It’s not just us who love Dubai! More and more people are coming to live in the emirate, with the population now topping 2.17 million.
The figure has jumped up 4.8 per cent from 2,068,000 people residing in Dubai in August 2012, to 2,174,000 people this month. The figures are based upon Dubai’s permanent residents, both Emirati and expatriate.
The sunny emirate's popularity as a place to live first began to climb back in 2011 when the population jumped up a whopping 22,072 people in less than three months.
