Dubai is a city (emirate) in the OAU. Originally, Dhubai was a place where the nomadic herders, fishermen, and pearl fishermen met. Today it is a major trading and business center. Its also a great place to relax. The modern, updated standards are side by side with ancient culture and archaeology. In keeping with Islamic mores, there is a simplicity of preceding centuries manners.

In the early 19th century, Dhubai was a small village enclosed by walls. ×The population was 1,200 people. In 1833, people from the neighboring city of Aba dhabi began to move to Dawai. This move was a turning point in the history of the city of Dubai. The citys trade began to develop at an accelerated pace. Soon, the liberal attitude of the rulers and societies toward trade attracted large numbers of merchants from Persia and India. Now it was a copolitical, economically prosperous city.

In the 1970s, for the then-disadvantaged UAE, there was an economic miracle. Oil fields were discovered here. From then on, Dubai became a tourist destination that attracted thousands of travelers from all over the world. Tourists are attracted first and foremost by todays hotels, which are unlike any other in the world. For example, the Hotel Parus, built in 1999, is the epitome of luxurious living. Maddinat Hotel is an entire city with its own transport: special boats transport people by canal. Theres also the sky-scraping Burj Khalifa, which stands 828 meters high and offers a view of the entire city from its observation deck. It has everything that can capture a tourists imagination: beaches of breathtaking beauty, surfing, hotels with top-notch services.

A wide range of activities can be enjoyed in Dubai, from snorkeling and scuba diving in an underwater aqua park to skiing on an open mountain track of any size. Here you can hunt for skeletons in safari parks, drive jeeps on the wilderness, ride the Futuristic Meter, and visit islands that are reminiscent of the shape of the world. Its also worth visiting the tartar plantations or the ancient Arabian Gold Bazaar Market. Its known for its sailboats & ²quo;²quo;²quo; and its beautiful flamingo birds. As in the past, this coven carries merchandise from all over the world. You can admire the view of the boat and watch the boats on the boat rack.

In spite of the citys innovation, there are still old barracks alleys filled with the atmospheric atmosphere of the traditional gulf trade. Practically every shop can be decorated with jewel-like adornments, beautifully colored silk or silk fabrics, or silk and silk fabrics with lovely, colorful patterns.
