Dubai ,june 5: A pair of remarkable pictures shows how far the Emirati city of Dubai has come in a relatively short amount of time, comparing and contrasting the desert city over the past 40 years or so.
The pictures are taken from a pretty similar perspective and show that the skyscrapers, bright lights, and huge highways weren’t always there.
In fact, once upon a time there were only a handful of buildings, a big roundabout, and not a great deal else.
We’re delighted to be here at the Arabian Travel Market 2021, bringing you a glimpse of Expo 2020 Dubai! Don't miss the chance to visit us until 19 May at Dubai World Trade Centre – Hall 3, Stand ME-3110. #Expo2020 #Dubai #ATMDubai pic.twitter.com/990Z21oREJ— Expo 2020 Dubai (@expo2020dubai) May 17, 2021
One of the few things to remain the same between the two pictures is the Toyota Building – as it is known by locals – in the foreground.
