The Middle East over the last few years has become a popular destination to travel; it's a paradox with cultural crossroads between east and west, the region mixes modern culture with history and adventure. I've travelled to Dubai one of seven emirates that make up the UAE, United Arab Emirates, a country that only came into existence roughly forty one years ago.  With world-class shopping and entertainment, over-the-top opulence and skyline buildings rising from the dunes.
