Cornucopia’s travel guide

Dubai


A city-state in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is located within the emirate of the same name, and here the heights of modern Islamic architecture are reached, quite literally, The 830m Khalifa Tower, the world’s tallest building is based on the triple-lobed shape of a desert flower, and the opening on Valentine’s Day 2013 of the Miracle Garden – the “largest natural flower garden in the world” – shows the continued Arabic love of gardens. The oldest building in Dubai is the Al Fahidi Fort, from 1797, which houses the Dubai Museum, where the archaeological collection includes Ummayad finds from Jumeirah. Dubai has more than 40 art galleries, Christie’s has been selling art here since 2007, and the annual Art Dubai is a top international fair. The proposed Culture Village promises more.
