The most iconic buildings in Dubai have proven to be big draws for tourists visiting the state.

The iconic structures of Dubai have been shown to be big attractions for people visiting the emirate, with the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing compiling a list of the most popular sites for tourists.

Dubai counts a number of impressive structures among its buildings, including the Burj Khalifa, which is recognised as being the world’s tallest building.

Other impressive structures in the emirate include the Burj Al Arab, which is regarded as being one of the world’s most luxurious hotels and the Dubai Mall, which is one of the largest shopping centres boasting a huge range of outlets.

The tourism industry also has a big impact on the nation’s economic growth, as restaurants and hotels contributed 3.7 per cent to its gross domestic product in 2010.

Dubai could soon have another impressive attraction, as plans have been announced to construct  a hotel that is partly located under water.
