Dubai, A Land of Superlatives
The largest. The tallest. The best. These are some of the most common expressions used when describing Dubai, the most visited emirate of the 7 United Arab Emirates. The largest shopping mall? The tallest man-made structure? The largest indoor-skiing facilities? These and other ongoing mega-projects are all to be found in Dubai.
Strategically positioned between the East and West, Dubai thrives on its vision for the future, constantly aiming to become one of the most developed and prosperous places on earth. That vision, personified by Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, translates into a kind of energy only experienced in Dubai.
