This is where every building reaches for the skies; every traveler finds a place to dock and where the very old meets the ultra-modern. In Dubai, everything bigger is better. Dubai loves to think of challenges and figures out ways to surpass them. This city never fails to impress.
When it comes to superlatives, Dubai tourism isn’t only famous for its great culture, food, beaches, entertainment, and shopping, but it also holds the most world records in the region — over 150 including the world’s tallest building, biggest mall, and largest fireworks display.
Take a look at the top 5 places to visit during your holiday in Dubai.
Experience luxury at its best with Burj Al Arab
The iconic Burj Al Arab is the most luxurious accommodations in the world, built on a man-made island with an underwater aquarium restaurant, gold leaf interiors & more. The island was built to realize British architect Tom Wright’s vision of the hotel rising from the water like a sailboat. The Burj’s iconic curved design resembles the sail of the dhow, an Arabian vessel, a tribute to Dubai’s heritage as a seafaring people.
Marvel at the magnificent Burj Khalifa
Three times the size of the Eiffel Tower, the iconic and imposing Burj Khalifa is the tallest manmade and free-standing structure in the world. This is where science meets art. This famous tourist spot of Dubai houses the highest mosque, highest restaurant & lounge and the highest outdoor observation deck in the world. The elevator that takes visitors from the lower ground level of The Dubai Mall to the first observation deck of the Burj on the 124th floor in 65 seconds, is the fastest in the world.
Shop till you Drop at the Dubai Mall
The big daddy of all the shopping centers, Dubai Mall is the largest shopping mall in the world. Home to some of the world’s most innovative designers, discerning shoppers & stylish locals, from hot brands to styling events all under 1 roof, this mall emphasizes Dubai’s standing as a world shopping capital. Complete with 1,200 retail and 200 food outlets, you can find an enormous ice rink, a theme park, an aquarium and the official entry to the Burj Khalifa’s 124th-floor viewing deck.
Witness the picturesque Dubai fountain
Dubai Fountain set on the 30acre manmade Burj Khalifa Lake is the World’s largest choreographed fountains system. This gigantic installation is 902 feet long and shoots water up to 500 feet. The vertical streams of water shoot sky high and swerve back and forth to the tune of some classical to contemporary Arabic and world music, making this spectacle really fun to watch.
Fly over the Palm Jumeirah
Visit the world’s largest man-made island, created in the shape of a palm tree topped by a crescent. Palm Jumeirah consists of a tree trunk, a crown with 16 fronds and a surrounding crescent island that forms an 11km long breakwater. The best way to see this amazing creation is from the sky. Each crescent of the palm tree houses a vast number of commercial, residential and entertainment properties, including several uber-luxury resorts. The Atlantis, a 5-star aqua themed resort hotel which hosts the famous aqua adventure amusement park is one of the most famed attractions at Palm Jumeirah.
