The United Arab Emirates - and in particular Dubai - attract more than more than 21 million vacationers per year (quite a few honeymooners among them) - with a rich diversity of sometimes astounding offerings - much of them modern and man-made - and a more liberal atmosphere than in much of the rest of the Middle East (though, for example, women should still take care to dress "modestly," in attire that covers their knees). 

Attractions include magnificent skyscrapers like Burj Khalifa (currently the world’s tallest tower); the dazzling choreographed Dubai Fountain; excellent biodiversity at Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary; Dubai Frame, a bridge to past and present; the artificial archipelago Palm Islands; sun-drenched Jumeira Beach; and many more. And since 2016 another remarkable manmade attraction has been Riverland, a free-of-charge zone people cross to get to the Polynesian-themed Lapita Hotel, Bollywood Park, Hollywood-inspire theme park Motiongate, and Legoland Dubai. Divided into four areas - the French Village, India Gate, the Boardwalk and the Peninsula - linked by artificial rivers and canals, Riverland provides a look at the world beyond Dubai's native Arabian Gulf culture.
