Dubai is a city that has blown up in the recent years and has piqued the interest of many. The massive development and modern additions have put this city on the map of world-class destinations. The city boasts some of the most spectacular structures and attractions in the world today and some amazing Dubai holiday deals can be found to make your holiday extra special. The top five things to do are listed here, however the list could have gone on and on.
1 Shopping Malls
If you are expecting extreme bargains and unique stores, you might not be entirely impressed. The stores in the malls here will be something similar to that of the stores in New York City. However, going to the malls in Dubai aren’t all about swiping the credit cards and walking around with hands full of bags.
People come to the shopping malls here to experience much more than shopping. The Mall of Emirates is huge and provides a winter wonderland to escape the desert heat. Take yourselves down the man-made ski slopes after your window shopping. You can also pretend you are in Venice, Italy if you make your way to Souk Madinat.
Here you can be transported by boats along the waterways to different shops, restaurants, and hotels. Just remember, shopping malls in Dubai are anything but ordinary, so even if you aren’t looking for new sunglasses, a watch or a new outfit, it’s still worth the visit.
2 Burj Al Arab
Proclaimed to be the world’s first and only seven-star hotel is Burj Al Arab. This is Dubai’s most popular landmark and icon. Feel free to linger outside the massive hotel for some great photo opportunities with this famous building. If you would like to roam around inside you can expect to be amazed by the excellent and unique underwater restaurants, aquariums, glass elevators and Skyview Bar on top.
The hotel is a spectacle for sure and a must see even if it’s only from the outside. If you need somewhere to cool down, Wild Wadi is just down the road. This wet and wild water park will be sure to cool you down.
3 Atlantis and The Palms
The man-made islands called The Palms are a feat in itself. Where else can you find magnificently palm-shaped islands and fabulous resorts placed on them? The most popular resort is the Atlantis which boasts excellent beaches, marine habitats, world-class restaurants, boutique shopping, and so much more. Wandering the beaches and islands in the area are a sure way to have a magical day in paradise.
4 The Burj Khalifa
You noticed it when you landed and you noticed it towering the skies as you wandered the streets, so it’s no wonder why the Burj Khalifa is a must-see while in Dubai.
Holding the record for the world’s tallest building, this massive structure towers over the city at an impressive 2,722 feet high. If you are looking for a birds-eye view of this stunning megalopolis, this is the ultimate place to literally see it all. The observation deck is on the 134th floor.
Coming around sunset would be the best choice so you can catch a glimpse of the city lit up by the sun, then the night lights.
5 Day Trip Desert Adventure
A trip to the desert, a 4×4 adventure tour, Wadi Wurrayah, UAE’s only all natural waterfall, a camel ride, and so much more can be had here. Choose anything that might spark your interest.
Don’t forget to end your night with a fabulous dinner and traditional belly dancing show to add that cherry on top to your fabulous holiday.
