BECAUSE DUBAI: Arabs are making a mall bigger than our MOA

3D rendering of Mall of the World

The United Arab Emirates is a nation packed with urban masterpieces no other country comes close. There was the Burj al-Arab, a hotel where only the rich and famous can stay for the night. Then, there was the Yas Island, an island made by the most ambitious people in history. And then, there's the tallest building in the world...the Burj Khalifa. This Arab nation is full of urban wonders the folks from Lonely Planet would only dream of. Now, the Arab nation has got even more ambitions for its sleeves because as approved by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, they're going to build a mall bigger than MOA, transforming Dubai, the most ambitious city in the world, into the shopping capital in the world. It will be the world's first temperature-controlled mall-city with a total area of 48 million square feet with the shopping center occupying 8 million square feet.

When finished, Mall of the World, Dubai is expected to have over 180 million visitors per year.
