Dubai Map - Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates located on the north-eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It is bordered by Abu Dhabi on the south, Sharjah on the north-east, and the Sultanate of Oman on the south-east.
Overlooking the Persian Gulf, Dubai is an emirate in the northeastern region of the UAE. A glitzy, glamorous city that attracts shoppers and urban vacation lovers, Dubai is soon becoming the tourist hub of the Middle East. Moving from the traditional oil industry, Dubai has now emerged as a major center for trade, commerce, finance, media, tourism, and fashion. Dubai’s philosophy is simple – what has not been endowed must be constructed. Little wonder then, that Port Jebel Ali, one of the biggest in the Middle Eastern region is also the world’s largest man-made harbor. Port Rashid and Port Jebel Ali are major centers for maritime trade and commerce. The Dubai International Film Festival is now a groundbreaking exhibition of Indian and Arab films. Dubai is perhaps best known for its indulging entertainment options, for the many amusement parks and nightclubs and not the least for the Dubai Shopping Festival – a religion unto itself.
