Dubai Crown Prince’s Instagram video goes viral with over 200,000 views
Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan has posted a stunning hyperlapse video of the newly opened Dubai Water Canal on his Instagram account.
The new $735 million waterway was officially launched on Wednesday last week.
The 12km-long waterway links Dubai Creek to the Arabian Gulf, through the Business Bay and the Dubai Water Canals.
It will eventually have nine marine transit stations along the route, and officials have said the Dubai Water Canal is expected to top one million riders per annum by 2020, and the number of riders is set jump further to four million riders by 2030.
The project also includes six kilometres of walkway, a three-kilometre-long jogging track and 12 kilometres of cycling tracks.
