Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.
Dubai is the largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates(UAE). On the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf, it is the capital of the Emirate of Dubai, one of the seven emirates that make up the country.
Dubai is a global city and business hub of the Middle East. It is also a major global transport hub for passengers and cargo. 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. Dubai's economy now relies on revenues from tourism, aviation, real estate, and financial services.
Dubai has a hot desert climate. Summers in Dubai are hot, windy, and humid. Most days are sunny throughout the year. Winters are cool with an average high of 24 °C (75 °F) and overnight lows of 14 °C (57 °F) in January, the coldest month.
