With its more than 70 shopping centers, luxury hotels, awe-inspiring skyscape, and unique mix of the ancient and modern, Dubai is a dream destination for both international and armchair travelers. This splendidly photographed guide to the global city captures Dubai’s magnificence, from its striking and innovative buildings (both commercial and residential) to its new canal, from its souks and waterways to its state-of-the-art metro, monorail, and world-famous airport, and from its surrounding desert dunes to its waterfront restaurants, opera, golf courses, and sports stadiums. The book is a feast for the eyes with glorious images of the Jumeirah Mosque; the Burj Al Arab Hotel, which sits on an artificial island and connects to the mainland with a curving bridge; spices, colorful textiles, gold jewelry, and elaborately adorned shoes at the market; the Dubai Creek Tower, which will be the tallest in the world; as well as ghost towns, dockyards, marinas, and camels.
