Living in Dubai
The United Arab Emirates is made up of seven formerly independent Emirates: Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al Quwain, Ras al Khaimah and Fujairah. The Emirate of Dubai is located south of the Arabian Gulf on the Arabian Peninsula and has the largest population of all the Emirates.
Dubai has emerged as a global city and a business hub. With an economy originally built on the oil industry, it is now growing through revenues generated from tourism, real estate and financial services, similar to Western countries. Whether you are new to Dubai or have been here for years, there is always something to discover. With a mild climate eight months of the year, you can enjoy glorious sunshine and broken blue skies perfect for hosting outdoor barbecues, camping in the desert or enjoying a beach club.
