Even though having existed for centuries, most of the ancient nations are not economic or financial hubs for the time being. Dubai, one of the touristic and already business cores of the world, managed to be one for only a couple of decades. Sure, hardly could this be so but for the sudden discovery of black gold. Nonetheless, the reality is that Dubai is the fastest growing city on earth and, year by year, new edifices rise to reinforce its popularity particularly among tourists.
So, what are the most exciting upcoming projects in Dubai which will attract more millions of visitors?
