I visited Dubai for a few days as a stop-over on my way to Australia in May 2001. Here is a small selection of my photographs (please note NO trains - sorry !) I really enjoyed Dubai - it was an interesting mix of old and new. It was also very safe ! The total lack of serious security measures in the Gold souq was an real eye opener.

With the wooden hulled boats lined up at the quayside the modern architecture of Dubai makes an interesting contrast. May 2001
