If you have always wondered about reason for the success of the UAE and the cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai as tourist destination, then you may not be the only one. There are more than 12 flights per day from London a day to Dubai. The emirate prides itself in doing everything in humongous sizes. One of the few countries with more foreigners than locals. The UAE continues to break new grounds and attract fascinated tourists in large numbers.
Real estate is big business in the UAE, mostly owned by foreigners, but you cannot but wonder why so many global organisations are located within the emirate. The emirate has remained an attraction for many tourists, the number of the tourists being deposited and the planes arriving daily to the country must break a few world records, especially for a country of that size and in the middle of the desert.
The vision of the rulers and the founding fathers has continued to push the country into new heights. The motor for the emirate must be “be the best”. The country is known for its innovative ways to everything. Who needs industrial and technological break through when you can buy the latest technology?. The UAE has proved that better management and investment of your resources can make life better for the people of a country.
It is difficult to know who will be occupying all the high rise buildings in the centre of Dubai?. How many of the foreigners living in Dubai can afford to buy properties in Dubai with the cost of staying in the top hotels so cheap and most people who travel to Dubai only staying for a few days at a time, may be, it is time for the UAE to slow down a bit on the quest for continuous building of new properties.
As a tourist destination, the UAE knows how to attract tourists, from the Emirates airline with the spacious seating and the luxury airport and well planned transport system, the country is a model for many developing countries to emulate.
