Dubai to transform the countryside into brand-new tourist hubs


More of Dubai’s picturesque countryside is destined for significant new construction behind Hatta’s growing shift.

With tourist destinations, more employment, and residential constructions, the Dubai suburbs of Al Marmoom, Al Habbab, Al Lisaila, and Al Faqa are prepared for considerable expansion and improved amenities. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, has made an announcement.

The Al Marmoom Reserve is currently located in Al Marmoom.

In the statement, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid stated, “The goal is to generate new economic prospects for residents of these localities.”

Three new districts will be built in Dubai: Al Khawaneej, Al Barsha, and Al Mizhar.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid continued, “Providing a great quality of life for our inhabitants is a priority.”

The council passed a series of resolutions that will put those ideas into action.

More plans are in the works in Hatta, with Sheikh Mohammed unveiling six more projects in August of last year.

A 5.4-kilometer chairlift, a sustainable waterfalls project, a hotel, and hiking routes to Dubai’s highest peak, Jebel Umm Al Nisour, at 1,300 meters, are among the projects.

For the hydroelectric power station, the cable car route, known as a Telefrik in European locations, will traverse over the Hatta Dam Lake and the Upper Dam Lake.

The cable car departure station will be built on an elevated platform over the Hatta Dam.

The Hatta Sustainable Waterfalls project will build a natural-looking waterfall using the slope of the higher dam. The water will be recycled by collecting it at the stream’s end and pumping it back to the dam’s top.

In addition, residents of Hatta are now permitted to construct 200 holiday homes in order to promote domestic tourism in the city.
