The desert Emirate of Dubai has long maintained a reputation as one of the Middle East’s most attractive states. Amongst its many attractions a recent addition which will appeal to anyone interested in motor sports is Dubai Motor City. This is a multi-component complex which features several state of the art developments.
Taking pride of place here is the Dubai Autodrome, a world-class track which was opened for use in 2004. This superb racing track has been certified by the FIA, the worldwide governing body for motor sports.
Another key development at the complex is the Business Park MotorCity which features a number of high rise office buildings and retail showrooms for automobiles as well as other motor related retailers.
Additionally this groundbreaking development offers residential areas, including Green Community MotorCity, a residential compound with townhouses, family villas and handsome bungalows in addition to luxurious apartments. There is also the UpTown MotorCity, a comparatively low-rise apartment compound which also includes schools, parks and recreational facilities.
Today you will also find an array of stores and retail centres here, including numerous restaurants, an expansive supermarket and other commercial outlets. F1-X Dubai, an elaborate Formula 1 themed park was also planned, but is still currently in the construction phase.
Still, the complex offers many recreational activities which will draw the attention of all visitors regardless of age or preferences. You will be able to enjoy Laser Tag, karting, racing and cycling, in addition to many leisure and dining options.
One of Dubai’s most renowned attributes is its sensational shopping opportunities.

It is generally thought that the best things to buy in Dubai are textiles, gold and electronics, with a plentiful selection on offer. The Emirate offers many imposing classy malls, and in contrast, traditional marketplaces like the Gold Souk and the Spice Souk. With all this on offer, a visit to Dubai will always be worthwhile.
