Once a sleepy fishing village, Dubai has undergone rapid transformation since the 1980s, emerging as one of the most dynamic cities in the world. Under the visionary leadership of the Al Maktoum family, the emirate has successfully capitalised on its strategic location, at the crossroads of the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Europe, and has established a formidable reputation as a global hub for tourism and trade.
During the 19th century, Dubai’s pearl industry started to thrive. Merchants then flocked from all four corners of the globe to trade their wares in the city, based on its advantageous location - wrapped around a 10-km-long creek - which today remains a thriving commercial waterway. The discovery of oil in the 1960s fast-tracked Dubai’s rise to fame, with the emirate ploughing funds into new industries and infrastructure. It led to the creation of bold initiatives such as the offshore Jebel Ali Free Zone and the world’s busiest international airport, Dubai International Airport.
Dubai continues to push the boundaries as a progressive global city, known for its iconic landmarks and attractions, including the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa and the largest retail complex, Dubai Mall.
New areas such as the Rise Dubai Creek Harbour, and Al Seef will add choicer shopping and dining destinations. Al Seef is rooted in Dubai’s culture and heritage, with a charming atmosphere that fuses the heritage and modernity of the Emirate. Located just across the creek from Al Bandar Rotana. Rich in rare historical sites for such a modern city.
