Set in an incredible 800-hectare development, Dubai International City is a pre-designed complex that will be a world-class hub for international investors, traders and retailers from across the globe. Providing excellent business opportunities, superb tourist attractions and a selection of unique residential options with varied country themes, International City's scale and scope is matched only by its ambition and purpose. Years of feasibility studies resulted in the conceptual formulation of International City, which will play host to more than 60,000 residents. This community will blend in with an equally critical aspect of International City's conception - tourism. Incredible replicas of iconic structures like the Forbidden City are recreated in intricate detail. With Dubai playing host to five million visitors annually, a figure that is expected to double by 2007, International City promises to be an incredible melting-pot of world culture, commerce and lifestyle.
