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. With a Per Capita of USD35, 000, the city stands as one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

The Dubai Mall is the largest shopping centre in the world by area. Its 1,200 retail outlets, department stores, over 160 food and beverage outlets, and huge entertainment zone, attract more than 750,000 visitors every week. The mall has also a 250-room luxury hotel, and even a large aquarium in it. The Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, with the world’s largest viewing panel.
Outside the mall, there’s the incredible Dubai Fountain with its dancing waters which is largest of its kind in the world. It is illuminated by 6,600 lights and 25 colour projectors that create a visual spectrum of over 1,000 abstract attractions. Its beam of light can be seen from over 20 miles away, and is visible from space, making it the brightest spot in the Middle East. This amazing 275 meters-long (900 ft.) fountain can spray 83,000 litres (22,000 gallons) of water and shoots water jets as high as 152 m (500 ft.) into the air in sync with classical, Arabic and world music.
