Dubai. Ten most ambitious and beautiful projects for the near future. See video!
Dubai is the most populous city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and the second biggest emirate by territorial size after the capital, Abu Dhabi.
By the 1960s Dubai economy was based on revenues from trade.
Oil was discovered in 1966. This helped accelerate the early development of the city, although its reserves are limited and production levels are low today.
However, Dubai has recently attracted attention through many innovative large construction projects and sports events.
The city has become symbolic for its skyscrapers and high-rise buildings, especially the world tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
Dubai was rated as one of the best places to live in the Middle East by American global consulting firm Mercer.
