Time is a tricky thing and over the years one can actually see the effects of time. Now these could be positive or negative changes and with the speed at which our world has been growing and developing in the past few decades, some places have changed big time. Here are seven popular cities that have undergone tremendous transformation!

DUBAI, THEN!

It was all but a barren desert. In the last few decades, Dubai has changed from being a mass of empty land that was termed "hopeless" to one of the most exquisite, luxury paradise in the world. Is this a turn of fate or what? UAE literally milked its resources, or should we say oiled!



DUBAI, NOW!

Skyscrapers, some of the best malls, cars, luxury living facilities etc is what Dubai is all about today. This is a city that inspires and motivates you to dream!

PARIS, THEN!

Old world charm - Black buggies, horse-carts, men in trenchcoats, trees lining the streets, no partition, no streetlights, nothing fancy - just good old school!



PARIS, NOW!

The trees are yet the same and so are most of the buildings, albeit some modifications and storey raises. Ofcourse today there are street lights and zebra crossings and more discipline to traffic!

SINGAPORE, THEN!

Singapore today is all about opportunities, aspirations and growth. Back then, more than a century ago, this place was like an old, serene, town by the sea.



SINGAPORE, NOW!

See? Would you believe it if we told you these massive, shiny structures didn't even exist 2 decades ago? Well you'd be surprised to know how many came up in the last decade!!!

MOSCOW, THEN!

It was empty, it was simple and it was aspiring. Imagine if you got a chance to see the old Moscow from the 1800's. It looks so quaint and humble right? Well, more than a century later, a lot has changed!

MOSCOW, NOW!

Chique and glamorous are the words that come to mind when we look at Russia's capital city, Moscow today!

BERLIN, THEN!

Post war Germany was hardly the place to be - vanquished, tired and struggling. People and their homes alike were in pain.

BERLIN, NOW!

Over the decades a lot has changed - in thoughts, in actions and reactions. Germany has evolved for good and Berlin today looks like a land of wonders!

LONDON, THEN!

Whenever we speak of dreamy cities, London tops the charts. Its old world charm has not just inspired writers, but also made romantics of those not interested in the same.

LONDON, NOW!

If you look closely, not a lot has technically changed. It has just gotten finer. Safe to say London is like a finely aged wine, no?

NEW YORK, THEN!

New York has always been the forerunner of change. So even in 1922, the city was quite promising in terms of infrastructure, buildings etc.

NEW YORK, NOW!

The city now is ofcourse way more larger than back then. Skyscrappers, buildings and bridges yet hold that old time charm at the same time, the city looks like a nicer, polished, finer self of the 1922 New York!
