About Dubai

  • Dubai at a Glance
Dubai refers to one of the seven emirates that constitute the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the eastern Arabian Peninsula. Dubai is the second largest Emirate in the United Arab Emirates and probably the most well-known. Under the guidance of Sheikh Mohamed bin Rashid bin Maktoum, Prime Minister and Vice President of the UAE, the Emirate has built a reputation as one of the most important and vibrant cities in the Middle East.
  • Dubai Tourism
Tourism in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) is an important part of the Dubai government's strategy to maintain the flow of foreign cash into the emirate. Dubai's lure for tourists is based mainly on shopping, but also on its possession of other ancient and modern attractions.

Dubai is the most populous emirate of the seven emirates of United Arab Emirates. It is distinct from other members of the UAE in that revenues from petroleum and natural gas account for only 6% of its gross domestic product. A majority of the emirate's revenues are from the Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZ) and now, increasingly, from tourism.
