Video – 36 Hours in Dubai

With all the bad news we hear from the Middle East and North Africa it is good to see an Arab city prosper. Not since Baghdad, centuries ago, when it was the focal point of the Islamic Golden Age that an Arab city managed to build itself as the world’s destination for  both tourists and expats.

  1. Have you been? Some of Samer’s family lives in Dubai, but, sadly, he wasn’t able to get a visa in order to visit them in the last several months. He wants to see his family badly!

    1. No, I haven’t been there. I would love to visit though.
      I know that the Arab Gulf countries are making it extremely difficult for Syrians to enter their countries.
