We all know about the wealth and luxury of Dubai, which is part of the United Arab Emirates (Country) but here are the top 10 most amazing facts and interesting things that you will see in Dubai and nowhere else in the world.
1. Wild animals as car passengers
Cheetahs, leopards, lions and tigers – the sheikhs love them all as pets. To show them to the city, they drive their exotic pets around in their expensive vehicles.
2. Superstar private concerts
Forget about the giant cake and balloons – one Dubai Madonna fan paid $5m for her to perform at his party. Another Dubai resident spent $6m for Kanye West and Jay-Z to perform for his niece’s Sweet 16 birthday party.
3. Ultimate underwater experience
A 32m by 8 m window separates shoppers at a Dubai mall from the gigantic aquarium behind it. A Dubai hotel offers underwater suites at $8200 per night which have floor to ceiling views of the fishes.
4. Gold ATM machines
Ever feel like buying jewellery in the middle of the night? Now, in Dubai, you can. Not just jewellery, though, the ATM also offers gold bars and coins. It is so popular, it has to be refilled twice every week!
5. Supercar paradise
It seems every job can be done better with a supercar. We have seen Dubai police in their Ford Mustangs, Camaros, Lamborghinis, Ferraris and the 1,000 hp Bugatti Veyron. But now, even McDonald’s does its deliveries in gold-plated Jaguars and a Ferrari.
6. World’s largest man-made islands
If you fly over Dubai you will see these incredible islands of various shapes that you can recognise – there is a palm tree, the map of the Earth, and soon, even the Milky Way. All these are hotels and private residences.

In the Mall of the Emirates there is a full-sized ski resort that occupies 22,000sqft. It has ski lifts, jumps, a ski resort and even its own penguins, all maintained at -4 degrees.
8. High-rise tennis
Fancy playing tennis 1000ft in the air? You can, on a platform at the top of Dubai’s iconic sail-shaped hotel which is normally used as a helipad. Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic played an exhibition game there for promotional shots.
9. The world’s tallest building
At 2717 feet, the Burj Khalifa is 660 feet taller than world’s next tallest building. It comprises of 163 floors and contains an Armani hotel, nightclubs , swimming pools, corporate offices and private homes.
