Dubai and the UAE

Dubai architecture

  • Burj Khalifa
    The world’s tallest building at 828 metres high, Burj Khalifa is not just a record-breaking feat of engineering, it is also a symbol of the pioneering spirit and progressive mind set of Dubai.
  • Cayan Tower
    Formerly known as the Infinity Tower, the striking Cayan Tower is among the world’s tallest buildings with a 90-degree twist, a seemingly impossible shape that gives it a distinctly futuristic look.
  • Dubai Canal
    This manmade marvel stretches 3.2 kilometres long, connecting the Dubai Creek to the Arabian Gulf. Take a leisurely cruise down the waterway or enjoy a stroll along the waterfront and enjoy the changing colours of its waterfall.
  • Dubai Creek
    Before the skyscrapers and cutting-edge technology, life in Dubai began at the Creek. Step into history as you walk its labyrinthine alleyways, through the gold, textile and spice souks and into the heart of the emirate.
  • Dubai Frame
    The clear glass bridge that connects the parallel towers gives the Dubai Frame its iconic structure, offering panoramic views of Old and New Dubai at 150 metres above ground.
  • Dubai Mall
    With over 1,300 shops, 200 dining options, an indoor theme park, ice rink, aquarium and underwater zoo, the Dubai Mall is more than just a shopping mall - it’s a complete leisure and lifestyle destination.
  • Dubai Marina
    The world’s largest manmade marina brings the Arabian Gulf practically to your doorstep. Along its 3 kilometre-long waterway stand some of the tallest and most uniquely designed residential towers in the world.
  • Dubai Opera
    Designed like the traditional sailing vessel, the dhow, the Dubai Opera is a dynamic structure that easily converts from traditional theatre and concert hall to banquet hall and exhibition space as needed.
  • Jumeirah Beach Hotel
    The wave-inspired Jumeirah Beach Hotel is the perfect complement to the nearby sail-shaped Burj Al Arab. It also sits on one of the best stretches of beach along the Dubai coastline, a family favourite for relaxing weekends.
  • Madinat Jumeirah
    Literally meaning “City of Jumeirah”, Madinat Jumeirah is patterned after ancient citadels, complete with a traditional souk and winding alleyways that connect 4 hotels in a luxury resort complex.
  • Palm Jumeirah
    Palm Jumeirah is one of the largest manmade islands in the world and is home to residential buildings and waterfront villas, as well as a glamorous array of 5-star hotels, including the Atlantis, The Palm.
  • The Walk and Beach at JBR
    The Walk is a chic waterfront strip where you can stroll, dine, shop and even catch a movie by the water – the perfect way to cap off your day spent swimming, sunbathing or enjoying the water sports at the Beach at JBR.
