Pictures that will make you want to move to Dubai

The young city has a lot to offer, but we’ll let you decide for yourself with these pictures

You have to admit that Dubai deserves high recognition for transforming itself from a desert to a metropolitan wonderland. We say wonderland because it has a dreamy aspect that allows you to swim in the Arabian Gulf in the morning and barbecue in the desert dunes at lunch time before enjoying views of its Downtown and Dubai Marina skylines at night time. We don’t know about you, but that’s the perfect description of a city we’d want to live in. And maybe after you see the following Instagram pictures, if you don’t already live here, you’ll agree with us too.
