Share post:

On December 2, The United Emirates (UAE) completed its 50 years and believes in setting unbreakable records.  Be it the world’s tallest building to the deepest diving pool, UAE doesn’t believe in the impossible and these record-breaking achievements prove it.


Ain Dubai (“Dubai Eye”) – the world’s largest Ferris Wheel was opened in October 2021. It is 250 metres (820 feet) from the ground to the top of its rim and towers above the Bluewaters artificial island. 

The ride consists of 48 carriages that can hold 40 people and it takes 38 minutes to complete a full rotation. 


Then is the needle-shaped Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building which is a shining achievement in the history of UAE. The skyscraper is 828 metres (2,717-feet) high and is made up of glistening glass and steel. 

Initially, the building was known as Burj Dubai in 2010 – before its inauguration. It was renamed Burj Khalifa in honour of UAE’s President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.


Situated in Dubai’s Zabeel Park is a 150-metre-high Dubai frame which is also known as the ‘world’s largest picture frame’. It was opened in January 2018.

The 93 metres wide structure is made up of 2,000 tonnes of steel and 2,900 metres of laminated glass. It also features more than 15,000 square metres of gold-coloured stainless steel. 


In 2013, UAE opened its first-ever Dubai Miracle Garden that earned a Guinness World Record for creating the largest floral installation, a life-size model of an Emirates A380 Airbus. 

The Airbus consisted of moving engine turbines, made with the help of five million flowers by a crew of over 200.


In June Dubai added another record to its list of existing accomplishments – the world’s deepest swimming pool for diving. The Deep Dive Dubai is an indoor facility for scuba diving that is 60 metres (196 feet) deep.

Here divers can explore an artificial sunken city, play chess and navigate through caves.


Jebel Jais Flight opened in January 2018 is the world’s longest zipline (2,831 metres), located in Dubai’s Ras Al-Khaimah. Riders can reach speeds up to 150 kilometres (93 miles) per hour as they zip through the Hajar mountain range.
