Welcome to Downtown Dubai
Dubai's vibrant and urban centrepiece is anchored by the 828m-high Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest structure, and also brims with other distinctive and futuristic architecture, especially along Sheikh Zayed Rd and in the Dubai Design District. Downtown blockbuster sights include the Dubai Mall, the Dubai Fountain and the new Dubai Opera. Also new is the Dubai Canal that cuts through Business Bay before spilling into the Gulf. Further south, in Al Quoz, Alserkal Avenue has evolved into Dubai's main alternative arts and creative hub.
