Dubai presents a kaleidoscope of past and present. Wind towers sit beside glittering skyscrapers, desert dunes roll into green golf courses and luxury yachts sail the wind alongside traditional dhows. Against a backdrop of a carefully preserved heritage, Dubai is building a visionary future. The world’s tallest tower, Burj Khalifa, The Palm is a trio of man-made projects, and the first since the Great Wall of China to be visible from space. Capitalizing on its central location between east and west, the Arabian Gulf has expanded rapidly over the past decades with its economy now based around trade, manufacturing and tourism.
