Dubai’s glo’up is like no other. The legendary transformation of the city from a barren desert to an urban hub of all things modern and high-tech, Dubai has outdone itself in so, so many ways that one just cannot overlook.
Recently a tweep shared a BRILL throwback video of Dubai’s 32 year-long journey, and no matter how many times the video surfaces, it never fails to impress. From 1984 to 2016 the Google timelapse shows impressive progress of Dubai coast’s over the last the past three decades.
From the short 44-second video, it can be seen that the development of the city boomed from the early 2000s and things were uphill from there.
The UK based tweep further praised Dubai’s massive and rapid globalisation in his tweet
