In Dubai, the news never stops. And so are the surprises. With the aim of becoming the most coveted tourist destination between now and 2025, the most famous city in the UAE continues to announce new openings. More and more spectacular.

The latest, in chronological order, were the inauguration of Bluewaters - spectacular residential, commercial and tourist district overlooking the city skyline - and the Ain Dubai, the largest Ferris wheel in the world. It is located right on the new island, the wheel, and it is spectacular already to see it from afar, from the shores of Dubai Marina.

Connected to the mainland by elegant boardwalks (and reachable on foot via pedestrian access from The Beach JBR, by sea or thanks to the direct connection with Sheikh Zayed Road), the island of Bluewaters hosts a convention center, a beach club, courtyards, panoramic walkways surrounded by greenery. But above all, this islet in front of the Jumeirah Beach Residences (30 minutes from the airport and 20 from City Walk), engineering marvel which is the Ain Dubai.

250 meters high, the Dubai Ferris wheel is far taller than the Las Vegas High Roller (167 meters) and Staten Island's New York Wheel (190 meters), and is capable of accommodating up to 1.400 passengers in its 48 capsules, with 360 ° panorama over the city. Each arm is as long as 15 London buses, and climbing it promises to be a real spectacle.

But there is not only the Ferris wheel on Bluewaters Island. In fact, it is located in the background The Wharf, the trendy shopping area, with 132 stores, restaurants, trees and palm trees; there are quirky clubs, fine restaurants along the seafront, there are bars and bistros. It borders The Wharf Central Avenue, while North Walk and Wharf Avenue line the waterfront surrounding Ain Dubai Plaza, under the Ferris wheel. A pedestrian bridge 265 meters long, The Wharf Link, connects this area to The Beach on the Dubai coast.

Then there are, on the island, the Bluewaters Residences: 10 towers with 698 apartments, 4 penthouses and 17 townhouses overlooking the sea or Ain Dubai. And finally, there are the hotels: the Caesars Palace brand will bring the Residence Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai and Caesars Resort Bluewaters Dubai, a five-star hotel with a total of 495 luxury rooms, 80 apartments, a 500-seat theater and a state-of-the-art congress center. To complete the offer, for a glamorous hospitality, there will be Caesars Cove Beach Dubai, a splendid private beach club.

Always, with the background of the largest Ferris wheel in the world.
