Now if you google them, you'll find your computer screen unable to accommodate the size of towers which form a part of the UAE skyline as a whole. That being said, let's take you through a pictorial journey of this extreme metamorphosis UAE has seen in its culture, architecture and standard of living as a whole.

Watch this informative video to get an idea of the surprisingly quick change:

Starting from 1972 (December 1971 to be precise), these four decades have seen a mind boggling mutation from being just a desert to the entertainment capital of the world. Every film-maker, every musician, the technology, and science community, just EVERYONE is keen on making a mark in this country.

Till next time 😉
