Dubai, the New Super City!

Jan 24, 2022 | Lifestyle, Travel | 0 comments

I’m sure we’ve all seen in the media Dubai featured in many travel shows and documentaries showing a city in UAE which has shown astronomical growth in just the last few years.

The City  of Dubai was founded in 1833 but only recently has the growth accelerated from a City where in 1968 only 13 cars were registered to the present day where exotic cars are common place and almost 3 million cars registered at the last count. Fuel is not much more expensive than water

From an unassuming fishing village in 1833, it wasn’t until the 1970’s that it started to develop into the desert metropolis that it is today.

Fun facts:

There are roughly 2.3 males to every female in Dubai and there is even a Minister of Happiness.

The Burj Al Arabs interior has 1790 square metres  of 24-carat gold leaf.

The hottest temperature ever recorded in Dubai was 52.1 degrees Celsius

Robot jockeys are used in Camel Racing.

Dubai, during the frenzy of the building boom was home to nearly 25% of the world’s cranes.

Dubai is home to the tallest 4 and 5 star in the world.

Dubai boast the world’s fastest police car, a 254 mph Bugatti Veyron in addition to a Mercedes AMG GT63S, modified Lamborghini Aventador, Aston Martin, Bentley Continental and a Ferrari.

Many Brits are now calling Dubai home and I know a couple enjoying life in this amazing city. Growing at such a rapid rate does generate many opportunities. However, beware as entry into and working in Dubai is not all plain sailing. Work visas are expensive and somewhat limited in time. If you’re up for the challenges and qualify it could be paradise. Watch this space as I’m planning on a trip in the near future.
