Dubai (/du'baI/ doobY; Arabic: Dubayy; Arabic pronunciation: [dU’bajj], Gulf Arabic pronunciation of: [[email protected]’baj]), is the capital of Dubai and the largest city in the United Arab Emirates. The city was established in 18th-century as a small fishing community. It grew quickly in the 21st century to become a bustling metropolis that focuses on tourism and hospitality. Dubai is a popular tourist destination. This can be attributed to Dubai's mixture of local culture and cosmopolitan life style. Dubai has the Burj Khalifa, which is the tallest building in the country and the second-most five-star hotels worldwide .  Creek Tower, which is taller than the Burj Khalifa, will be built in order to maintain that title. 
Dubai is located in the eastern region of the Arabian Peninsula, on the coast of Persian Gulf. It aims to become the business center of Western Asia. It is also a major international transport hub for cargo and passengers. The city was already a major hub for mercantile trade and oil revenue helped to accelerate its development. Dubai has been a centre for international and regional trade since the 20th century. Its economy is dependent on revenue from tourism, trade, aviation, real-estate, and financial services.  In 2018, oil production accounted for less than 1% of the emirate’s GDP.  According to 2017 estimates, the city's population is approximately 2.9 million.
