Exploring Dubai - The City of Gold, Through The Eyes Of A Native

Dubai has developed over the years to emerge as one of the world’s most prestigious and well-known tourist destinations. Fabulous all-inclusive lodging options, splendid dining establishments, shopping at the Dubai Mall, pristine beaches, deserts, and adrenaline-pumping activities all contribute to Dubai’s appeal as an amazing holiday destination.

History

The Dubai we know today was formerly a tiny fishing community whose livelihood was primarily based on fishing, pearl diving, and boat building, as well as providing lodging and food for traders passing through to sell gold, spices, and textiles. But in 1820, Britain reached a maritime agreement with regional leaders, ensuring that trade routes would remain open and that commerce could flourish. With the start of constant communication with other nations, Dubai became a hub for important activities.

Dubai started to prosper under Al Maktoum’s reign from 1894 until 1966. A new set of regulations that exempted foreigners from paying taxes in 1894 gave the local economy yet another uplift. Due to this, the city experienced a massive inflow of foreign workers. Even though this was a relatively prosperous time in Dubai’s history, the economy was still heavily dependent on fishing, trading, and pearl diving. In contrast, the 1950s Japanese invention of artificial pearls threatened the economy’s downfall.

What seemed to be a downfall suddenly turned into an uprise with the discovery of oil in 1966, Dubai’s fortunes abruptly changed, and the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum started the city’s expansion. From a small group of settlements close to Dubai Creek, he started developing the area into a cutting-edge port, metropolis, and commercial centre. Among the significant projects finished during the period were Rashid Port, Jebel Ali Port, Dubai Drydocks, the enlargement of Dubai Creek, and the Dubai World Trade Center.

The city’s development was hastened by visionary leadership and the revenue from the oil industry. The city has grown from its humble origins as a port in the desert to a huge metropolis with thriving communities, world-record-breaking structures, and extravagant shopping malls in just half a century.
