Burj Khalifa
Burj Khalifa Tower rises above Dubai, approaching the border of the lower atmosphere of the Earth. The height of the giant spire is 828 meters, its construction took six years and almost 1.5 billion dollars. Moreover, even such a wealthy emirate as Dubai could not finance the project alone and turned to the neighboring Abu Dhabi. Inside the tower has apartments, a hotel and offices. The last residential floor is at 584 meters, followed by a 244-meter steel spire.

Musical Fountain Dubai
The largest color-music fountain in the world, located on the artificial lake near the Burj Khalifa skyscraper. The design consists of several arcs, the height of the largest of them is 275 meters. During the presentation includes more than 6000 thousand sources of light. Thanks to the play of beams on the surface of the lake formed bizarre figures, reaching an incredible height of 150 meters.

Emirates Towers
A complex of two skyscrapers connected with each other by a shopping gallery. The height of the first tower is 354.6 meters (here are the office buildings), the second is 309 meters. (on its territory is a hotel). The complex has a swimming pool, a SPA-center, gyms. All this is placed on the separate "womens" and "mens" floors, according to Muslim customs. In the evening the Emirates Towers are beautifully illuminated.

Palm Islands
An artificial archipelago in the Persian Gulf including three islands: Palm Deira, Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Jumeirah. In the period 2001-2006 was the creation of the embankment, and in 2006 began construction on the finished islands. Communication with the mainland is made with the help of a 300-meter bridge. On the Palm Islands have built residential areas, villas, hotel complexes, as well as shopping centers and restaurants.

Dubai Marina
One of the new central districts of the city, located on the shores of an artificial bay. The houses are quite close to the water, so the view from the windows is magnificent, which is quite valuable for Dubai due to the lack of natural views. The Dubai Marina provides space for yachts to moor and there is a luxurious promenade and many scenic boulevards.

Bastakia District
The historic district of Dubai, which appeared in the early 19th century. Unlike modern neighborhoods, Bastakia has retained its traditional Arabic flavor. The area is built with typical stone houses decorated with wood and plaster. The first floors of the buildings contain souvenir shops, cafes, and antique stores. Inside, the residences are mostly remodeled in a modern way.
