This is the region of the world that has captured my attention the most. Mostly Dubai, one of the seven United Arab Emirates. Land of the superlatives, the city-state attracts me as much for its richness and modernity as for its tradition and beautiful landscapes. Board with me on this new trip.

When I board, unfortunately I can't carry everyone in the suitcase.
So through my YouTube channel, I decided to bring you a little of what I saw up close on this last trip to Dubai.
In about six minutes, accompany me with landscapes ranging from the arid beauty we find in the desert region to the glimpse of the future that allows us to see the impressive skyscrapers.
Our stopover starts at Burj Al Arab, “the tower of Arabia”, one of the most luxurious hotels in the world.
The heat inspires a delightful ride to the Wild Wadi Waterpark, the largest outdoor water park in the world outside the United States.
Anyone who knows me knows that a stop at the Gold Souk, the gold market, is more than mandatory.
It is estimated that about 10 tons of gold pass through its alleys daily.
With so much valuable stuff out there, you can't be left out.
They are bracelets, necklaces, rings, diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires and many other sparkles.
So many to know so as not to get lost.
In the most curious part of the trip, I invite you to accompany an unusual camel race on the Al Wathba track.
In each match, who leads the animals to victory (or resounding failure) are little robot jockeys, guided from a distance by radio.
Who operates them are their owners, who ride in a car train along the track in every race.
In closing, I chose to share a desert safari.
Its vastness is part of the formation of the Arab people and to know it, walking barefoot through the dunes at sunset, is a unique opportunity to understand a little more what we feel here.
Embark on the following video. And have a nice trip!
