It was in 1966 when oil was first discovered in Dubai. Before the discovery of oil, Dubai wasn’t as luxurious as now and was just a simple desert port town in the UAE where trading of pearls and spices took place. Now, Dubai is one of the richest countries in our globe. How rich? Well... you will have to see for yourself!
As we said, nowadays it is rare to see Dubai's residents flaunting their exotic animals in public due to the risk of copping a large fine, however, until recently seeing a cheetah ride shotgun in the Emirati city was an everyday sight.
