Dubai, is also spelled Dubayy, city and
capital of the emirate of Dubai, one of the flushest of the seven emirates that
constitute the federation of the United Arab Emirates, which was created in the
year of 1971 following independence from Great Britain. The origin of the name
Dubai had several secret theories. The word daba is a type of locust that overruns
the area whereas another holds that refers to a market that were near the city.
In current years Dubai has been equated to Singapore and Hong Kong and is frequently
observed as the Middle East’s premier entrepôt. Area 13.5 square miles (35
square km). Pop. (2016 est.) 2,645,581.
Dubai is famous for skyscrapers,
ports, and beaches, it’s also a place for big business together with
sun-seeking tourism. Because of its large expatriate population, it senses like
a Middle Eastern melting pot, and the atmosphere is mostly tolerant. The seven
emirates which make up the UAE are Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah,
Ras al Khaimah and Umm al Qaiwain. The major religion of Dubai is Islam, yet
chapels and Hindu sanctuaries coincide with Dubai's mosques.
Dubai is a comparatively
crime-free place where administrative efficiency and honesty to business have
encouraged astounding growth. The western part of Dubai benefits from small
stretches of sandy beaches, which have assisted to catalyze the city’s tourism
industry. Dubai’s rulers have sought to rise the city’s limited seafronts, and,
in the absenteeism of natural offshore islands, designers were encouraged to
construct massive man-made islands off the coast of the city. The supreme
well-known of these is Palm Jumeirah, which has the outline of a palm tree.
Others include the “World” islands, a cluster of small islands positioned to look
like a world map when viewed from overhead.
