Marvel at Dubai’s greatest construction project – manmade archipelagos, created using rock blasted from nearby mountains and sand dredged from the bottom of the Persian Gulf. They will increase Dubai’s shoreline by several hundred miles, and provide space for luxury apartments. Palm Jumeirah is shaped like a giant palm tree and can be seen from space.
Take your group on a fascinating visit to the pioneering high-tech eco-project, Masdar City. Set 17km outside the city of Abu Dhabi, a green print for sustainable urban development. The city is car free, relying entirely on solar energy and other renewable energy sources, with a sustainable, zero-carbon, zero-waste ecology. Take a tour of the Masdar Institute and visit the Siemens Ingenuity for Life Centre. There will be a chance to experience the Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) driverless vehicle.
The graceful structure of the Burj al Arab – Tower of the Arabs – is instantly recognisable, its shape mimicking the sail of a ship. At 321, it is the fourth-tallest hotel in the world, and is set on an artificial island out from Jumeirah beach. It offers ‘seven star’ luxury, with a fleet of white Rolls-Royces on the forecourt and dancing fountains in the foyer.
The tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa stands at 828m – seven times the height of Big Ben. Take the high-speed lift to the Observation Deck ‘At the Top’ on the 124th floor, where you can easily spot The World, the three Palm developments and other Dubai landmarks. Up to 13,000 workers built Burj Khalifa, at times putting up a new floor in just three days.
