Dubai, the UAE capital, is the world’s biggest tourist destination.
With nearly 5 million visitors a year, it is a city full of culture, history and adventure.
But in a city of only 8 million people, it can be hard to keep track of all the different things that happen here.
The UAE has an official tourism department, and in the past few years, they have started a series of public education campaigns that aim to help the public understand the history and culture of the country.
In 2014, they launched the ‘Culture in Dubai’ initiative.
In this video, which is titled ‘Dhabia’s Diverse Heritage’, a group of tourists visit the country’s capital in search of its unique culture and history.
In this film, which focuses on the UAE and its people, Emirati-American artist Alia Al-Jawad joins us to discuss the UAE, the history of Dhabia and the challenges that face the UAE as a country today.
