Me: Dubai, by far! Dubai is a city in the United Arab Emirates. It is known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture, and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, a 2723 feet-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.
