Over the last few years, Hatta has seen some significant developments, making its heritage, history and attractions accessible for visitors and tourists. These developmental changes have been sanctioned by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai which come under The 20-year Hatta Master Development Plan and include the creation of a new lake and transport systems for the mountain slopes. Al Ketbi added, “Through unparalleled creative and artistic storytelling, the show will also shed light on the achievements of today and offer a unique glimpse into the promising future that awaits everyone who calls the UAE home.”
