12 Dec Dubai by Aaisha!
Dubai is in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), it is the most popular city in the UAE. It is located on the Emirates northern coastline and is the principal city of this area, Sharjah Ajman.
It is also a global hub and the business centre of the Middle East.
Yes Dubai is a very expensive place but it has beautiful hotels, restaurants and malls. I will show you some of the most popular places in Dubai.
- Burj Khalifa
The Burj Khalifa was known as the Burj Dubai before its inauguration, is I believe the tallest structure in the world, standing at 829.8m. it opened on the 6th January 2010 at a cost of 1.5 billion dollars. The entrance fee for one person is $40
- Burj al Arab
The Burj al Arab is a hotel in Dubai. It is the fourth tallest hotel in the world. I opened in December 1999. It is a symbol of modern Dubai.
- The Palm Island
It consists of a tree trunk with a palm of sixteen fronds. It is one of the largest artificial islands in the world. The project took four years of planning and research.
The first stage was to create a foundation which needed the transfer of sand and rocks. The second phase consisted of the construction of extensions and basic services. This included building a bridge which links the three islands and the mainland.
The three islands are Jumirah Palm, Palm Jabel Al Ali (named after a mountain range) and Deira Palm.
These three places are very famous, but there are many more beautiful places in Dubai. I wish that you could go so you can see with your own eyes that Dubai is the most beautiful city in the world!
