|7 Weirdest and Craziest Things in Dubai|
Dubai is a fascinating city that draws people in. Most pictures of Dubai make you feel amazed and impressed, but it's important to keep in mind that these pictures only show one side of this amazing city. You will be surprised by these interesting facts about Dubai. Let's use KnowInsider to find out about Dubai's hidden side.
1. No Income Tax In Dubai
When you make money in Dubai, you won't have to pay any taxes on it, and the pay is often very good. Even so, the cost of living is not low in any way. The Emirate does not tax the income of its citizens or people who live there.
Still in place are taxes on corporations and taxes on harmful products. This brings a lot of people to Dubai, where they hope to save a lot of money in a short amount of time.
2. Gold Lovers
Dubai was where more than 25% of the world's physical gold went. Show off and make your valuables look nice. In Dubai, it has become popular to put gold plating on things like cars, furniture, and electronics. Go to the Gold Souk instead if you'd rather buy jewelry from the past. It's so full of gold that it's hard to look at and even harder to take your eyes off of it.
But the funniest thing about their love of gold is that they made the longest gold chain in the world. The length of the chain is 5,522 meters, or 18,116 feet and 9 inches.
3. The Largest Shopping Mall in the World
The Dubai Mall is the largest shopping mall in the world in terms of total area. It is more than 12 million square feet, which is the size of more than 50 soccer fields. There are more than 1,200 stores in the mall, as well as an ice rink, a SEGA game center, a five-star hotel, 22 movie theaters, and 120 restaurants and cafes. It also has the world's largest indoor aquarium and is the entrance to the Burj Khalifa, which is the world's tallest building.
4. Robots play sport

In Dubai, robots are taking the place of children working illegally in camel racing, which only children can do. Instead of letting children who live in Dubai take part, there have been times when children were brought into the country illegally to race camels. The rest of the world eventually found out about the problem and has mostly stopped it since then. People now bet on robots and their camels because the game is so popular.
Now, robots the size of children are being made and are racing against the camels. They can cost between $300 and $10,000.
5. The sun is shining almost year round
Dubai is now one of the most popular places to go during the winter. One reason is the sun, and another is that the weather is nice most of the year, with only a few rainy days.
But during the summer, it can get very hot. Lucky for you, 99.9% of buildings, hotels, malls, and other places have air conditioning to keep you cool.
6. Tennis on the sky
It looks like Dubai is all about seeing how far people can go with architecture. This tennis court is more than a thousand feet above the ground and is on top of the very fancy Burj al Arab hotel.
Roger Federer and Andre Agassi were asked to play a friendly match on this heavenly court, but we don't know how anyone could play up there without feeling nervous. Also, if a ball flew off the court and hit a person on the ground, that person would die instantly.
7. The Lowest Crime Rates in the World
As of 2020, Dubai is one of the safest cities to live in. Only 5 crimes are committed there every 100,000 people. With a safety index score of 84.55 and a crime index score of 15.45, the UAE is ranked as the third safest nation in the world by the Crime Index by Country report. When visiting the United Arab Emirates, one should not be overly concerned about security.
