In some countries of the Middle East petrodollars are abundant, but medium-term countries like Saudi Arabia, Dubai or Qatar should look for new forms of revenue due to the necessary energy change our planet is facing. As a result of this change, the majority of these Middle East countries are turning not only to renewable energy like solar energy, but also to tourism, building new buildings and incredible monumental architectural complexes.
We present you some sample destinations:
DUBAI, ABU DHABI & QATAR
Doha is the capital of Qatar, one of the richest countries in the world. Petroleum has converted this former military fortress into a modern city in constant growth. Doha has many attractions as museums; one of the most popular would be the Museum of Islamic Art.
Dubai, a city in the United Arab Emirates, allows us to enjoy high-quality hotels, beautiful beaches, the desert and the exoticism of Arabia. Above all, it is an exceedingly cosmopolitan metropolis in perpetual transformations, where construction goes far beyond the imagination, from an indoor ski facility to the world’s tallest building, to a completely submarine hotel.
Abu Dhabi, the opulent and vibrant capital of the United Arab Emirates, has become one of the most attractive destinations in the region for tourist around the world. You are sure to see some of the most representative examples of international modern architecture: in its cultural district there are several projects in the works by renowned architects Tadao Ando, Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel and Zaha Hadid.
