The stunning Dubai is one of the most visited cities in the world, and the main reason is its luxurious buildings, shops, cars, beaches, and more. Everything here is without a doubt at a higher level and at least once in a lifetime, everyone should go for such a unique experience. However, the metropolis has been quite different at the beginning and this is exactly what we are going to discuss in this article. We will show you how Dubai has actually changed over time.
When people think about Dubai the first thing that comes in their minds is without a doubt the luxury of this location as well as rapid developments that emirate has made in such a short period of time. This rapid development is largely given to Sheikh Mohamed, who has been in power for more than 10 years now. During his reign, he hasn’t only implemented but governed as well plenty of changes as well as massive improvements to the emirate’s infrastructure and services. Mohamed sheds light on the economy which has doubled in the past ten years. Furthermore, the roads are also a lot safer today than they were in the past, not to mention the fact that UAE is now 16th on the competitive economy scale.
There are ten amazing and admirable ways that Dubai has changed and highly developed in the past ten years. For example, Dubai is without a doubt the leader in man-made developments. In 2003, the Dubai Marina didn’t exist. There was only a construction site and a large water-filled lake. Over ten years later, this location became an extremely popular location not only for residents but for tourists as well. The marina is man-made and it is home to various stunning structures such as Cayan Tower. Dubai is also home to the man-made Marasi Business Bay Promenade, which looks absolutely wonderful. Today, Dubai has the largest building in the entire world, the Burj Khalifa, and the biggest indoor theme park, IMG Worlds of Adventure. Furthermore, this city is also home to the largest shopping mall, the largest indoor aquarium, the biggest indoor ski slope, and the worlds most luxurious hotel.
What we are actually trying to point out is that this city has an ambitious mentality to break records. This type of attitude has helped to envision and create some of the most stunning buildings and attractions in the world. All the roads in Dubai are safer these days. Sheikh Mohammed’s explains that the rate of road accident fatalities has dropped from 15 to each 100 thousand population down to 5 to every 100 thousand. Those who don’t want to drive have the option of the Dubai Metro, which started operating in 2009 and it continues to expand at the moment. There are also improved RTA taxi services available, as well as private taxi options, RTA’S popular buses, water taxis, water buses, and ferries. Not only that, but the aviation services in Dubai have also improved quite a lot over the years. All in all, the city is definitely very different than it was 10 years ago, and changes certainly don’t stop here.
