Dubai is one of the most popular cities among the tourists, it is growing speedily and people prefer to live in this beautiful city because of its diverse culture. The city is beautiful in the day but more charming at night. As there is the concept of night life at Dubai, so people mostly go out at night for celebrations and other fun filled activities with families or friends.
