About the city 🌇

Dubai is a sumptuous city with skyscrapers, harbours and sandy beaches packed with tourism thanks to the sunny climate. Like much of the Persian Gulf Coast, Dubai has a warm year-round climate.

The temperature is high during the summer months and moderate for the rest of the year. The coldest winter month is usually January with temperatures of around 15°C, while the hottest summer month is July with highs of more than 40°C.

Because of its large expatriate population, the circumstances do feel oriental from the Middle East with a western touch. In other words, religious affiliation is not a prominent aspect of urban life. Islam is the majority religion, but churches and Hindu temples are built side by side in this unique fusion of cultures. It has helped to make the food culture in the city amazing, with cuisines from all over the world being gathered in one place.

It goes on to say that in addition to the endless selection of food places, fancy bars and the beautiful sight of the Burj Khalifa, you have all sorts of opportunities for shopping in the world's largest shopping center and variety of stores. A nice blend of no-tax and cheap petrol quickly turned Dubai's streets into a supercar event show. Your Instagram will certainly not miss any sprinkle after studying in Dubai.

Dubai is especially known for being a safe place with minimal crime, making it comfortable to experience the city's sights no matter the time of day. In addition to its tourism, the city is known as a business hub, where administrative efficiency and openness to businesses have encouraged astonishing growth. As a hot spot for people from all over the world in a bulging business district, you have the opportunity to create a personal network that can take you to places in the world you never dreamed of.

The western area of Dubai enjoys small stretches of bright sandy beaches that have helped to culminate the city's tourism industry. Dubai has tried to increase the city's limited seafronts, and in the absence of natural offshore islands, they eventually decided to build giant man-made islands off the city's coast. The most famous of these is palm jumeirah, which has the shape of a palm tree. Another attraction also includes the "World Islands," a cluster of small islands that are supposed to depict a world map from above.

There is endless of elements of Dubai that can be mentioned but nothing is the same as going there and experience it for yourself.

Curtin University in Dubai has an incredibly good selection of student accommodations as well as professional help with these. In addition, it is free to apply for them and all the homes around campus are fully furnished.
