Dubai is the emirate that has captured attention across the world with its spectacular expansion plans. Many have compared the city to a computer game where the imagination has no limit.
Dubai developers, not content with building the worlds tallest building, the Burj Dubai, and doubling the size of the city by building new islands (with names like the Palms, the World, and the Universe), are now setting their sights on building the Pad, set to be the most technologically advanced building in the world.
Only 10% of the population are born and bred Emiratis. The rest of the population is made up of a multicultural melting pot of foreign workers from all over the world. Dubai offers a wealth of opportunity in just about ever industry and many have made the move to the desert to take advantage of the prosperity that such expansion promises. Dubai is also recognised as one of the worlds leading financial hubs too.
