What makes Dubai so great?
It’s a very rich city and is famous for having some of the most incredible buildings in the world. In fact, it actually has the tallest building in the world and it’s called the Burj Khalifa.
It’s hard to think that just 100 years ago it was a small town with only a few Bedouin traders.
It has loads of amazing places, here’s a few of the best…

Have you ever seen water dance?
Well The Dubai Fountain is the world’s largest choreographed fountain system!
The fountain squirts 22,000 gallons of water 150 metres into the air!
Each colourful jet sways in time to music – it’s one of the most popular shows in Dubai.
Palm IslandsEmbed from Getty Images
These are three islands that all look a bit like palm trees.
The amazing thing about these islands is that they’re all man-made!
You can buy a house on them but you’ll need a lot of money to do that, so you better get saving if you like the look of it.
