Dubai’s world-famous Palm Jumeirah island has been named a ‘must-see architectural wonder’ by leading travel website Expedia.
Palm Jumeirah, master developer Nakheel’s flagship project, is among the world’s top places that travellers should visit according to Expedia’s list of essential sights, which was compiled in collaboration with architecture news website ‘Arch Daily’.
The website describes Nakheel’s manmade islands as ‘combining both structural and artistic genius with their elaborate palm tree shape’.
“Palm Jumeirah is living proof of Dubai’s growth, energy and ambition, and this accolade is a great honour for the island, Dubai and Nakheel,” a Nakheel spokesman said.
“Palm Jumeirah has long been recognised as a landmark engineering achievement that helped to put Dubai on the world map. This endorsement further highlights how The Palm is not only a vibrant community and attraction for people living in Dubai, but a magnet for the millions of tourists who visit the emirate each year, too.” More info
