On the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf, it is the capital of the Emirate of Dubai, one of the seven emirates that make up the country. Dubai is a global city and is a major business and transport hub of the Middle East. Dubai is situated on the Persian Gulf coast of the United Arab Emirates and is roughly at sea level. The emirate of Dubai shares borders with Abu Dhabi in the south, Sharjah in the northeast, and the Sultanate of Oman in the southeast Dubai lies directly within the Arabian Desert. However, the topography of Dubai is significantly different from that of the southern portion of the UAE.
Dubai Tourism is an important part of the Dubai government's strategy to maintain the flow of foreign cash into the emirate. Dubai has been called the "shopping capital of the Middle East. Dubai alone has more than 70 shopping centres, including the world's largest shopping centre. Dubai has a rich collection of buildings and structures of various architectural styles. Many modern interpretations of Islamic architecture can be found here, due to a boom in construction and architectural innovation in the Arab World in general, and in Dubai in particular, supported not only by top Arab or international architectural and engineering design firms such as Al Hashemi and Aedas but also by top firms of New York and Chicago. The most recent addition to the magnificent skyline of Dubai is the 150-meter-high Dubai frame, located in Zabeel Park, Dubai.
