Dubai is one of the world’s most important travel destinations, and it's absolutely no surprise why. Synonymous with luxury, Dubai has become one of the most sought-after places to visit in the world and not just for travelers en route to the far east.   It has something for everyone, a true melting pot of cultures, expats come to live in this ultra modern and dynamic city for its security, stability, comfort and opportunity.

Designed by architect Shaun Killa, from space missions to bioengineering, its seven floors envisage how science and technology will shape the next 50 years of humanity. Incredibly impressive!

  • Another architectural beauty that should not be missed for its beauty and complexity of Dame Zaha Hadid's first project in the UAE, the Sheikh Zayed Bridge. Its fluid silhouette is a sight to behold, especially at night as the lighting system comes on. Connecting Abu Dhabi to Saadiyat Island, Zaha Hadid's work on Sheikh Zayed Bridge is said to be one of the most complex bridges ever built.
