Celebrate the Eid Al Adha

Previous attractions will also remain including the Garden in the Sky Observation tower and Surreal Water Feature. There will be new attractions for the visitors starting with the Stories of Nations.
Expo City Dubai will have a 10 km bike track, a 5 km running track, and multiple wide outdoor spaces. Restaurants, entertainment, and retail venues will also be part of the new community. Residential and business hubs will also open with the site becoming the largest space in the world to be fully covered by a 5G-enabled network.
