The spectacular city of Dubai is one of the most opulent places in the world, and has a range of modern marvels that showcase the height of architectural achievement in the 21st century.
The Palm Islands
These are the biggest artificial islands in the world, and the result of a unique land reclamation project. The most remarkable aspect of this man-made marvel is the fact that the islands have been designed to resemble a palm tree. The Palm Islands added more than five hundred kilometres to the Dubai coastline.
In true testament to the UAE’s devotion to making things as big as possible, the Dubai Marina manages to be the world’s largest marina. This functions as a canal city, and is home to more than 120,000 residents. A visit to this place is definitely one of the top things to do in Deira Dubai, especially if you’re staying at a nearby resort such as AVANI Deira Dubai Hotel.
The Dubai Mall
As you may have guessed, yes…this is the largest mall in the world. The Dubai Mall is truly remarkable due to the sheer range of experiences that are available within it. In addition to the 1200+ retail stores and outlets, there’s an aquarium, a zoo, a massive entertainment zone and much more.
This building is a sight to behold. It is a truly astounding achievement since the entire structure has a twist of ninety degrees and is completely devoid of structural pillars.
