Not only that, Dubai is a place full of underground railroads, tennis courts, gold cars, and the tallest building in the world. We are going to tell you about such weird things only in Dubai. See if you knew there were things like this in the world before.
#1. Gold Lamborghini in Dubai
You may wonder if there is not a gold car in Dubai since they have Gold Ice Cream, Gold ATM. What do you do if you have enough money to buy anything? Imagine a gold car. This is a Gold Lamborghini car that anyone with that kind of money can buy. It is valued at $ 7.5 million and is made of 1100 pounds of gold. It is also the most expensive car in the world. This gold car with a V12 engine can travel at 100 kmph in just 2.9 seconds. Also, the person who buys this car will get three Guinness World Records with the Lamborghini.
According to reports, we will soon see a bullet train going under the sea of Dubai. The Government of Dubai has purchased 18 bullet trains from Japan for the US $ 964 million for this project. Also, a high-speed railway system plan to construct for this purpose. The majority of tourists coming to Dubai come from the Indian subcontinent. Therefore, this railway line will be built from India to Fujairah in Dubai. This project will help to increase the number of tourists coming from countries around India. These bullet trains will reduce the time for them to arrive in Dubai. In addition to that price of these train tickets is planned to be affordable for the middle class.
#3. Palm Jumeirah in Dubai
The state of Dubai began creating a new archipelago in 2001. The new archipelago is being created by dumping about three billion cubic feet of sand from the Persian Gulf into the sea near the city of Dubai. The first housing complex built on these islands, consisting of hotels and housing complexes, opened in 2006. It is also planned to have 120,000 inhabitants by the time construction is completed. However, ecologists say that this artificial archipelago has a profound effect on the environment. They say this is causing significant changes in the patterns of the ocean waves to the oceans, flora, and fauna surrounding the area.
In 2009 the New York Times reported that according to NASA satellites, the Palm Jumeirah Island is sinking by 0.20 inches per year. It has also been suggested that the islands could be completely submerged in the future due to rising sea levels.
#4. Camel Races
The Camel Race has been around in the Middle East for thousands of years. Now, it has become quite popular to use a robot to guide the camels from the camel horses instead of a human jockey in these races. The use of this robot jockey started in 2004. Currently, several countries such as Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Qatar are using this robot jockey for Camel Race. The government started designing these robots in 2001. However, these camels race with humans, so the first use of robot jockeys was not very successful. But later, when robots create to look like humans, the work was successful.
#5. Snowboarding in a Shopping Mall
Everyone knows Dubai is a desert region. Everyone must have wondered how these snow sports can found in Dubai. Dubai kingdom holds 103 Guinness World Records including, the tallest building in the world, the world’s longest handmade gold necklace, and many more.

They agreed in 2017 between the Dubai Police and the company. The company has now handed over their latest S3 2019 flying bike to the Dubai Police. Also, the Dubai Police has started training their officers to ride this bike. However, due to the limited battery life of this bike, it is not possible to keep it in the air for a long time. In the future, they are working to increase the battery power and make it suitable for long-time operations of police in Dubai.
