When it comes to extravagant living and total richness, you can’t go without mentioning Dubai. I like to call this place “The Land of Money”. You’d be hard pressed to find something middle-class in this place. Everything is expensive, everything is lavish, everything is amazing and it takes a special kind of person to possess it all. So let’s take a look at this image gallery and prove that Dubai as a whole is absolutely brimming with cash.
1. The tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa
This incredible building stands at nearly 3000ft (914.4m) tall, and that makes it literally penetrate through the clouds. 163 floors in here.

2. One of the largest shopping malls in the world
Dubai Mall spans 3.77 million square feet of space, located within the Burj Khalifa complex, and based on area occupied, it is, in fact, the largest shopping mall in the world. There are over 1200 shops here, including the largest candy store in the world, and a whole dedicated SEGA game center.
3. The largest flower garden in the world?
That would be Dubai’s Miracle Garden.

This hotel is one of the most expensive in the world, and it’s built on a man-made island.

What hotel isn’t complete without an aquarium?
And of course, Starbucks, located nearby.
5. You can play tennis in the sky!
Yes, really. You can play tennis in the sky at the Burl Al Arab Court, but don’t chase the ball if it’s out.
6. Two sets of man-made islands in Dubai.
The Palm Islands
These islands are shaped like branches and are covered in luxury homes, and these islands are also the home of the aforementioned Atlantis Hotel.
