Nakheel’s Palm Jumeirah named architectural ‘must see’ wonder

DUBAI, 5th February, 2015 (WAM) — Nakheel’s Palm Jumeirah island in Dubai has been named a ‘must-see architectural wonder’ by leading travel website, Expedia.

Palm Jumeirah, Nakheel’s flagship project, is among the world’s top places that travellers should visit according to Expedia’s list of essential sights, which was compiled in collaboration with architecture news website, Arch Daily. The website describes Nakheel’s man-made islands as ‘combining both structural and artistic genius with their elaborate palm tree shape’.

A Nakheel spokesman said, “Palm Jumeirah is living proof of Dubai’s growth, energy and ambition, and this accolade is a great honour for the island, Dubai and Nakheel. Palm Jumeirah has long been recognised as a landmark engineering achievement that helped to put Dubai on the world map. This endorsement further highlights how The Palm is not only a vibrant community and attraction for people living in Dubai, but a magnet for the millions of tourists who visit the emirate each year, too.”
