Here are some of the most popular activities you can plan for your next trip to Dubai.
World's Tallest Building – Burj Khalifa
Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, is one of the must-visit locations in Dubai. The building is located in the city's center and serves as a hub of activity. Simply looking at Burj Khalifa in awe can make your day memorable. But venturing into the building is also worth your time. You can capture perfect day or night shots of the city on your camera from the observation deck or dine at The Sky Lounge.
The Dubai Fountain
At the base of the Burj Khalifa, there is the Dubai Fountain. The fountain displays powerful water jets that shoot streams as high as 150 meters in the air and sway to musical numbers. You can see the mesmerizing fountains in the evening as the displays start at sundown and play every 30 minutes until 11 pm. In addition, there are several restaurants near the fountain where you can dine with your family.
Dubai has a lot to offer you through various activities, but the tranquillity you are looking for is available in the desert. You can go on a desert safari to see the natural views of the Arabian desert. There are also thrilling sports activities like sandboarding and quad biking for adventure lovers. If you participate in an evening safari, you'll be able to catch a sunset while you ride a camel, get a henna tattoo, and watch a belly dancing and fire show!
The Dubai Mall
Located next to the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Mall is one of the world's most prominent high-end shopping destinations. In addition to shopping, Dubai Mall offers a variety of entertainment and leisure activities. There are over 1200 retail stores, two large departmental stores, and hundreds of food courts. Even if you spent the entire trip there, it would be virtually impossible to see it all.
To visit the city's most iconic locations, you must visit the Dubai Marina. It's one of the liveliest tourist attractions in Dubai. As you stroll along the Marina, you can go for a walk or enjoy the views on a dhow cruise. The iconic buildings and waterside lounges will make you want to stay there for hours.
