I think the tallest tower is not enough for Dubai, they decide to add some more record-breaking construction, so, here it is, the biggest shopping mall on the planet, complete with climate-controlled streets, the world’s largest indoor theme park and 100 hotels and apartments. And there are more, this mall occupies 48 million square feet, it also contains health resorts, theatres, a Celebration Steet modelled on the Ramblas boulevard in Barcelona and ‘retail streets network’ that will stretch over four-and-a-half miles. And the climate-controlled may attract visitors even in summer, for the soaring temperatures in summer can reach nearly 50C.
Looks like Dubai’s ambition to become a year-round tourism destination is going to realized.
