Are you looking for more reasons to be in Dubai this year? Well, you’re in the right place!

If there is anything you must look forward to in the Emirate of Dubai, it is looking upward into the surreal and superlative skyline. Dubai is a world-renowned crowd-puller from across the sphere, with many seeing it as a hub for leisure and business. It’s also home to the only seven-star hotel, the tallest building and the largest man-made island in the world, Dubai and its list of attractions are seemingly endless. And you now have seven more reasons to book round trip tickets to the second largest of the seven United Arab Emirates this year: 

 

1. Mohammed Bin Rashid Library

 

Opening: Mid-2020 (Exact date to be announced)

The Mohammed Bin Rashid Library (across from Dubai Creek from Dubai Festival City) is one of many architectural marvels in the Emirate. Along with the Dubai Dolphinarium, the Al Jaddaf locality will now have this seven-storey public library as well. From afar, you will believe that this world-class library bears a striking resemblance to an open book sitting on a rehl – a lectern that traditionally holds the Quran, and it does. The library will be positioned as a sanctuary of the nation’s cultural treasures, whether literature or media.
