Glitz, glamor, gloss! All this comes to mind when you talk about Dubai, the city which has risen from the vast stretches of barren Arabian sands to the bustling metropolis it is today.

Today Dubai, the commercial capital of the UAE, enjoys the distinction of being a city where people of 200 nationalities co-exist in peace and harmony. A city which has many ‘firsts’ in its serpentine list of achievemnets – the world’s tallest building-Burj Dubai, the world’s biggest mall-the Dubai Mall, the world’s largest cluster of man-made islands.The Dubai Metro too, when completed, is slated to be the largest in the world.

Though sun, surf, sand and shopping are the main attractions of the thousands of tourists who pour into Dubai each year, they cannot  fail to be awed by its massive progress in the field of education, industry, trade and technology.

Banking and finance, tourism, and real estate and construction are industries experiencing ongoing growth and offer a balanced and varied economy.

With its roots deep in its glorious past, the city has evolved to an unbelievable extent while impressively maintaining the delicate balance between its traditions and the demands of a modern era.
With a highly developed infrastructure, campuses of world-class universities, exquisite shopping malls, architecturally stunning hotels, breathtaking natural as well as artificial beauty, mouth-watering international cuisine, and much more, Dubai’s popularity as a hot tourist destination is on the increase.
