作者:Sarah Jacobs / Business Insider | 圖片 1 /共 18 張: <p>Just 16 years ago, Dubai was a sparse desert outpost. Today, it's home to the 2,716-foot Burj Khalifa - <a href="http://www.businessinsider.com/the-tallest-buildings-in-the-world-2015-12?utm_source=msn.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=msn-slideshow&utm_campaign=bodyurl"> the tallest building in the world</a> - as well as the 1,358-foot Princess Tower and more than 150 other towering skyscrapers. Multimillion-dollar apartments and a bustling tourist scene have put Dubai on the radar of the ultra-wealthy.</p><p> Some are even calling Dubai "the Manhattan of the Middle East," but its year-round sunshine and warm weather is an advantage that even New York City can't beat. Trendy restaurants and bars, water sports, and other attractions keep both the locals and foreigners happy, and its skyline is a new level of urban beauty.</p><p> Ahead, see 17 photos of what life is like in the United Arab Emirates' biggest city.</p>

16年前,杜拜還只是個荒涼的沙漠小鎮,現今是聳入雲霄的摩天大樓臨立,不但有全球最高達2716呎的摩天大樓哈里發塔,還有1358呎高的公主塔,以及其他150棟大大小小的摩天大樓。價值好幾百萬美金的大廈及繁華景點已經讓杜拜成為指標性的土豪之都。

近來,杜拜更被譽為中東曼哈頓,但全年的陽光、溫暖的天氣,這是紐約也無法戰勝的優勢。此外,當地有熱門餐廳、酒吧、水上運動及觀光景點都大大滿足當地人與旅客,呈現現代城市之美。
