When going on vacation to the United Arab Emirates, many people think about where and how to spend their vacation. This article presents to your attention the top ways to spend time in Dubai, one of the most luxurious cities in the United Arab Emirates.
The height of the Burj Khalifa skyscraper is truly impressive. It is 828 meters. It is also the tallest building in the world. The tower is the most important attraction of the entire United Arab Emirates. A tourist who is just approaching the building is already breathtaking.
And if you go up to the highest observation deck, which, remarkably, is located on the 124th floor, you will be treated to a magnificent view of the entire city of Dubai. If you are a culinary enthusiast, then you should visit At The Top Sky Lounge and the European restaurant At.mosphere in Burj Khalifa.
Near the same world-famous Burj Khalifa building there is an equally famous singing fountain. Dubai has long been recognized for its commitment to excellence in everything it offers. This principle extends to the city’s fountain, which holds the distinction of being the largest in the world. Every evening, for half an hour, powerful jets of water “dance” with the music, flying up to a height of more than 150 meters.
In addition, the musical compositions are never repeated, and every day a new song is played and a new fountain dance is performed. At 23:00 the last song sounds. In order to contemplate the dance of the fountain, you can sit in one of the restaurants of the Dubai Mall or the Souk Al Bahar complex, which are located very close to the fountain.
This artificial island can be called a brilliant idea by engineers. This is one of the largest artificial islands in the world. The island is home to the best hotels and resorts in the world, such as Waldorf Astoria, Fairmont, One&Only, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, and the famous Atlantis The Palm. In order to get to this island, you do not need to make any special efforts, since a monorail runs along the palm islands, which is connected to the Dubai tram line.
The city of Dubai is not just about pure modernity. There are historical and centuries-old cultural buildings, settlements, and much more. For example, a very long time ago, the Bani Yas tribe settled on the coast of Dubai Creek, which gave rise to the indigenous population of Dubai. Since ancient times, this bay has played a significant role in Dubai’s economy as it was a prime location for pearl diving and fishing.
Today, this place is the cultural and historical heritage of the entire emirate. The historical Dubai Museum is also worth a visit, as well as the eastern bases of gold, spices, and excellent fabrics. By visiting the museum, you can immerse yourself in the past and feel how the people of Dubai lived before.
This place is historical in the literal and figurative sense. Windmills and labyrinths of narrow streets among mud houses that line Dubai Creek carry the history of past centuries. The Sheikh Mohammed Center for Cultural Understanding is located on the territory, which offers everyone courses in the study of the Arabic language, tours, and excursions around the mosque, which will allow you to look at the life and customs of the people who lived here previously.
A twenty-minute drive from the city of Dubai is the Rub al-Khali desert, where you can have an exciting and breathtaking safari on off-road vehicles, ride a quad bike and ride a sandboard. If you like a comfortable holiday, then you should book a tour called Heritage Dinner Safari from Platinum Heritage. The price of the tour includes a safari on vintage SUVs and a lot of entertainment, such as:
Alternatively, take your own desert adventure by booking a room at Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa or Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa.
The largest shopping center in the world called Dubai Mall is located near the Burj Khalifa tower. Inside the shopping center, there are more than 1,200 shops, two huge department stores, as well as a large number of restaurants and cafes. The Dubai Mall covers more than 1 million square meters, in other words, the size of 200 football fields.
If you are an adrenaline junkie, then this sport is created just for you. Take a tandem jump with a professional Skydive Dubai instructor. You will have to book your seat well in advance of your flight, but the experience is worth it – you can see the Palm Jumeirah island or the desert dunes from a 4-kilometer height. After the jump, you will have a high-quality video recording of the flight to relive these incredible moments.
