Dubai charm

Hubby came back with a few photo albums just now. He was at a meeting with a few friends who just came back from Dubai. Those albums contain lots of pictures regarding their newly acquired property in Dubai.

According to his friends, Dubai is the most populous and second largest emirate of the United Arab Emirates after Abu Dhabi. Dubai is distinct from other members of the UAE in that revenues from oil account for only 6% of its gross domestic product. A majority of the emirate's revenues are from the Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZ) and increasingly from tourism.

His friends are very interested in the artificial Islands like Dubai Marina, 'The Island' and 'the world'. They took a lot of pictures of some amazing buildings in Dubai and many of those man-made islands. I think they're going to build a hotel there soon. Good then, we'll have a nice place to stay if we ever go there for a holiday next time.
