20 years ago people might have imagined Dubai as a barren desert or simply a small oil field. That’s definitely not the case now, as Dubai’s wealth from oil and trade brought growth to their economy, tourism, and real estate. As one of seven states in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is a popular destination that has gone from attracting only the ultra-luxury crowd to becoming more accessible for general travellers.
Dubai has become a battlefield for engineers and architects around the world to compete with the elements and form the best ideas. Some of the world’s most innovative construction projects are there, such as Palm island, an artificial island constructed from sand dredged from the bottom of the sea in the form of palm tree, the Burj Al Arab building, the world’s most luxurious hotel in the shape of a sail, and the Burj Khalifa, which is the location of the Armani hotel. The country also creates other tourist attractions such as the world’s biggest indoor snow park, ski resort, and the 7-star Palazzo Versace Hotel. Moreover for shopaholics Dubai is a promised land, with the world’s biggest shopping mall and the most beautiful and highest fountain to enjoy. Best of all, it’s free of charge!
