To The Sky

The Burj Khalifa dwarfs previous record holders as the world’s largest building with over 300 meters, and is one of the greatest achievements in engineering history. It is truly a wonder of the world and a must-see when in Dubai, particularly during sunset. Stretching 5.5 km into the Arabian Gulf, the Palm Jumeirah is so vast that it is visible from space. It is another absolutely remarkable construction; a structure everyone thought could never be built. Today, it stands as a testament to the resilience and determination of Dubai.
