Now travellers to Dubai have another attraction to add to their list of must-see. Opening on October 21 this year is Ain Dubai, the world’s tallest and largest observation wheel.
Ain Dubai will take guests to a height of 250 meter (m) for a grand view of the city’s skyline. In comparison, the London Eye (UK) is 135m while the Ferris Wheel on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada (US) is 158.5m. But it is not about height alone.
