Burj el Arab.
Another symbol of the Arabian metropolis is the Burj el-Arab, a sailboat hotel easily recognizable by its distinctive shape. This is the calling card of a luxurious holiday in the Emirates, because the skyscraper is famous not only for its size and amazing appearance, but also for the highest level of service. Rooms are amazingly opulent and luxurious. As it is a rare tourist who can afford to stay in apartments, special tours are organized for those who want to see the decor of the mall with their own eyes.

When the city was built, territories were reclaimed not only from the desert – but also from the sea. From the monolithic stone, limestone and sand were created another famous landmarks of Dubai – artificial islands. Palm Jumeirah looks like a giant palm tree with its leaves and trunk lined with parks, malls, villas, residences, restaurants, and luxury hotels. The bulk islands of the Mir Archipelago are in the shape of the Earth's continents. They were originally conceived as secluded areas for the rich and famous people, and the names of most owners of the islands are kept secret. Palm Jabal Ali was designed to have thousands of bungalows and amusement parks standing on stilts in the water, but construction of the project has been frozen for now.
