The name of the second-large emirate and its capital of the same name has come from the Arab name thresh one of species of a locust - a saranchushka (in Arab a locust - "dibb", and the diminutive-hypocoristic derivative word "Dubai". How it sounds in Russian - "saranchushka"). Perhaps, this name is connected with the fact that there was a place of periodic reproduction of a locust which loves the damp soil. Judging by the kept name of the urban area "the Drill Dubai" ("the Saranchovy well"), here once was a well. By the way, the locust is immortalized in the name of one more emirat city - Dibby on east coast.
Other district of Dubai - Deyra on a local dialect means just "settlement".Still quite recently, some there fifty years ago very few people could assume all that the tiny small village Dubai will turn into the city which will blow up silence of sandy Arabian deserts. This city as if breathes future - here all very best including hotels.
The most popular beach of Dubai - Jumeyrah: sand easy as if down, very white, the coast flat, it is possible to float quietly, enjoying warm water and the tender sun. For those to whom idle pastime has bothered ashore aquaparks are constructed. In Dubai their two - "Drim Lend" and "Wilde of Vadi". The first - the biggest on the Middle East also has the extensive, being buried in verdure territory. Here it is good to come with small children - visitors not so much and to the magnificent beach of Jumeyrah no distance. In the second aquapark all most modern water entertainments are concentrated. There is, for example, such unique attraction: the wave takes out you vertically on ten-meter height, and then, with bated breath, in a moment you already rush promptly down.
