The United Arab Emirates (UAE) consists of seven Emirates’ and Dubai is the most popular destination of them all. It is situated on the southern shore of the Persian Gulf on the Arabian Peninsula. Dubai is the second largest Emirate after Abu Dhabi and is usually recognised as the ‘Pearl of the Persian Gulf’.
Dubai’s population is estimated at 1.5 million, a huge difference from 183,200 in 1975. Dubai is one of the most multicultural cities in the world with the expatriate community covering most of the population, with less than 10% of the total being national Emiratis.
The state of Dubai is commonly referred to as a city because it has been distinguished as the most modern and cosmopolitan environments in the Emirates, especially due to its rapid technological transformation over the past few decades.
Dubai is a landmark for innovation; some might even compare it to the computer game Sim-city where expansion has no limit. The city boasts remarkable skyscrapers, such as the world’s current tallest building, the Burj Dubai, and is also in the process of developing one of the most technologically advanced buildings in the world – The Pad. This is based on the idea of an iPod; this residential tower is set to be embedded with the latest gadgets that will have the power to change interior design and window views to almost anything imaginable.
Sheikh Mohammed is the ruler of Dubai. It is said that he is primarily responsible for making Dubai what it is today; a modern high flying city thriving from commercial investments. Sheikh Mohammed’s most significant business proposal was the introduction of Dubai’s world class airline, the Emirates.
The city of Dubai gains higher returns from its tourism unlike many of the other Emirates, as revenue from oil only accounts for around 6% of Dubai’s gross domestic product. The city’s oil is decreasing by the year and therefore cannot be depended upon. That is partly the reason why there has been a construction boom in order to diversify its economy in the expansion of commercial and corporate activity. Dubai has therefore become a world famous city through innovative real estate projects, sports events, conferences and Guinness records.
Although Dubai has been transformed into a man-made hi-tech city, it still has a strong Islamic culture with a stretch of historical buildings by the Creek. Whilst some may view this as a conflict of old meeting new, it is also considered to be a captivating city that offers both extremes; a traditional past interlinked with modern day
Dubai Culture Culture in Dubai is rooted in Islamic traditions that form UAE National's lifestyles. However, the UAE is tolerant and welcoming to foreigners who do not practice the religion of Islam. Expatriates are free to practice their own religion, alcohol is served in hotels and the dress code is liberal. Women don't face discrimination. Courtesy and hospitality are one of the many virtues of Dubai. Rulers are keen to maintain their culture and do so through a number of practices. One is promoting sporting events that are representative of their past. Falconry, camel racing and dhow sailing are still popular in Dubai. The official language of the country is Arabic, however most people in and out of the workplace communicate in English. There are so many different nationalities in Dubai, English finds common ground with most people. The majority of road and shop signs, restaurant menus etc. are in both English and Arabic. Dubai is a cosmopolitan city and visitors can dress however they like. Still, a good amount of respect for local customs is appreciated. In deference to local customs and norms it is a good idea for visitors not to wear very short, tight clothing, at least until such time as they are comfortable with the city. UAE nationals usually wear their traditional dress. For men this is the dishdasha or khandura, a white full-length shirt-dress. It is worn with a white or red checked headdress known as a gutra. In public women wear the black abaya, a long black robe that covers their normal clothes. They also wear a headscarf.
迪拜是(迪拜市（英语：Dubai 阿拉伯语：دبيّ）)是阿联酋第二大酋长国，面积3885平方公里，占阿联酋总面积的5%。2002年人口达111.2万。迪拜的经济实力在阿联酋也排第二位，阿联酋70%左右的非石油贸易集中在迪拜，所以习惯上迪拜被称为阿联酋的“贸易之都”，它也是整个中东地区的转口贸易中心。 迪拜拥有世界上第一家七星级酒店、全球最大的购物中心、世界最大的室内滑雪场，源源不断的石油和重要的贸易港口地位，为迪拜带来了巨大的财富，如今的迪拜成了奢华的代名词。
Guangzhou, the South Gate of China, is a prosperous metropolis full of vigor.

Zhujiang (The Pearl River), the third largest river of China, runs through Guangzhou and is navigable to the South China Sea. Situated in such an excellent geographical region, Guangzhou is called China's South Gate.

Guangzhou is a beautiful city in China, but it’s so noisy and crowded. The population of Guangzhou is about seven million two hundred thousand.
Guangzhou is a good place to visit. In Guangzhou there are many beautiful parks, museums, temples, etc. So many people like going to visit Guangzhou. And you can eat many famous and delicious foods in Guangzhou, dimsum is the most delicious food, I think. Guangzhou isn’t cold in winter and it’s quite hot in summer. Guangzhou has a long history of about two thousand one hundred years. I like Guangzhou very much.
Saving water is very important for us. There will be fewer fresh water in the future. We must avoid any chance of wasting water. We should take actions in or daily life. For example, take shorter water at any time, leave the sink running. Every time you use water, you should turns off taps after using. We need to be careful and save a little bit of water for years and years.
A pale, uneven, parched world, where a motor-car rocks and lurches and churns in sand. A world pallid with dryness, in human with a faint taste of alkali. Like driving in the bed of a great sea that dried up unthinkable ages ago, and now is drier than any other dryness, yet still reminiscent of the bottom of the sea, sand hills sinking, and straight, cracked mesas, like cracks in the dry-mud bottom of the sea. If we don’t save water,the last drop pf water will be our tears.

Last week, I have three days off, so I planned to travel to Guangzhou. During the three days, I witnessed so many things, I open my vision and gain the knowledge. The trip to Guangzhou makes me realize that I could go to anywhere by my own.
Before I went to Guangzhou, I made many plans, I searched the Internet, just to make sure that I wouldn’t get lost, because I never went to travel by myself. Going to the strange place, at first, I was very afraid, I tried hard to remember the road, sometimes I dared not to go far away. But I found the way, I realized that every main site would have the subway site, so if I took the metro, I could go back the place nearby.
As I got familiar with the road, I went to many sites by the metro, it was so fast and convenient, I could see many sites in a day. Guangzhou is so big, I saw many foreigners, it was full of vitality. The college town is so big and clean, I love it.

If you come to Guangzhou. I strongly recommend the Canton Tower, the landmark of Guangzhou. You can get a bird’s eye view of Guangzhou.
Canton Tower (also known as Guangzhou TV Sightseeing Tower is a tower near Chigang Pagoda, Haizhu District, Guangzhou, Guangdong, China. It was topped-out in 2009 and became operational on September 29, 2010 for the 2010 Asian Games
The Canton Tower, in Chinese called Guǎngzhōu tǎ (also called Guangzhou TV Sightseeing Tower) is the second tallest structure in the world after Burj Dubai in Dubai, UAE. The Canton Tower is designed by the Dutch architects Mark Hemel and Barbara Kuit of Information Based Architecture together with engineers Arup, the international design, engineering and business consulting firm headquartered in London, UK. 2004 Information Based Architecture and Arup won the international competition, in which many of the world's larger architectural offices participated. The same year the IBA - Arup team in Amsterdam developed the tower's concept design. In later stages IBA cooperated mainly with the local Chinese offices of Arup and a Local Design Institute. The tower although not fully completed yet is since 1 October 2010 open to the public.
For a long time the city-government of Guangzhou wavered to decide on the Guangzhou TV Sightseeing Tower's name. On 29 September 2010 finally came the decision. On this day it was officially announced that it was simply going to be called Canton Tower, after the city's former name.
We all came to this world alone. Facing the uncertain future, we need not only the guidance of parents and teachers, but also the friends who can support each other and move forward. However, can everyone become our real good friends? If you have a friend, happy things, he shares with you; Sad things, he shared for you; He gives you encouragement when you are discouraged. When lonely, he gives you warmth……Needless to say, he must be your real friend.
If you have a friend, you can drink together, have fun together and call each other brothers. However, there is no equal treatment and sincere communication between each other, and even there is another purpose, so you can be sure that he is not your true friend and is not worth your sincere efforts. Good friends can encourage us to go forward and benefit us immensely. Improper friends may bring us many bad habits and may make us regret for life. When we grow up, we inevitably care about what others think of us. We are most afraid that our friends will not accept us and make us lonely. Therefore, sometimes in order to gain recognition, we may deliberately cater to the habits and needs of our friends. Therefore, we must choose our friends carefully so as not to be used by people with ulterior motives.

Guangzhou citizens friendly welcome people from all the country even all over the world with their delicately cooked cuisines. This is a direct way to show their hospitality. In short, Guangzhou is a fantastic city that is worthy of visiting.
The weather in Guangzhou is very good. There are four seasons in Guangzhou. They are spring, summer, autumn and winter.
It’s warm and wet in spring. And it’s very hot in summer. Autumn is from September to November. It’s very dry in autumn. You should drink more water. Winter is my favourite season. You just wear a jacket or a coat. Unlike many other countries. It’s not too cold in Guangzhou. Many people like travelling to Guangzhou in winter. I go skating and cycling every day. My grandpa and grandma usually stay in Guangzhou in winter. Because it’s warm.
I like the weather in Guangzhou. What about you?
My hometown and Guangzhou are different in many ways. Firstly, people in Guangzhou speak several languages. For example, local citizens speak Cantonese, and the immigrants speak Mandarin. And there are many foreigners and oversea people living in Guangzhou. They mainly speak English. Once I traveled in Guangzhou, I found it a little difficult to understand Cantonese. Thus I tried to communicate with them in Mandarin. Sometimes when I met some foreigners, I also chatted with them in English. However, people in my hometown always speak local dialect.
Secondly, people in my hometown are selfish, because they only care about their own benefits. But people in Guangzhou are much more generous. They are willing to help others when people are in trouble.
Thirdly, Guangzhou is in the south of China. With Pearl River running across the city, Guangzhou enjoys a warm and wet climate. While my hometown is deep in the mountains, and the weather is so changeable. Sometimes it's as cold as winter, and sometimes it's as hot as summer in a day, which make me feel so irritated.
Besides, the food in my hometown is too hot and spicy. But Cantonese food is much lighter. It's neither too salty nor too light.
Finally, the environment in my hometown is polluted seriously, because of the tail gas emitted by private cars. And the waste gas and water from factories is also a main cause of pollution. Nevertheless, in Guangzhou, trees and flowers are planted everywhere, which can fight against the pollutants and provide us with fresh air. So the sky is fairly clean and bright. We will feel pleasant when getting around in that city. That's why I get so tired of my hometown and how much I dream of living in Guangzhou!
An unforget holiday
How time flies! I’m fifteen years now. During the long time, there was one thing that I will never forget.
When I was 9 years old, my family took the bus to my grandparents’.
In the bus, I had a good seat. At 7:30, the bus came to a village. A woman got on with a baby in her arms. At that time, there was no seat. But she must look after her baby carefully. She had to stand next to me. I wanted to stand up and let her sit down, but I was afraid of hearing the other people say “That girl want to be praised.”
I looked around. Most people were looking out of the windows and some were sleeping. Suddenly, a little boy behind me stood up and made room for the woman. She said "Thank you very much" with a big smile. The boy smiled, too. When I told my cousin about it after that, he said "The child is the father of a man." I'm very ashamed. Why couldn’t I do the same thing as the little boy did?
From that I learn that we should do our best to help people who need help.
If everyone makes a contribution to helping others, the world will become much more beautiful!
