The Dubai Fountain

Dubai at Night

featuring the Righteous Brothers and Etta James

A successful port city with a history as a trade center, Dubai on the south edge of the Persian Gulf is one of the world’s fastest-growing cities and has become one of the world’s leading tourist destinations.

Significant foreign investment and revenues from oil and tourism have financed several amazing development projects. Several sets of artificial islands have been built and developed for residential projects and resorts. The spectacular Dubai Fountain, featured in this eScapes episode, is the world’s tallest “dancing fountain” and is located outside the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building with a height of 2,717 feet.
