Take a look inside the Dubai guide.


Dubai's economy was kick started by the discovery of oil in 1966, it transformed the Emirate from a dusty trading post into a modern metropolis in rapid time. But Dubai's oil reserves are modest in comparison to some of its neighbours and now contributes a small proportion of national income. An aggressive policy of expansion into financial services, tourism and real estate has created a new economy which sucks in thousands of foreign workers to keep it running. The Emirates addiction to grand projects - such as Burj-Khalifa (the world's tallest building) and man made islands - is well known. Many ex-pats owe their living to the relentless expansion, but they worry about its sustainability. Foreigners, on good salaries, have a high standard of living and have learnt to live by the rules. Rules they rarely question in public.
