Dubai celebrates its independence

Dubai is a place now more readily associated with the building of ever higher skyscrapers, even bigger shopping malls and hotels more grand and exclusive than the last.

But for the yearly National Day festival, or Al-Eid Al Watani in Arabic, all of the construction work is pushed down the agenda as the emirates celebrates their independence from Britain.

The buzz and excitement which characterises this destination is added to by the daily firework displays and colourful street parades during the festival.

The day is a national holiday, in which local families often dine out and enjoy the festivities together.

December 2nd is the day which official marks the formation of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). On this day in 1971 Britain left the Persian Gulf and Dubai, Abu Dhabi and five other emirates, so called because of their particular dynastic style of government, formed the country as it is today.
