Once a barren desert, Dubai is now a jewel in the crown of the Arabian Gulf. From the astonishing Burj Khalifa (the world's tallest building), to the beauteous Palm Jumeirah, to prestigious museums and The World islands, UAE is a testament to man's vision and ambitions. That’s why anyone can easily say that with all the vision and resources, UAE has become one of the world’s top tourist destinations.
