Creek Dubai or Khor Dubai, is a saltwater creek located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Previously, it extended to Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary but as part of the new Dubai canal, it extends through to the Arabian Gulf.
The Dubai Mall is the second-largest mall by total land area, and the 26th-largest shopping mall in the world by gross leasable area, tying with West Edmonton Mall and Fashion Island — both of which are older than it. It has a total retail floor area of 502,000 square meters.
Dubai Fort is situated in the south of Dubai Creek, at the Al Souk Al Kabir area which teems with vigorous trade and is close to the Ruler's Court (the monarch's divan). It was built back in 1787, about 200 years ago, as the premises of the monarch and a fort of defense, since it sat on the border of the urban Dubai at the time. Later on, this fort turned into an arsenal for artillery and weapons. It was also used as a prison for the outlaws.
To celebrate the heritage of the country, the rulers of UAE decided to open the palace open to the public in 2019. Prior to its opening, the palace was used only for official purposes, namely hosting foreign leaders of states, and for meetings of the country's supreme council and the federal cabinet.
The Dubai Fountain is a choreographed fountain system. It is set on the 12 hectares manmade Burj Khalifa Lake, at the center of the Downtown Dubai development in Dubai. It was designed by WET Design, a California-based company also responsible for the fountains at the Bellagio Hotel Lake in Las Vegas. Illuminated by 6,600 lights and 50 colored projectors, it is 275 m long and shoots water up to 500 ft into the air accompanied by a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music.
The Burj Khalifa, known as the Burj Dubai prior to its inauguration in 2010, is a skyscraper in Dubai. With a total height of 829.8 m and a roof height of 828 m, the Burj Khalifa has been the tallest structure and building in the world since its topping out in 2009. Construction of the Burj Khalifa began in 2004, with the exterior completed five years later in 2009.
