The capital of the emirate of Dubai is one of the world's centres of luxury tourism and a great playground for architects. Be amazed by the sheer scale of its architectural achievements: the sumptuous Burj Al Arab hotel overlooking the sea; the gigantic Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest skyscraper; the impressive Dubai Marina; the astonishing man-made island of Palm Jumeirah...
