Dubai’s world-famous Palm Jumeirah island has been named a ‘must-see architectural wonder’ by leading travel website Expedia.

Palm Jumeirah, master developer Nakheel’s flagship project, is among the world's top places that travellers should visit according to Expedia’s list of essential sights, which was compiled in collaboration with architecture news website 'Arch Daily'.

The website describes Nakheel’s manmade islands as ‘combining both structural and artistic genius with their elaborate palm tree shape’.

“Palm Jumeirah is living proof of Dubai’s growth, energy and ambition, and this accolade is a great honour for the island, Dubai and Nakheel,” a Nakheel spokesman said.

“Palm Jumeirah has long been recognised as a landmark engineering achievement that helped to put Dubai on the world map. This endorsement further highlights how The Palm is not only a vibrant community and attraction for people living in Dubai, but a magnet for the millions of tourists who visit the emirate each year, too.”

Palm Jumeirah is home thousands of residents and nine world-class resorts, with more on the way.  Nakheel is enhancing the island’s mix of attractions with a diverse new range of projects including Nakheel Mall, The Palm Tower, The Pointe and The Boardwalk.
