Dubai (/du'baI/ doobY; Arabic: Dubayy; Arabic pronunciation: [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. Dubai is a city that combines cosmopolitan culture with local culture. It also has the second-most five-star hotels in the globe, and the Burj Khalifa, which is the tallest building in the country. The taller Creek Tower will be built in order to maintain that title, despite competition. 
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 contributed to its rapid 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.  As of 2021, the city had a population of approximately 3.4 million.
