Images from a recent jaunt to Dubai….

Dubai is a place of contrasts.  It’s both old and new.  It’s modern and conservative.  It’s a place where you’ll find high fashion and high tea.  And a place where the golden desert sands meet the white sands of the city’s beaches.

So why am I writing about Dubai?  This blog is, after all, called Reeftraveler.  Well, sometimes I travel to places unrelated to diving or snorkeling.  It doesn’t happen often, so I hope you’ll bear with me and allow me to veer off topic from time to time.

And for the record, Dubai has wreck diving, but the visibility is very poor.  Reef diving can be found in the emirate of Fujairah, a two hour drive from Dubai.

Where is the most unique place you’ve been diving?  I’d love to hear your stories.
