Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and of course a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music.
On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.
Dubai has the world’s tallest building, largest number of artificial islands, and is building the first hotel that will have its own rainforest. It manages to add another world first to its list of attractions with the new opening of the world’s largest indoor theme park.
