DUBAILAND was launched in 2003 by Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Envisioned as a regional and global tourism hub, DUBAILAND is spread over 3 billion square feet and hosts a number of sports, leisure, entertainment and shopping attractions that are either operational or under development.
Today, DUBAILAND is a growing district of Dubai that includes exceptional sporting, entertainment, shopping, and residential communities. The destination will continue to draw and host diverse attractions scheduled to open in the coming years to reinforce Dubai’s position as an international hub for family tourism.
DUBAILAND is ideally located on Emirates Road, providing easy access to all visitors. It is just 25 minutes from Dubai International Airport, 20 minutes from the newly opened Al Maktoum International Airport, and 60 minutes from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE. DUBAILAND has been planned and designed by leading experts across a wide spectrum of disciplines.
