Techno Scene in Dubai
In the search for great Techno, this time, we're traveling all the way to the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula on the coast of the Persian Gulf, to the capital of the Emirate of Dubai, and the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates.
There's a reason why Dubai is considered Western Asia's business heart. What is today known as a cosmopolitan metropolis and one of the world's most popular tourist destinations used to be just a tiny fishing village back in the 18th century.
Today, Dubai is known to be the second home tallest building on the planet - the Burj Khalifa, many luxurious five-star hotels, massive shopping malls, charming restaurants serving delicious food, fancy gyms, giant aquariums, gorgeous beach resorts, and so much more.
But, although wealth, expensive cars, and dazzling gold are what most people associate Dubai with, this gorgeous city is way more than the capital of glitz and glam. Dubai is also known for its traditional villages, the vast dunes, the fantastic Arabian desert, the breathtaking Grand Mosque, the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood, the impressive Dubai Museum, the iconic artificial archipelago Palm Jumeirah, the largest gold bazaar in the world Deira Gold Souk, the Global Village Culture & Entertainment pavilion, etc.
The list is genuinely neverending, and it includes Dubai's lively nightlife as well. This also means excellent Techno clubs for any Techno tourist that visits this place, and this is our list of suggestions:
