With the influx of tourists and businesses and the fact that Abu Dhabi is seeing tourism as well as Dubai, the job market is thriving as well.

Cities like Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, and Doha are taking the region into the future with their modern architecture, development, science and tourism. One awesome example is the Palm Islands in Dubai that are man-made islands in the shape of the palm trees and the world. These path-breaking creation triggered the creation of many man-made islands all around the world.
