Dubai has become one of the biggest cities in the world in a matter of few decades and being one of the most cosmopolitan cities to live in, one may wonder how is it to live in the most influential city in the Middle East.
Let’s look at the past
Back in the 1930s, Dubai used to be a small fishing village, and its main economy came from trading pearls. But in the 1960s, oil was discovered, and the city started to change. The ruler of Dubai at the time, Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, used the profits generated from the newly discovered oil trade to build a touristic city with the intention to put the country on the map and attract people from all over the world.
Nowadays, the oil trade only amounts to 1% of the GDP of the Emirate of Dubai, and most of the income of the city comes from tourism and international investments.
When people first come to Dubai, they are amazed by the beautiful and modern architecture, but what really makes them fall in love is the lifestyle.
This city is built to make you feel like you are on an eternal holiday. The sunny weather and the beautiful beaches make it possible to enjoy every weekend like a vacation in a tropical paradise.
The catalog for entertainment is the widest in the world, with unique attractions like having dinner in a restaurant hanging 50 meters from the sky, or the world’s biggest aquapark, including the best 5 stars hotels and restaurants to enjoy the best food from any part of the world.
People say that Dubai is the Disney World for grownups, with always something new to do every single week.
But that’s not all, as the city is also made to make your life as comfortable as possible. In Dubai, it is common to get every single grocery item delivered to your door, even if it’s just a can of soda, or get your dirty laundry picked up and delivered to your home the next day, washed and ironed.
This means that as a business owner you can focus more on doing the activities that you actually enjoy doing, like growing your business and enjoying the profits that you generate.
And this is the reason why people fall in love with the beautiful Dubai.
