Unlike other Arab states the UAE actually courts and encourages tourists, constantly adding and upgrading events and attractions to complement its renown as the shopping capital of the world.

In Dubai resides the Jebel Ali Free Trade Zone, which makes the city a must for shop-a-holics. A major attraction is the annual Dubai Shopping Festival.
Dubai has led the way with phenomenal investment in opulent hotels and infrastructure, opening the world’s tallest sky scraper, the Burj Khalifa, in January 2010. Dubai has firmly established itself as a tourism honey pot, where visitors can laze on a beautiful beach, flex their credit card at designer stores or dance the night away to the musical mastery of international DJs.
