Dubai is in celebration mood today as it joins the rest of the United Arab Emirates in celebrating the country’s national day. The event has however also coincided with the selection of Dubai as the city to host the 2020 world expo and many are making the most of the double celebration.
The Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed al Maktoum, decided to celebrate the two events somewhat differently. He climbed the world tallest building, Burj Khalifa to hoist the UAE flag.
