Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.


Sightseeing is the key to any Tourist place. Visual sense stimulates the entire industry. Tourism is travel for pleasure or business. In theory and practice, tourism is the business of attracting, accommodating, and entertaining tourists. Tourism may be international or within the traveller’s country. The World Tourism Organization defines tourism more generally. It terms tourism as “beyond the common perception of tourism as being limited to holiday activity only“. The Sightseeing tourists are the ones “travelling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for leisure“.
