What is the fastest growing city in the world?

Dubai was founded in 1830 as a fishing village (although in the Emirates, according to scientists claim, the first humans appeared about 7000 years ago). In those days the main occupation of the inhabitants of the settlement was sheep farming, fishing, pearling, etc. All of this settlement was going on as usual, it developed, and established trade.

In 1836 Ruler of Dubai has become Maktoum bin Buti, who founded a dynasty that has ruled Emirate until now.
