Why is Dubai the richest city?

Each of us has heard that Dubai is a city of luxury and wealth. Dubai used to be different, and the way we see it today is the result of a huge work of patient and persevering people. The Arabs throughout history did not give up, defending their oasis. And now, when Dubai is the best place in the Arabian Peninsula, the Arabs still know how to work hard and enjoy life.

"Dubai" in translation means "juvenile locust", or "freshly hatched locust". Obviously, locusts were found in the Arabian Peninsula in such a large number that they gave rise to a geographical name. But before the city got its name, it had traveled centuries from a tiny village between the desert and the sea.

Agree that it is hard to imagine that once on the site of a huge metropolis with incredible skyscrapers, expensive restaurants, hotels and luxury cars, there was a tiny ancient village on every meter. Stunned! Speaking about Dubai cars, if you are in this wonderful city, we strongly recommend you to use a luxury car rental service instead of public transport. You won't believe it, but there is a very low Ferrari car price in UAE. Car rental services will not only make your stay in Dubai very comfortable and luxurious, but will also help to give you a feeling of freedom and confidence for very little money and offer a huge range of different rental cars! You will definitely find your perfect rental iron horse. Try it, you won’t regret it!

The first information about Dubai dates back to the III millennium BC. At this time, a settlement arose on the site of the future city. This place was not at all suitable for normal life, the land was constantly flooded with ebbs and flows. In the 17th century, the Bani Yas family came from a neighboring settlement. This became a relative starting point, because the family founded a city on the site of the settlement, and it was Dubai.

The advantage of Dubai, which gave him the opportunity to begin to develop this territorial position. Dubai is geographically in a position that allows the great sea lanes to converge.

The next period of history, namely from the beginning of the 18th century to the middle of the 20th century, Dubai was in a rather difficult situation. All this because Great Britain had Dubai as its colony. Formally, Dubai emerged from British rule at the end of the 19th century. The British authorities determined the policy of this Dubai, because the territory did not have independence. Despite this situation, the people of Dubai managed to maintain their identity, traditions and rituals, as well as an independent proud spirit and desire for prosperity. Fortunately, Dubai became free in the 20th century.

Huge changes and a key moment in the history of Dubai occurred in the middle of the last century. At this time, an oil field was discovered on the shelf, and then in the 1960s in Dubai itself. Later it turned out that the oil in Dubai is of high quality. This point of history is one of the main ones, because it opens up new horizons for Dubai

As you can imagine, the discovery of oil has been a real boon for Dubai. It is oil that is the impetus for such a rapid and, as it seems, sudden development of Dubai and its economy. Also, do not forget about the invaluable contribution of hardworking residents of Dubai. So, soon after this discovery, Dubai began to acquire luxurious skyscrapers, artificial sand islands, and the richest tourists began to come to the territory.
