The paper “ Tourism and Natural Environment in Dubai ” is a  variant of a case study on tourism. Dubai is located in the Southwest of the Persian Gulf. It has the highest population among the United Arab Emirates states with an area of 2,106,177 square kilometers. It is located between the Far East and Europe. The city has more than one hundred shipping lines and over one hundred airlines. It is next to Saudi Arabia (Sampler & Eigner 2008). Dubai is one of the major destinations or emirates of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates.

In the year 1997, the department of tourism and marketing commerce was established in Dubai. The main aim of this department was to increase the tourism rate and market Dubai to the outside world. It aims at attracting many tourists to Dubai by marketing both heritage and natural environment in Dubai (Davidson 2008). Tourism has been a major source of revenue for the government of Dubai and it has also enabled the government to attract foreign currency. For example in the year 2011, Dubai served a total of 9,000,000 tourists (Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing 2013). Dubai’ s natural environmentThere are various reasons why Dubai is able to attract this large number of tourists.

One of the attractions of the tourists is the natural environment, the kind of society found in Dubai, and many other tourist attractions. Besides Dubai being next to the coastal region, it has some natural environment which attracts the tourists (Sharpley 2008). The semi-desert climate in Dubai is different from those of other countries. The semi-desert trees such as Flora and Fauna are good for viewing.

The natural harbor of Dubai further is rare to many countries thus it acts as a natural environment that attracts tourists. In addition, the Persian Gulf is another natural att5raction for tourists in Dubai. The Gulf connects with Oman Gulf. At the cross points of these two Gulfs, they make a good environment that is rare to find in other places. Therefore natural semi-desert environment and the natural harbor provide tourist features (Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing 2013).
