Dubai is part of the United Arab Emirates(UAE), a country located on the East coast of the Arabian peninsula. Dubai made its fortune over the last decade through its vast oil reserves, and more recently is trying to diversify its economic activity. Finance and tourism are two industries in which Dubai is investing heavily, especially through various projects that made headlines around the World. Numerous world class hotels have been built, and entire new islands are being created to provide real estate opportunities. Some of them are truly spectacular. Dubai is also aggressively trying to become a major tourist destination, for example by providing a world class airport-hub for travel among various continents. You can fly to Dubai airport with Austrian Airlines.
