Dubai is home to people from over 200 nationalities. The emirate is known for its modern skyscrapers, extravagant landmarks, star-studded skyline, vibrant nightlife and high-end shopping experiences.
The emirate’s economy is primarily driven by its real estate and tourism sector. However, this was not always so. One of the interesting facts about Dubai is that until the 1700s, Dubai’s economy relied heavily on fishing and pearl farming. Similarly, the history of Dubai architecture is also quite one of a kind. A number of elements make Dubai impressive, such as;
The Burj Khalifa
Burj Khalifa doesn’t require an introduction. So far it is the tallest skyscraper in the world and it will remain this way for quite some time. There are plenty of things to do at Burj Khalifa. Whether you fancy an afternoon tea or a view of Dubai from the top of Burj, or perhaps a nice lunch or dinner, you can experience it all.
The Museum of the Future
The Museum of the Future opened its doors to the public on February 22 2022. Referred to as the “most beautiful building on Earth” by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. You can explore the future of artificial intelligence and other innovative technologies there.
Ain Dubai, the world’s largest observation wheel, is an impressive addition to Dubai’s incredible ‘must-see attractions’ list. A one-of-a-kind experience, a ride on this observation wheel lasts around 48 minutes. The name translates to Dubai Eye (similarly like the London Eye). Riding on this Dubai Ferris wheel means witnessing the emirate’s iconic developments, such as Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah and Burj Khalifa like never before.
The Palm Jumeirah is the largest artificial island in the world, shaped like a palm tree complete with the fronds and a trunk. Palm Jumeirah is a luxury development that offers high-end waterfront living for residents, with all lifestyle amenities and leisure activities nearby.
The Pointe is an exclusive waterfront destination on the world’s largest artificial island, dotted with amazing restaurants and retail outlets.
