Luxury And Adventure Await In Dubai

Dubai is an amazing city of relatively young origins. There is mention in some documents of Dubai as early as 1095 but the first known settlement of the city was in 1799. The Al Abu Falasa clan of Bani Yas formally established Dubai as a town early in the 19th century and it was ruled by the clan until the British claimed control in 1892. Dubai quickly became an important hub for trading due to its ideal location on the Persian Gulf.

The discovery of oil in the region in 1966 brought a vast amount of foreign workers to the oil fields, tripling the population of Dubai in a short time, also bringing to the area a large amount of investment from abroad. In 1971 the United Kingdom relinquished its control of the area and the emirates of Dubai and Abu Dhabi along with four other emirates joined to become the United Arab Emirates, with Ras Al-Khaimah joining early the following year.
