosts an annual high-stakes horse race and major tennis and golf tournaments. The city is also home to Zayed University and the Dubai Museum, housed in an old fort.
