Tourism in Dubai
This is one of the seven emirates making up the country known as the United Arab Emirates. Although it isn’t the nation’s capital, Dubai, where tradition and modernity go hand in hand, has succeeded in transforming itself into an international reference point and headquarters of a large number of multinational organizations. Skyscrapers exist side by side with the most conservative Arab roots. It’s a Western port in the Middle East, a key focal point for foreign investment and an important centre of cultural interest and leisure.
The population of Dubai encompasses 1.5 million inhabitants, including Arabs and Westerners. The vast majority of the residents of this city are foreigners, as they cannot become citizens, so in a sense, everyone is just passing through. Although the official language is Arabic, Dubai is a modern-day Babel where you’ll find people of all nationalities serving locals and foreigners, alike. The city places great emphasis on industrial, urban and technological developments, which are its primary sources of investment and employment. The city’s offering is rounded out with leisure and services. The Dubai International Airport is the main headquarters of the national airline Emirates, making it the entryway into the country.
