Through this set of 6 images what we are trying to convey is the story of Dubai, which transformed itself from a land of desert, camels and bedouins to the most revered city in the world. Its is sheerly because of the undaunted vision of its leaders and spirit of its people.
Dubai a city known for being the glitterati of cities, which is talked about as one of the most contemporary and forward thinking cities in the world with many 1sts. Tourists flock from across the world to see the tallest tower – Burj Khalifa, or the most luxurious hotels in the world.
