11 of the world’s highest skyscrapers are coming to DubaiSun 21 May 2023
Dubai: Dubai has quickly become the preferred location for scores of the world’s most remarkable architectural marvels in the decades since its transformation from a fishing town to a modern-day city.
Not only is the city home to the world’s tallest structure, the Burj Khalifa, but it also boasts over 25 buildings taller than 300m – much more than any other city in the world, according to a Zoom Property Insights analysis.
A slew of additional skyscrapers slated to join the city’s skyline in the next years are expected to boost the city’s tourist attractiveness even more, including what is likely to be the world’s highest hotel and an observation deck that would surpass even the Burj Khalifa.
