His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice-President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, has announced that ‘Eid in Dubai,’ the family shopping, leisure and entertainment extravaganza hosted by the city to coincide with Eid Al Adha celebrations, will be extended to two weeks, with all participating shopping malls to be operational 24 hours a day.
First-time visitors will likely want to see landmark buildings such as the 160-storey Burj Khalifa – the tallest in the world – and the awe-inspiring Burj Al Arab hotel, which is a massive sail-shaped structure located on a man-made island off Dubai’s coast.
Malott also gave an example of what wouldn’t be built in China: “One Kilometer Tower,” a proposed supertall building that would be the first to reach 1,000 meters (3,281 feet). By comparison, the world’s highest building, recently completed Burj Khalifa in Dubai, tops out at a mere 828 meters (2,716 feet).
