Over the last three to four years, there has been a lot of media attention about Dubai. However, even though the media has spent a lot of time talking about the rise of luxury throughout Dubai (and more recently, all of the problems they have been encountering as a result of the slumping economy), many people still don’t know much more about Dubai than it is an extremely luxurious place created by people with immense amounts of wealth. If you are one of the people who don’t know much about Dubai, you shouldn’t be embarrassed by this fact. The reason that I say you shouldn’t be embarrassed is because the media hasn’t spent much time covering the details of Dubai, so you can’t be expected to be an expert on the topic when you haven’t heard much about it.

In case you are curious and would like more information about Dubai, it is the most populous city (with a population of slightly over 2.2 million people) in the United Arab Emirates (which is made up of seven emirates). Dubai is located along the southern coast of the Persian Gulf on the Arabian Peninsula.

If you are curious about the nationality of the people who live in Dubai, I can also share that information with you. Approximately forty-two percent of the people who call Dubai home are Indian, while another twenty-six percent are Arab. The next highest nationality percentage is Pakistani, with a respectable thirteen percent. Rounding out the list are ten percent Western, and finishing things off are seven percent Bangladeshi.
