What to do in Dubai
Dubai is one of seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates. It calls itself one of the more modern and progressive cities in the Middle East, but it also keeps its best traditions. From modern sites, tasty food, and many other destinations, Dubai welcomes travellers from all over the world.
Dubai is world-famous for its spectacular architecture. Even if you’ve seen pictures online of it online or in famous movies, the Burj Khalifa will still leave you in awe.
Another popular site in Dubai is the Burj al-Arab, which is currently the world’s tallest hotel. The Dubai Aquarium is also a tourist favourite because it’s home to over 100 species of sea creatures.
Bring your camera to the city’s other can’t-miss destinations like the Dubai Fountains, Wild Wadi Water Park, and Aquaventure Waterpark.
Have a ripper time watching the camel races during winter. Dare yourself to go dune bashing or driving through the desert safari. Explore the man-made Palm Islands and coastal skyscrapers by yacht charter. And ride a hot air balloon over Dubai and its landscapes in the morning or during sunset.
When in Dubai, you must spend your Dirham for shopping. There’s the Dubai Mall that boasts of 1200 stores, and Mall of the Emirates with 560 stores. Don’t forget to check out Global Village, Deira Gold Souk, and Al Fahidi Street.
