It’s truly amazing to see how Dubai has grown and developed in recent years. This city and emirate of the United Arab Emirates rapidly transformed over several decades into a hypermodern metropolis, full of innovative skyscrapers bordered by desert.
The Burj Khalifa is the most recognizable landmark in Dubai, although the artificial island resort Atlantis, The Palm is equally unbelievable. The city is also a haven for retail therapy, with the massive Dubai Mall home to countless luxury stores. Come nightfall, Dubai comes alive with a diverse nightlife scene.
