“The secret of Dubai‘s success is due to the vast desert spaces
of my country, where the mind has the freedom to think, to explore”
~ Ruler, Sheikh Mohammed
These days when you visit Dubai you’re arriving at the pivot point of extremes between the ancient and modern worlds. Contemporary Dubai is arguably the most architecturally futuristic city on the planet, thanks to the grand vision of its ruler, Sheikh Mohammed.
The earliest recorded mention of Dubai goes back to the year 1095. Located south of the Persian Gulf on the Arabian Peninsula, throughout its long history, Dubai‘s geographical location has made it an important trading hub between the Eastern and Western worlds. That tradition continues to this day in a completely up-to-date way.
Since the emirate administration of Dubai was created in 1971, Dubai City has emerged as a global city and international business hub. Although Dubai‘s economy was originally built on the oil industry, the emirate’s new model of business now drives its robust economy. Its main revenues are derived from tourism, real estate, and financial services, similar to that of Western countries.
While Dubai is a cosmopolitan, international center, Islam is a way of life in the city, and visitors are wise to adopt a level of cultural and religious sensitivity during their stay. Despite being governed by Islamic laws, alcohol is available to tourists in licensed bars and restaurants and English is widely spoken. Restaurant menus, road signs and other information is usually presented in both English and Arabic.
With year-round sunshine, intriguing deserts, beautiful beaches, luxurious hotels and shopping malls, fascinating heritage attractions and a thriving business community, Dubai receives millions of leisure and business visitors each year from around the world. When you visit, you’ll experience a range of services and a local infrastructure that help make any trip to Dubai smooth and hassle-free, and that includes the lavish Friday Jazz Brunch at Traiteur restaurant at the Park Hyatt Dubai.
