Prior to the 1970s, Dubai was a small town with perhaps 60,000 people. After the formation of the UsefulNotes/UnitedArabEmirates, and the discovery of oil, development picked up with remarkable speed. A BoomTown and a half, it now possesses the tallest building on the planet (not finished internally), the [[strike:Burj Dubai]] Burj Khalifa, which is 828 metres tall, along with the Burj Al-Arab (a sail-shaped, self-proclaimed [[RankInflation 7-star]] hotel), the Palm Islands (three massive, palm-shaped artificial islands), and The World (similar to the Palm Islands, but the archipelago is in the shape of Earth's continents, and is nine kilometers wide).

While NewYorkCity is known as "The City That Doesn't Sleep", Dubai is also a city that's bustling 24/7, with many shops remaining open till the wee hours, and the streets never really clear of cars. Always movement in Dubai. Development still continues, though it's at a slower pace. [[CaptainObvious Obviously]].
