Dubai is a city in the United Arab Emirates, located within
the emirate. The emirate of Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the
Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. It has
the largest population in the UAE (2,106,177) and the second-largest land
territory by area (4,114 km2) after Abu Dhabi. Is one of the few cities in the
world that has undergone such a rapid transformation - from a humble beginning
as a pearl-diving Centre - to one of the fastest growing cities on earth. Dubai
today is a tourism, trade and logistics hub and has earned itself the
reputation of being the ‘gateway between the east and the west’. It is also
considered as the dynamic nucleus of the Arabian Gulf region.
Home to just over 2 million people from more than 200
nationalities, Dubai is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world.
Living in Dubai has a lot to offer. It is safe, politically stable, centrally
located, and has a good education system and healthcare facilities, modern
infrastructure and much more. The sun shines almost every day, the shopping and
leisure facilities are impressive, and the salaries are tax-free. Living in
Dubai is exciting, something new and different happens ever so often. Just when
you think you’ve seen it all, a new project is announced, whether it is the
launch of a sports stadium, a mega commercial tower, a residential enclave or
yet another shopping mall. Dubai is constantly on the move, striving for
greater heights and more facilities and comfort for its residents and visitors.
Dubai is without a doubt a destination of the 21st century.
