The city of a superlatives
In Dubai, every building you see is more original and amazing than the last. Palm Island, the artificial island built in the shape of a palm tree, is of course a must, and so are The World, a colossal cluster of 300 artificial islands, and the Waterfront, an artificial archipelago in the Persian Gulf, both architectural ‘folies’ that make Dubai such an impressive and unforgettable destination.
