Dubai – city of the future
Dubai is the largest tourist centre of the United Arab Emirates. In one city you can see many of the world's most significant buildings.
Dubai is famous for its ultra-modern buildings and places of interest, so, if you don't want to miss any of them, use the city guide. Popular places on the map: the Burj Al Arab Tower and the world's highest singing fountain, situated right in front of the Burj Khalifa with jet heights of up to 150 metres. Among the other “must-see” points of the city is one of the world's largest aquariums and shopping mall. A separate pride of urban planners is the group of artificial islands; Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali, Deira Island and the whole archipelago, The World, which are located near the coast.
Transport in the city is represented by a developed network of bus services, a pleasant feature of which was the arrangement of closed stops with air-conditioning. In a desert climate, this step became a vital necessity. The development of the project of taxi-helicopters, which will transport tourists and city residents through the air, is being actively pursued. The introduction of such a service will become a global technical breakthrough and another attraction of Dubai.
