Dubai Skyscrapers Windows 7 Theme is dedicated to the glittering and extravagant skyscrapers of Dubai. Dubai is one of the seven Emirates in the United Arab Emirates and is regarded as the fastest growing city in the world. It has the largest population and second largest land area among all the Emirates in the UAE. Dubai was a trading hub in the earlier part of the 20th century due to its strategic location. In 1966 oil was discovered which resulted in the massive growth of Dubai with the money earned from oil. It also brought the influx of foreign workers and international companies with mainly interests in oil. However, Dubai gradually decided to stop depending only on oil and invested heavily in tourism and real estate. This resulted in the creation of massive skyscrapers all around the city and the creation of artificial wonders such as Palm Islands. These rapid development also resulted in making Dubai a tourism and real estate hub and thereby removed the dependency on oil. In fact, revenues from oil and natural gas currently account for less than 6% of Dubai’s revenues. Real estate and construction (22.6%), trade (16%), trading port profit (15%) and financial services (11%) are the largest contributors to Dubai’s economy. As of 2009, India was Dubai’s largest trade partner. The skyscrapers in Dubai also include the world’s highest skyscraper Burj Khalifa (also known as Burj Dubai) with a staggering height of 2,722.57 ft. Five out of the world’s six tallest hotels including the world famous “Burj Al Arab” are also located in Dubai. Some of the extravagant hotels built in Dubai to promote tourism include Rose Rayhaan by Rotana (also known as Rose Tower), Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Atlantis Palm Hotel (both located on World Famous Palm Islands). Downtown Dubai and Dubai Marina (New Dubai) have also been filled up with skyscrapers in recent years.
