Dubai has many malls and one of the most famous around the world is called Dubai Mall, which is the largest mall in the world. Dubai has lots of skyscrapers and wealthy people. Dubai International Airport is located in the middle of the city. This city is a safe place for living. Dubai is a city which promotes happiness, safety and the wellbeing of its residents.
Dubai has attracted world attention through large construction projects and sports events, the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. By 1960s, Dubai’s economy was based on revenues from trade and, to a smaller extent, oil exploration concessions, but oil was not discovered until 1966. Oil revenue first started to flow in 1969. Dubai’s oil revenue helped accelerate the early development of the city, but its reserves are limited, and production levels are low: today, less than 5% of the emirate’s revenue comes from oil. The emirate’s Western-style model of business drives its economy with the main revenues now coming from tourism, aviation, real estate, and financial services. Dubai has recently attracted world attention through many innovative large construction projects and sports events. The city has become iconic for its skyscrapers and high-rise buildings.
Dubai has a hot desert climate. Summers are extremely hot, windy, and humid. The highest recorded temperature in the UAE is 52.1 °C (126 °F), recorded in July 2002.
