The city of Dubai is located in the northeastern part of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) along the Persian Gulf. Dubai is the capital city of the emirate of Dubai, one of seven emirates forming the United Arab Emirates. Dubai is the second largest city next to Abu Dhabi in UAE. The upper part of the image shows the center of the city, which developed along the west side of the Dubai Creek. Dubai shows 2 different characters: one as a business district lined with high-rise buildings along the creek; and another as a resort with Jumeirah Beach and the safari tour of the desert, shown at the lower left of the image. Off the coast of Jumeirah Beach is the world's largest man-made island resort The Palm in the Persian Gulf, now under construction. The design of the palm tree-shaped island can be seen in the image. The image covers an area of 40.8 x 53.5 km, was acquired 17 September 2003, and is located at 25.2 degrees North latitude, 54.9 degrees East longitude.
