Dubai is a thriving metropolis with world-class attractions on its doorsteps. It has quickly become one of the must-see locations for tourists. Dubai really knows how to make headlines with its only 7-Star hotel in the globe, the world’s tallest tower, manmade islands, underwater hotels and buildings that spin like a Weeble. From cultural excursions to family fun days, Dubai has a wealth of amazing attractions just waiting to be discovered. Here are the top 7 things to do in Dubai.
- The Burj Khalifa
The tallest structure on the planet is impossible to miss from the moment you arrive in Dubai. The opportunity to view the city from the observation deck on the 134th floor is not to be missed. Day or night the view is truly spectacular. By the way, can you spot Tom Cruise?
- The Dubai Mall
The Dubai Mall has to be seen to be believed. It is simply huge, with something for everyone inside. The shopping and eating are almost a side attraction. With a 22-screen cinema; an indoor theme park, called Sega World; a world for children, called Kidzania; a giant Aquarium with an underwater zoo; and a full-sized ice rink, you are truly in for a treat.
- Skiing at the Mall of the Emirates
Telling your friends that you went skiing in the desert is quite a boast. Ski Dubai inside the mall of the Emirates offers a genuinely great ski experience with the longest run at 1,300 feet.
Atlantis’ waterpark is known as ‘Aquaventure,’ and features high-tech waterslides built to look like ancient monuments. The Leap of Faith is not for the weak-hearted, for it is filled with deadly sharks and elevated over 27 meters high.
- Jumeirah Mosque
This twin-spired, much-photographed landmark is the biggest in town and the only one that non-Muslims are allowed to enter. It aims at promoting cultural understanding and providing an insight into the Islamic religion.
- Desert Dinner Date
The mysterious desert is the ideal venue for a magical and memorable evening. Leaving behind the hustle and bustle of the city, you will find yourself leading a thrilling journey – over the sand dunes, and resting deep into the heart of the desert. A feast under the stars is awaiting you and your Habibi (Love).
- Underwater Hotel
Atlantis’ Lost Chambers suites provide views from both the bedroom and the bathroom windows into a lagoon filled with 65,000 marine animals. So you can relax on your bed and watch giant manta rays float slowly by.
