Dubai or Dubayy (in Arabic), is the second largest of the seven emirate and probably the most well-known emirate of the United Arab Emirates. The most popular entry point for tourist in the country. A dynamic business centre, a tourist paradise that offers more attractions, shopping, fine dining and quality hotels to stay.
Dubai is ruled by the Al Maktoum family. The ruler of Dubai is HH Sheikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum who is also the Prime Minister of the federation of UAE. The crown prince is HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Dubai houses the world’s biggest, the world’s tallest and the first constructions in the world. Dubai’s dynamics are always transient and ever-changing with its constant urge to construct something better and bigger than the previous. If there was a Palm Island, Nakheel thought of the World Island. Burj Al Arab seemed too timid when Burj Khalifa cropped up, distancing itself to being a loner in the crowd. In a single day, tourist can experience many of Dubai has to offer from dusty villages to luxurious residential districts, rugged mountains to awe-inspiring sand dunes, sandy beaches and lush green parks, to modern and extraordinary shopping malls.
