Sunshine and shopping
Imagine to live in the country with year-round sunshine,wouldn't it be a dream come true? Where beaches are amazing, deserts are present and great shopping malls and splendid hotels...you know where am I going with this? To Dubai, which is one of the seven emirates that makes United Arab Emirates, it has become more like independent state, being the most modern and progressive one in UAE, offering unbelievable things in tourism, it's all about your pleasure.
Even if it definitely won't be a low budget trip, Dubai is more than worth to see. A unique essentially desert city with liberal policies, that has grown a lot thanks to excellent tourist amenities. Drinking in public places is forbidden but alcohol is available to tourists in licensed bars and restaurants, almost always located in 5stars hotels, you have to fallow the Islamic laws.
Once you will get to this billions worth city, you will be confused,there are many Indians and Philippines, because Indians are known as the fathers of development of Dubai, Dubai wasn't always rich, before they discovered the exploration of oil, Indians supplied technology to develop Dubai.
Dubai has become a very international city, migrants are from all over the world, from Pakistan, Philippines, Bangladesh and India mostly, but also many other nationalities, seeking for better work opportunity and sunshine at the same place. The recent development in Dubai started only in 1833, when Bani Yas family left Abu Dhabi to settle in Dubai, actually they still rule the emirates today. Today, Abu Dhabi and Dubai complement each other, being the centre of oil industry.
Small community of 800 people who lived by trading in fish and pearls, the farming of camels and goats, that all changed once the oil was discovered. By the late 1870, Dubai had become the main port in the region, bringing trade from Iran, India and East Africa. Dubai is so rich , that millions of leisure and business visitors each year coming to the city , bringing money and spending money in Dubai.
Another reason for everyone to enjoy it is the sunny and warm climate that is more than ideal for tourism, if you like you go shopping, if you are tired you lie on the beach, and if you are bored you go to excellent restaurants and clubs. Don't be scared of August and July where temperature reaches 45 degrees, everything in Dubai is air conditioned.
