Dubai is the most prominent of the Emirates cities and is the center of investment for the entire world. While the country attracts people from all spheres of life, the main source of income is tourism.
The Dubai government has assured a special arrangement for the comfort of the tourist; the country has almost zero criminal record, and that makes it the safest hub for settlement and business. Well, in case you’re planning a trip to Dubai, make sure you don’t miss the hot spots that make the city a pleasure hub for tourism.
