it has spectacular beaches but is not Australia; it is one of the world’s most secure destinations but is not Singapore; it has opulent city hotels and superb beachside resorts but is neither
Jakarta nor Bali. It has world class shopping but is not Hong Kong.
Welcome to Dubai, city of merchants, cultural crossroads, second largest of the seven United Arab Emirates. A country where the dust of the desert is clearing to reveal the potential for one of the most significant international cities of the 21st century.
Dubai Shopping Festival:
On February 15, 1996, the travel industry in the Middle East heralded the beginning of a new dawn - the birth of the most impressive mega event for shopping and entertainment. An entirely new concept, it succeeded brilliantly in showcasing.
Today, one of the biggest beneficiaries of the event is the tourism sector. Hotels, and travel agents contribute to the selling of the event worldwide so every year, Dubai Shopping Festival lives up to its promise of staging the most exciting activities for the whole family inspired by the theme One World, One Family, One Festival.
Dubai's exciting new tourism destination started off as a huge cultural entertainment center to cater to the need for a central meeting point where different countries could showcase the myriad cultures. Over the years it has grown into a star attraction among UAE nationals, resident expatriates from over 160 different countries and visitors from across the world.
Jabel Ali Free Zone:
Jebel Ali is a port town, located thirty-five kilometers southwest of the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The port began to be constructed in the late 1970's along with Jebel Ali Village (built around 1977) which was used, initially, for the construction workers of the port. The village is still a thriving expect community with over 300 residents. With 67 berths Jebel Ali is the world's largest man-made harbor and the biggest port in the Middle East. Jebel Ali is located 24°59'N 55°03'E.
The Jebel Ali Free Zone, established in 1985, is the industrial area surrounding the Jebel Ali port. Dubai World Central International Airport is being constructed in the area.
The port of Jebel Ali has become the port most frequently visited by ships of the United States Navy outside the United States. Virtually all sailors who have completed shipboard tours have visited the port at least once. Due to the depth of the harbor and size of the port facilities, a Nimitz Class aircraft carrier and several ships of the accompanying battle group can be accommodated pier side. Due to the frequency of these port visits, semi-permanent liberty facilities (referred by service personnel as "The Sandbox") have been erected adjacent to the carrier berth.
Dubai itself is not tax free, but it contains a number of economic free zones which have various economic incentives to encourage investment and commercial development. One of these zones is The Jebel Ali Free Zone, its bot entirely tax free, but its incentives make it come very close. Companies which are run within the Jebel Ali Free Zone are given a total pass on all corporate and personal taxation for a period of fifteen years. At the end of this fifteen year period, a request may be made to be tax exempt for another fifteen years — in effect offering the potential for an indefinite tax free status. In addition, there are no import or export taxes on companies within the Jebel Ali Free Zone. While Dubai itself is not entirely tax free, there certainly are regions within Dubai which allow foreign investors and corporations to set up shop with no taxation whatsoever. These zones provide a virtually unique opportunity for those looking to avoid corporation taxation either on their own business or on businesses they wish to invest in.

Tourists and Guests:
The recognition of Dubai as a tourist destination is a recent phenomenon and has left the whole world in a bit of shock. Most tourist hotspots spend decades trying to build infrastructure and reputation to attract people from the world over. Dubai tourism has exploded within a short span of time thanks to some very intelligent efforts by its government. Dubai attracted the maximum visitors during its annual Shopping Festival. However, that was more of a shopping visitor than a tourist who had come to see the sights and have an amazing time.
