Dubai is a bustling centre of excellence, recognised as the commercial and tourism centre of the region, and one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. It is a city of contrasts, where outstanding modern architecture and soaring skyscrapers stand alongside traditional Arabic buildings and suburban villas. Its selection and designation as host city for The World’s Fair-Expo 2020 epitomises its status and ambition. Dubai's many and varied attractions provide visitors with a unique experience. Miles of clean, uncrowded sandy beaches give way to mysterious byways from an exotic Arabian heritage. The timeless majesty of the desert contrasts with a spectacular nightlife of restaurants and nightclubs. The city has a strong service-driven economy, offering every business amenity from banking to telecommunications, transport. International trading and industrialization are encouraged by the provision of seaports and specialist free trade zones. Many projects are bringing 21st century technology and communication to Dubai including the world's first Free Zone dedicated to e-business, and the priority placed on mobile-enabled government services.
Dubai Airport is a one of the busiest airports in the world. It is a major international hub and is located within the city of Dubai.
