Dubai real estate is red hot, not because of its desert climate of over 120°F, but because of the presence of the world’s largest companies and the hottest personalities.

Be it Britney Spears, Madonna, Paris Hilton, Michael Jackson, Tom Cruise, Tiger Woods or even Brad Pitt, nearly every top western celebrity either owns a villa or a super-luxury condo in one of the most expensive parts of the world – Marina West and Palm Islands in Dubai.

Long gone are the days when Dubai was just a favourite destination for labourers from South Asia, white-collar professionals from India and Pakistan and top businessmen of the subcontinent, who have been flocking to the tiny city-state since the early 1970s.
