WELCOME TO DUBAI 2019 

THE CITY

Dubai is located on the Eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, in the south west corner of the Arabian Gulf. It is extremely well known for its warm hospitality and rich cultural heritage, and the Emirati people are welcoming and generous in their approach to visitors.

With year-round sunshine, intriguing deserts, beautiful beaches, luxurious hotels and shopping malls, fascinating heritage attractions and a thriving business community, Dubai receives millions of leisure and business visitors each year from around the world.

 

Dubai is tolerant and cosmopolitan and all visitors are welcome. However, Islam is a way of life in the city, and therefore tourists should adopt a certain level of cultural and religious sensitivity for the duration of their stay.

Saruq Al-Hadid site is considered one of the most important archaeological discoveries in Dubai and the region, as it offers much of the UAE old past, especially during the Iron and Bronze Ages ،which confirms that the UAE civilisation extends to 5 thousand years.

 

The past few decades have witnessed incredible growth throughout all sectors of the Dubai economy.

Dubai’s economy is no longer reliant on oil, but is more diversified, relying heavily on trade, services and finance sectors.

With its central geographic location between Asian and European markets, Dubai has worked hard to establish itself as an integral part of the global trade mechanism.

Its central location has also allowed Dubai to become a popular and accessible tourist destination.
