Since my childhood, I like to explore overseas landscapes. My parents always brought me to different countries during my long vacations to know more about places.
Before 2 years, I and my family went on a tour of Dubai.
As all know, Dubai is one of the seven emirates in the United Arab Emirates.
Dubai is the second largest emirate in the UAE after Abu Dhabi. The emirate is on the Persian Gulf, southwest of Sharjah, and northeast of Abu Dhabi. Also has the largest population with over 3.33 million inhabitants as of September 2019.
It is the sprawling desert city a packet with gleaming high-rise towers that Dubai has become today, as it is hard to imagine that this inspirational place started as a tiny bushing village.
While the discovery of oil in the 1960s was a turning point for the emirate’s development, Dubai does have a rich history that began centuries before records show that Dubai was a walled city in the early 1800s.
The all Fendi fort was built around the same time Dubai became a dependency, now the site of the Dubai museum.
Visitors can imagine the city’s yesteryears with a walk along the balks of Dubai creek.
So, in the space of just half a century, Dubai exploded in growth.
Which are how very closely associated with the metropolis?
The new city center is a string of skyscrapers lining Sheikh Zayed Road.
Close to Sheikh Zayed is the Dubai International Financial center.
On periphery lies the Burj al –Arab, a giant sail-shaped tower that is home to the luxury hotel.
But here I would like to know more about its ruling family and their past.
