Dubai is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates, with a population count of 3.4 million residents. It aims to be the main business and transport hub in Western Asia. Dubai flourished over the years, becoming one of the wealthiest cities in the world, partly caused by the oil and tourism revenue that it generates each year. Nowadays, less than 5% of the emirate’s revenue is from oil; Dubai’s economy now heavily relies on incomes from tourism, trade, aviation, financial services and real estate. The city is most well-known for its sightseeing attractions, such as the Burj Khalifa, which is the world’s tallest building, and its shopping malls, such as the Dubai Mall, which is the world’s largest shopping center.
Apart from these famous attractions, people can explore various additional luxuries in this vibrant city. In the Burj Al Arab, visitors can dine at an exquisite restaurant, while enjoying a great view. The Dubai Fountain is another great sight to see; this beautiful attraction is the world’s largest performing fountain, offering free shows for all visitors.
For those that wish to see the contrast between the new and old side of Dubai, the Dubai Frame is a good way to experience this; these two 150-meter towers allow you to view the entire city. Of course, there is also the opportunity to personally experience this difference; visiting the Al Bastakiya, which is a historic district, also known as Old Dubai, will be an eye-opener for those wishing to see the ‘’old’’ side of this city.
Other interesting stops include Alserkal Avenue, which is a cultural district filled with contemporary art galleries, and Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House, which is a historic building and former residential quarters of the former ruler of Dubai.
