The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MATTA FAIR -

MOD­ERN and bustling, Dubai city is sit­u­ated in the United Arab Emi­rates ( UAE). Over the past two decades, it has be­come one of the most lux­u­ri­ous metropoli­tan cities in the world. Oil trade has trans­formed this small fish­ing town into one of the world’s rich­est des­ti­na­tions. If you choose to travel here, you would be amazed and im­pressed by its beauty.

This is where moder­nity and de­vel­op­ment of Is­lamic cul­ture is fused, mak­ing the city of Dubai a pre­mium tourist des­ti­na­tion of in­ter­na­tional stand­ing.

Here are five won­ders of Dubai not to be missed:

Burj Al- Khal­ifa, lo­cated in the heart of Dubai, is not only the tallest build­ing in the Mid­dle East, but through­out the world with a height of 321 me­ters and 60 floors and houses the Dubai Mall.
