Many people pursue their goals in Dubai, because salaries are bigger, and there are many possibilities available. Even though the world was in crisis, people of Dubai did not experience all that in the same manner. One more interesting fact is that less than 20 % of the population are actually the local population. Although the population is tailored from various religions, and cultures, it seems like they all highly respect each other, and live happily together.
