Dubai see + do

Prosperity came to this previously sleepy city state relatively recently. Before the oil boom in the 1970s, it had an exclusively sea-based economy concentrated on pearl diving and trade routes, so if you are looking for classical art, ancient artifacts, and historical sites or monuments, you'll be disappointed. The government is trying to fast-forward the creation of a modern urban culture with roots in local traditions. It is restoring culturally significant buildings and areas such as the souks and Bastikiya, and encouraging operators to embrace Arab culture for experiences and theme parks, all while pouring money into supporting contemporary art and building the infrastructure—a metro, a massive new shipping port, and an airport—required for a 21st-century economy.
