Dubai: From a humble village to a cosmopolitan city
Dubai has transformed from a humble fishing village to one of the most cosmopolitan and innovative cities in the world. Tracing its origins back to 3,000 BC, Dubai's inhabitants made their livelihood from fishing, pearl diving, boat building and sea trading, before the discovery of oil in the late 1960s. In 1971, Dubai joined its neighbours to form the United Arab Emirates, safeguarding the area's prosperity.
