The United Arab Emirates is unlike almost any other place on earth, and Dubai is its crown jewel. For thousands of years, Dubai was a land of pearls, and divers risked death by diving as deep as 40 meters in search of small, attractive jewelery. Eventually, the magic and danger of pearls gave birth to oil and industry. These days, Dubai is a great center of tourism, trade and energy, but its rich and eccentric heritage still shines.

The food of Dubai still looks, looks, smells and tastes like that foreign place it was in the old days.
