Dubai Emiriah Arab Bersatu
Dubai is the most popular city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is the capital of the Emirate of Dubai, one of the seven emirates that make up the country. Abu Dhabi and Dubai are the only two emirates to have veto power over critical matters of national importance in the country's legislature. The city of Dubai is located on the emirate's northern coastline and heads up the Dubai Sharjah Ajman metropolitan area. Dubai is to host World Expo 2020.

Port of Dubai

Dubai has emerged as a global city and business hub of the Middle East. It is also a major transport hub for passengers and cargo. By the 1960s, Dubai's economy was based on revenues from trade and, to a smaller extent, oil exploration concessions, but oil was not discovered until 1966. Oil revenue first started to flow in 1969. Dubai's oil revenue helped accelerate the early development of the city, but its reserves are limited and production levels are low: today, less than 5% of the emirate's revenue comes from oil. The emirate's Western style model of business drives its economy with the main revenues now coming from tourism, aviation, real estate, and financial services. Dubai has recently attracted world attention through many innovative large construction projects and sports events. The city has become iconic for its skyscrapers and high-rise buildings, in particular the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

As of 2012, Dubai is the 22nd most expensive city in the world and the most expensive city in the Middle East. In 2014, Dubai's hotel rooms were rated as the second most expensive in the world, after Geneva. Dubai was rated as one of the best places to live in the Middle East by U.S. global consulting firm Mercer.

Tourism is an important part of the Dubai government's strategy to maintain the flow of foreign cash into the emirate. Dubai's lure for tourists is based mainly on shopping, but also on its possession of other ancient and modern attractions. As of 2013, Dubai was the 7th most visited city of the world based on air traffic and the fastest growing, increasing by a 10.7% rate. Dubai is expected to accommodate over 15 million tourists by 2015. The emirate is also the most populous of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates. Dubai was rated as one of the best places to live in the Middle East by U.S. global consulting firm Mercer.

Palm Islands are three artificial islands, Palm Jumeirah, Deira Island and Palm Jebel Ali, on the coast of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. As of November 2014, only Palm Jumeirah has been completed. This island takes the form of a palm tree, topped by a crescent. After completion, Palm Jebel Ali will take a similar shape; each island will be host to a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers and will add a total of 520 kilometers of non-public beaches to the city of Dubai.

The creation of the Palm Jumeirah began in June 2001. Shortly after, the Palm Jebel Ali was announced and reclamation work began.

Dubai mempunyai penduduk teramai dan merupakan bandar kedua terbesar setelah Abu Dhabi. Dubai dibezakan dari ahli-ahli lain di UAE dengan jualan dari minyak mengandungi hanya 6% keluaran dalam negara kasar. Kebanyakan jualan emiriah adalah dari Zon Bebas Jebel Ali (ZBJA) dan, kenaikannya, dari pelancongan.

Dengan pembinaan dan pembangunan dalam berbagai industri, Dubai telah menarik perhatian sedunia melalui projek pembaharuan hartanah, pesta sukan, persidangan dan rekod Guinness. Walau bagaimanapun, ini menarik perhatian, bersesuaian dengan kemunculannya sebagai sebuah hab bisnes dunia.

Dubai kini dipimpin oleh Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Makhtoum yang juga Wakil Presiden dan Perdana Menteri Emiriah Arab Bersatu. Meskipun bentuk pemerintahan Dubai adalah dalam bentuk kerajaan berpelembagaan, namun kerajaan berpelembagaan itu terpaksa tunduk pada undang-undang yang berlaku di sana.

Luas Dubai sekitar 4.114km2 dengan penduduknya hanya sekitar 2,262,000 orang dengan majoriti penduduk adalah pendatang dari sekitar 100 negara dari setiap penjuru dunia. Kerana Dubai dihuni oleh banyak bangsa, maka kebudayaannya pun telah beraneka ragam dan dipelbagaikan. 

Kerana pendapatan utama Dubai bukan berasal dari minyak dan sumber alam yang lain, maka Dubai mencari sumber lain yang diharapkan dapat mendorong pendapatan kota ini dalam pelbagai sektor khususnya dalam sektor bisnes perniagaan, ekonomi, perumahan, dan kewangan selain dari sektor pelancongan. Kebanyakan dari bangunan-bangunan yang dibina di Dubai amat menekankan bentuk dan kesenian yang berunsur keIslaman dan kontemporari.

Dubai telah banyak sekali membangunkan hotel dan pusat menbeli belah mewah dengan infrastruktur kelas pertama untuk menarik minat para pelancong bagi melancong ke kota bertaraf Dunia ini. Apabila dilihat beberapa hotel supermewah, seperti Hotel Atlantis dan Burj Al Arab, gedung canggih seperti Dubai Dynamic Tower, serta Pulau Palma yang luar biasa, pasti pelancong akan terpegun dan terkaku sebentar akan kemewahan dan perbezaan bentuk kota yang diperagakan.


Pulau Palma
Pulau Palma atau dalam bahasa Inggerisnya disebut Palm Island. Ia merupakan pulau buatan di Dubai yang bentuknya menyerupai pohon palma. Pulau ini tidak dicipta untuk satu gugusan pulau sahaja, tetapi ia telah dicipta untuk tiga gugusan.

Pulau buatan ini dibentuk dengan cara reklamasi yang di atasnya sedang dan akan dibangun lebih dari 100 hotel mewah, banglo perumahan, apartment, restoran, dan sebagainya.


Hotel Atlantis

Hotel mewah ini menjadi salah satu hotel termahal di dunia dengan biaya menginap sekitar 231043 US Dolar semalam. Tetapi yang istimewanya, Selain dari bilik tidur yang spektakular melebihi 2000 bilik, hotel ini juga menyediakan akuarium raksasa terdiri lebih dari 65.000 ikan, Terdapat juga dolphinarium atau akuarium khusus bagi ikan lumba-lumba dalam hotel ini. Kebanyakan ikan lumba-lumba khusus didatangkan dari Kepulauan Solomon.

Burj Al-Arab juga kini telah dinobatkan sebagai satu-satunya hotel didunia yang mempunyai gred Hotel 7 bintang.
