Dubai is a city in perpetual transition. From an arid desert to a thriving megapolis, Dubai has proven the saying ‘where there is a will, there is a way’. Unlike popular perception, only 6% of this city's revenue comes from oil, the rest of its wealth is from tourism and real estate.
For Indians, Dubai is the ultimate destination for shopping, partying and earning too. Here are 15 reasons why Dubai will spoil Indians for any other city in the world:

1. Fuel here is almost as cheap as one kg of tomatoes! For only INR 35 per liter, you can tank up your car and head for some guilt free dune bashing!

2. You’ll never realize how hot Dubai is because the government has made sure that you hardly have to step out of air conditioning. Even their bus stops are fully A/C!!
