Etramping is taking Dubai!
Etramping has finally made it to Dubai – a glamorous city located in the United Arab Emirates.
For those who have not been or have not heard of it, Dubai is mainly known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene.
In today’s post we would like to share a few pictures taken during our first stay in Dubai. Hope they will amaze you the same way this city amazed us!

The view of Dubai seen from Burj Khalifa – an 830m-tall tower that dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline is simply amazing. It is the tallest building in the world and your breath will be taken away for a long time.
Dubai has emerged as a global city and business hub of the Middle East. The richness can be experienced at each step you make in the city.
As Wikipedia reports:
“Dubai has 18 completed and topped-out buildings that rise at least 300 metres (984 ft) and 73 completed and topped-out buildings that rise at least 200 metres (656 ft) in height.”
Dubai is ranked sixth in the world with 248 buildings rising at least 100 metres (330 ft) in height!
Just look at this panoramic view of Dubai. Isn’t stunning?
Culture in Dubai is rooted in Islamic traditions that form UAE National’s lifestyles.
Dubai is famously known as the entertainment capital of the Middle East which attracts many party lovers from all over the world.
Although Dubai promotes such an image, it still forbids the nationals that practice Islam to indulge in any of the entertaining services offered, mostly partying in clubs and drinking alcohol.
