Dubai, the city known for its impressive buildings, is planning to build an artificial moon as a tourist attraction. The project is estimated to cost over £4 billion and is being led by Canadian entrepreneur Michael Henderson. The “moon” will be located on top of a 30-meter high skyscraper and will measure 274 meters in length.
The project, called “Moon,” aims to provide visitors with a space-like experience while still being on Earth. It will feature a mega-resort with a 4,000 room hotel, a 10,000 capacity arena, nightclub, wellness center, and other attractions for people of all ages.
Henderson believes that the project will have a significant impact on the UAE’s economy, particularly in the tourism sector. He claims that Dubai’s brand is known worldwide and that the moon project will further enhance its reputation.
Dubai is known for its architectural achievements, such as the Burj al Arab, the world’s tallest building at 828 meters. The city has also been a popular tourist destination and recently introduced the Golden Visa, which allows long-term residency and has attracted notable individuals from around the world.
While Dubai has experienced both periods of growth and economic downturns in the past, it continues to attract thousands of visitors each year. The city has gained attention for its ambitious projects, and the artificial moon is the latest addition to its list of unique attractions.
