We are going to talk about Dubai's tourists attractions and other facts about Dubai such as land form features, soil conditions etc.
The Burj Khalifa
The Burj Khalifa is the tallest structure built. The Bruj Khalifa proudly stands at the heart of Dubai at the height of 828 meters (2716.5 feet) honors Dubai with a new glow.
The Burj Khalifa is the world's tallest free standing structure and has the world's longest elevator travel distance in the world. The Burj Khalifa was actually called the Burj Dubai but the Sheik(Mayor) of Abu Dhabi bought it. The price still remains a mystery but it would be worth around 500 billions dollars. The Burj Khalifa took more than 380 skilled engineers to cpmplete. The total construction took about
22 million man hours to complete. There are 200 floors in Burj Khalifa but we are only allowed to go to floor 128. If you have seen the Burj Khalifa you would its broad to narrow that is because there is no crane that high so they made the step kinda thing so it can reach the top. I'll explain.
History and Facts
about the Burj Al Arab
In 1993 architect Tom Wright took on the challenge of building the Bruj Al Arab hotel. It involved more than 3500 workmen to complete the construction of the hotel. And It took almost 2 years just to reclaim the island to build the hotel on.
Burj Al Arab is the world's only 7 star hotel and has the best service in the world.
The Burj Al Arab has 4 towers in front the hotel which release a controlled amount of non-toxic propane gas into the air creating fireballs which reflects in the hotel's exterior glass creating an optical illusion.
When you enter the Burj Al Arab hotel the waiters will give you a 24kt golden iPad but you have to return it to the hotel after your stay.

Best Time to Visit Dubai
The best time to visit Dubai is in the winter. Dubai is close to large areas of deserts which makes it very hot in Summer. And if you are a shopper you want to visit Dubai in January to hit the shopping festival.
Land Form Features
Dubai is in the U.A.E region which is near large areas of desert. This makes it very hot in summer and warm in winter. Although Dubai is near large bodies of water which makes it warm in the winter and cool in the summer, but it's not cool enough in Summer to make the weather bearable. Its been 50 degree Celsius once which made it really hard to go outside
Vegetation in Dubai
Dubai is in the U.A.E which mainly consists of deserts with very little amount of rain fall in the winter months and long hot summers. Vegetation through out the country is dominated by arid zone species.
Soil conditions in Dubai is generally poor due to the desert environment. Since Dubai lies directly within the Arabian desert the soil mainly consists of sand which is not good for vegetation.
Dubai has many environmental issues, such as the lack of fresh water, the lack of energy, the lack of natural resources and the garbage problems. Dubai is struggling with the environmental issues after it's growth. Since Dubai is situated near deserts, Dubai is lacking fresh water. After the city's booming developments, the city is also lacking power. Although Dubai is a very good tourist attraction but it is not a very considerable place for people to live
The Formula Rossa
The Formula Rossa is the world's fastest roller coaster traveling at the speed of 240km/hour it is the same speed you will experience if you were a F-1 driver. The car is designed like the Ferrari Formula One to discover how fast the Ferrari really is. The ride only takes about 59 seconds for a 2.07 km track. Here is a video.

Palm Jumeirah is one of my favourite tourist attraction. It is so beautiful that you cant imagine. Palm Jumeirah is shaped like a palm for the top view. It is a mad-made structure. The total area of Palm Jumeirah is 800 football fields. Palm Jumeirah has a lot of stuff like hotels, shopping malls, stores etc. The most famous hotel is the Atlantis. The Atlantis is a big hotel and a part of it is underwater which makes it cool.
