Dubailand is a massive residential development and a tourist hotspot. Dubailand sprawls across 3 million sq. ft., divided into several districts including Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club, Dubailand Oasis, Layan, Majan, FalconCity of Wonders, Living Legends, Villanova, Rukan, Tiger Woods, and Al Waha, to name a few. At Dubailand, the developments are in ongoing progress for many other multi-billion projects such as DAMAC Hills.
The Dubailand project was launched by Tatweer but later on, it was taken over by Dubai Properties Group. Since then it has been divided into individual projects, few of which are not even considered under Dubailand and hence are popular by their names. A few of these projects which were supposed to be part of the original plan include Dubai Sports City, Dubai Motor City, Mudon, and Arabian Ranches. This is one of the freehold districts.
It won’t be wrong to say that Dubailand is a city within Dubai, home to the themed adventure park, polo club, hotels, and a wide range of accommodation plans.
