THE HISTORY OF DUBAI AND ITS ATTRACTIONS


In 1980, the royals of Dubai made the main source with oil. The small desert town was previously known for its pearl exports and fishing industry.
Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, who ruled from 1958-1990, largely has the merit of making the dream come true in Dubai. But it is his son, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, governor since 2006, who developed the city.
Sheik Mohammed's infinite ambition embodies Dubai. He encourages the creativity and extravagance that push tourists to a city in a harsh climate, far from other cultural capitals.
Dubai is perhaps most famous for its seven-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab, a luxury sail-shaped suite abundantly decorated with 22-karat gold.

For some, the hotel is Dubai's only attraction - a vacation in itself.

Dubai will soon boast the largest shopping mall in the world, the longest indoor ski slope and the largest theme park.

Announcements of new projects in Dubai are usually preceded by such superlatives as "tallest in the world" or "most luxurious on Earth". But at the base of everything, the flashy design surprises everyone. Bedouin culture is known for its hospitality, and Dubai lives up to its reputation.
