The city’s new landmark and tourist attraction will be open in time for the arrival of Expo 2020. Sitting in the middle of Dubai’s latest destination, Bluewaters, Ain Dubai will be a tourist attraction in its own right, offering spectacular views of the Dubai Marina skyline on one side and the Arabian Gulf on the other.
An absolutely massive cruise harbour is coming to Dubai Marina, and it’s going to be the region’s first-ever dedicated cruise port. Set to open in October 2020 the Dubai Cruise Terminal will be operated by Meraas and will form part of Dubai Harbour, the massive new development that’s currently being constructed off the coast of Dubai Marina. Naturally, it will become the region’s main hub for cruise liners and ships visiting the area, and will feature a 1km-long quay, comprised of two main cruise terminal buildings. The 300,000sq ft terminal will accommodate two “mega” cruise ships simultaneously – hosting a capacity of more than 15,000 guests, but it will also provide a striking architectural addition to the city’s coastline.
The Museum of the Future
It’s promised to combine “elements of exhibition, immersive theatre and themed attraction, the Museum of the Future invites you to look beyond the present and take your place within possible worlds to come”.
This is one for full-on golf fans and those who might just have a passing interest, and it’s a big, big one. What’s Topgolf, you ask? Well, it’s like a driving range, if it was all about fun, and not about improving your technique. Each ball has a tracker in it, and you compete against your mates in a series of challenges, to get it closest to a target for example. There will be music, food and beverages, and is designed to appeal to everyone, even non-golfers.
