Where East meets West and the sky is the limit. Dubai is a city of superlatives, of world records even. Every year, millions of tourists travel to this thriving city to see the world’s tallest building, the world’s largest man-made island, the world’s largest performing fountain and the world’s largest mall. Many have said it must be seen to be believed. Originally a small trading port which largely depended on fishing and pearl diving, the desert oasis of Dubai has transformed into a global metropolis in just 50 years. When the United Arab Emirates discovered oil offshore in the Sixties, the authorities soon realised this oil wouldn’t last for more than a few decades which is why the city state has since invested in diversifying its economy and trade, making them more stable. Dubai’s government has also worked hard to become a financial, business and tourist hub.
