City of Gold: Dubai, UAE

From what used to be described as a sleepy Gulf port has now earned the monicker, “City of Gold”, with its escalating business growth unfolding in a short period of time. The numerous glitzy high-rise edifices serve as a testament on how the city lives up to its name. The once desert outpost has also now become a destination for single tourists and families alike with its several man-made tourist attractions. With these achievements, the city demonstrates how mankind’s talent can flourish in a place that is seemingly scarce with natural advantages. It is a surprise how this place now known for its tallest building, largest dancing fountain, mammoth mall, and top-rated hotels was once mostly sand.
