It all began with one man’s vision: His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai. It was from this vision that a tiny fishing village was transformed into one of the most modern metropolises in the world. What was originally regarded with great skepticism has, in the meantime, gained admiration worldwide.
