Dubai is a tourist city and its major revenue is coming from the Tourism sector, which might be the reason behind the unprecedented growth of Dubai in a very short time. The capital of UAE is primarily monikered as Asian Las Vegas, Although Dubai has already surpassed Las Vegas in terms of tourism and hospitality. Dubai’s main support of growth depends upon the development of its tourism sector, but the recent situation has been very harsh for this glittering city despite that Dubai’s continued on the path of growth. The recent pandemic has taken a toll all over the world. Not a single country has been spared by this pandemic. The tourism sector has been collapsed to the core and suffered the most. But Dubai has very strong laws in regards to the corona pandemic, like everywhere wearing Mask is must, gloves are also needed and there is a restriction for gatherings, etc.
The government of Dubai is taking very good care in regards to sanitization and cleanliness of the city. Restaurants and malls are maintaining proper protocol of hygiene. People, as well as the government, are cautious to follow all the measures to get protected from the pandemic. Dubai is something of an anomaly in the M East and also their diversification is intended to make up for oil after it has run out, not because it becomes worthless. The other backup plan for Dubai to grow perpetually in the future is by utilizing the tourism sector. The biggest users of oil are freight, passenger cars, shipping, and passenger aviation. Electric ships, planes, and viable heavy trucks aren’t just around the corner. At least 3 of these users are slated to use more oil over the coming decades. Passenger cars use around 25% of the world’s oil. Now, Dubai has added another feather in its cap.

After Dubai was featured for the first time on travel channels, Americans started to understand that the place I lived was much more than a desert outpost, but an amazing oasis of beaches, culture, shopping, events, outdoor adventures – a perfect vacation destination.
Americans were slow on this uptake while Europeans, Africans, Asians, and other Arab nations already frequented Dubai for holidays. Dubai Tourism & Commerce Marketing (DTCM) put a lot of creativity and money behind promoting itself, then and now #mydubai is being used as a prominent slogan for the promotion of tourism. Dubai was always the underdog in the peninsula now known as UAE. They were always engaged in trade and had no other means of living. The Maktoum family which is the current ruling family came into power in 1823. They had to deal with an outbreak of smallpox and a fire that burnt the whole city. The Emirate of Dubai has no oilfields onshore and the only oil field offshore was a small capacity find called Fateh.
