2. A Building Taller Than 800 Metres
It’s been over a decade that the Burj Khalifa has been completed but to this day no other building has been able to cross the 700-metre mark let alone Burj Khalifa’s 829 m. Quick Fact: Ramadan fasts last about two minutes longer on the upper floors of the Burj Khalifa.
3. Running With No Income Taxes
What you earn belongs to you and your family, individuals don’t have to pay income taxes whatsoever here or in the UAE for that matter. Maybe that’s why we’ve got people from close to 200 nationalities living here. If you’re not in Dubai, we know you’re looking up LinkedIn right now for those potential Dubai gigs.
4. Free Zones
Yes, free zones existed before but the world owes it to Dubai for making them wildly popular. There are countless amount of free zones in Dubai all of which are super easy to set up a business in. If you do set up a company in a free zone, then guess what? No corporate taxes! Dubai truly is special.

Way to go, Dubai!
