The emirate of Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is the second largest of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates.


Its strategic geographic location made the town an important trading hub and by the beginning of the 20th century, Dubai was already an important regional port.


Today, Dubai has emerged as a cosmopolitan metropolis that has grown steadily to become a global city and a business and cultural hub of the Middle East and the Persian Gulf region. It is also a major transport hub for passengers and cargo.


Dubai has recently attracted world attention through many innovative large construction projects and sports events. The city has become symbolic for its skyscrapers and high-rise buildings, such as the world's tallest Burj Khalifa, in addition to ambitious development projects including man-made islands, hotels, and some of the largest shopping malls in the region and the world.


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 2010, Dubai was the 7th most visited city of the world.
