Dubai's 7 Must-Go-To Places
Dubai is a dynamic city, ever changing and developing. That is why visiting can be overwhelming at times – there’s just a lot of things that you can do! Planning your itinerary can get a little disorienting, so we have chosen seven places for you and your love ones to explore and experience Dubai at its finest.
The country is a desert, so it would be fitting to enjoy its sandy customs. We recommend visiting the desert with a desert safari trip. Go dune bashing, sand boarding, hop on a camel, have your hands painted with henna and enjoy some belly dancing over local cuisine and a camp fire.
A trip to the observation decks of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building of the world, is worth every penny. Step into levels 124, 125 and 148 to wander through Dubai’s famous landmarks with a unique interactive experience.
Continue your audacious venture at the Emirates’ first indoor ski resort, Ski Dubai, in one of the city’s beautiful malls, Mall of the Emirates. They have a ski school so you could ski down the snow mountain, feel the adrenaline rush with snowboarding and zip line, and meet their resident royalties, the Gentoo and King penguins.
Move on to the city’s historic Deira or Old Dubai and get to know Dubai’s history through its museums, stroll on its vintage streets and delight in the souqs that sells wares, spices, perfumes and even gold, unwind at their local cafes.
Then you can marvel at Dubai’s iconic Burj Al Arab. It resembles the sail of the ship, a tribute to the seafaring tradition of the country’s locals. Wander along its coastline and you’ll soon arrive at the world’s largest man-made archipelago, The Palm Jumeirah.
It takes the shape of a palm with a surrounding crescent where the latter and the trunk’s beachfront is home to world-class hotels, delectably fancy restaurants and a massively luxurious mall. And finally, cap off your tour at Dubai Marina for some continental cuisine and shisha or rent a yacht and be in wondering awe seeing the sparkle of the marina skyscrapers.
All of these are just a few of what Dubai can offer. Being a city that continuously prospers, count on Dubai to always amaze the tourist in you.
