1 Big Buildings and Businesses
One of the things that some people in Dubai clearly like to boast about, when they things are built in this city they have a tendency to go big or go home. Exemplified by the fact that the tallest structure in the world was built there, the Burj Khalifa is far from the only massive thing that has been created within the city borders. For instance, the tallest hotel in the world, biggest mall, and largest aquarium and second largest manmade marina also all exist in Dubai.
2 You Can Ski There
A city that we all know does not exist far from the desert, it may seem safe to assume you will never need a winter jacket in Dubai but not so fast. That is because someone decided to build a resort that is aptly named Ski Dubai in the city. Highlighted by a manmade mountain that is covered in artificial snow, it has brought the joys of downhill skiing to an area of the world that would otherwise never get to experience it.
