“What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well”

It did not end up being a well or an oasis but rather evolved into a paradise for millions. Yes, we are referring to Dubai. The nation was once a desolate landscape, a modest trading port for centuries. Its economy relied solely on pearl diving until the discovery of oil in 1960, consequently altering Dubai’s fate.

The credit for the economic prosperity of Dubai rests solely in the hands of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the current ruler of Dubai and the Vice President, Prime Minister, and Minister of Defense of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Sheikh Mohammed played a pivotal role in transforming Dubai into one of the most sought-after destinations in the world. Unlike other GCC countries that heavily depended on oil production, Sheikh Mohammed’s visionary decision to focus on tourism set Dubai apart. Today, Dubai shines as a gem in the Arab world, boasting unique tourist destinations such as the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary and the Museum of the Future.
