This small corner in the southeast of the Arabian Peninsula in the Persian Gulf is a federation of seven emirates. Out of the seven, Dubai stands out for its magnanimous buildings, stretching both up into the sky and vertically across the horizons. An example is the Burj Khalifa (828 meters) which is currently the world's tallest building. Dubai is also notable for Palm Islands, the three largest man-made islands in the world. The Arab Emirates is a destination of shopping and luxury tourism; however, if you take a walk through its streets you will find museums, attractions and ancient buildings that are spectacular when seen alongside the very modern constructions.
