United Arab Emirates are known for the huge wealth they have extracted from their land. But if there is one of the emirates that shows off their fortune it is Dubai.
The small region located in the Persian Gulf has enjoyed throughout its history of being the centre of many trade routes. Some people call it “the Venice of the Gulf.” It began by selling pearls to the world, but in the 60s their greatest symbol radically changed its colour: oil. But despite being a major exporter of black gold, the emirate’s economy flows between construction, trade and financial services, and some tourism.
