Dubai is the largest city of the United Arab Emirates, the administrative capital of the Emirate of Dubai, the trading and financial centre of the Middle East and a major tourist destination. Dubai is situated on the coast of the Arabian Gulf to the northeast of the capital Abu Dhabi, near the city of Sharjah. In 2010, its population was estimated at 2,262,000.
Oil was discovered near Dubai in 1966 to launch its rocketing development. Local oil reserves are smaller than those of the neighbouring regions of the Gulf but are effectively used to their full capacity.
The recent building boom in Dubai is similar in scale to that of the largest Chinese towns. The following fact speaks for itself: one-fifth of all tower cranes in the world are located between Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The biggest construction projects include the world’s tallest building, Burj Dubai, the artificial Palm Islands, The World Archipelago and Ski Dubai, the first indoor ski resort to open in the Middle East on 22.5 thousand square metres (or three football fields) covered with snow all year round. Your eyes are not deceiving you: Dubai lives in the future!
The dry subtropical climate offers beautiful weather from mid-September to mid-May with warm sunny days and cool nights. Light clothing is fine for most of the year except winter evenings, the best time to wear a sweater, cardigan or jacket.
