There is virtually no crime, the city is clean, apartments and villas are modern and spacious and the climate is pleasant for most of the year. Freedom of worship is allowed to all religions, and Christian churches have existed in Dubai for many years. Foreign newspapers, magazines, films and videos are readily available. With its lavish reputation and oil revenues, Dubai continues to impress with world-class events such as the annual Dubai Shopping Festival, Dubai International Film Festival, Dubai World Cup, and Dubai Desert Classic golf tournament.
