Dubai used to be known as the ‘City of Gold.’ Trading from Iran and India dominated the city’s economy along with dhow building. Dhows are wooden boats which are used for cargo and today also used for tourist activities such as dhow sightseeing cruises and dhow dinner cruises along the Dubai Creek (natural salt water inlet). This is the reason that a Dubai City Tour starts along the Dubai Creek.
Since the past two decades, Dubai has transformed into a cosmopolitan city no longer relying only on trade or even oil. The Sheikhs of Dubai have invested heavily on the city’s infrastructure, building internationally awarded airports, the world’s tallest building, manmade islands, the world’s tallest hotels, and the list is endless. Room inventories from international hotel chains as well as regional chains keep expanding but are never enough for the ever increasing influx of tourists.
