Dubai has changed rapidly with its towering skyscrapers, adventure sports and its extravagant but classy aesthetics. Dubai Tourism makes a special effort to make every traveller’s visit extraordinary. So, before you head to Dubai, here are stand out attractions which we feel you need to visit.
Dubai’s Unique Skyline and Islands
Initially constructed to be Eighth Wonder of the World, the Burj Khalifa catches your attention as the tallest tower amongst the Dubai Skyline. At the Burj Khalifa, you can enjoy a panoramic view of Dubai from the Observation Desk. Also, you can dine at Michelin chef world class restaurants and shop for the finest in clothes and accessories under one roof.
Standing tall at 590 feet on another man-made island off the coast, it is Burj Al Arab, the world’s tallest hotel. The Al Muntaha restaurant will take your breath away with its massive aquarium which is roughly the size of a two-storied apartment. Designed by Tom Wright and Carlos Ott, the Burj was constructed in the shape of a ship’s sail.
The Palm Jumeirah was developed in the form of artificial archipelagos in the Arabian Gulf waters. These islands were completed in 2006 as reclaimed land. Palm Jumeirah is known for its posh residential address and is a popular tourist destination. Perhaps the most well-known among these man-made archipelagos islands is ‘The World.’ The islands are in the form of a world map and are located 4 kilometres of the coast of Dubai and home to several celebrities.
For the Car Enthusiast
If you have a passion for fast cars, then you should head to the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi to experience supercars up close and personal. The entire area of Ferrari World is the size of 7 football fields and houses over 16,000 Ferraris. With a footfall of nearly 2 lakh visitors every year, they can be entertained with Ferrari-themed roller coasters, museums and projection shows. At The Desert, you can ride sand dunes on 4X4 hired cars and drive alongside white sands and be away from the buzzing city life.
Dubai will etch fond memories of your stay at a futuristic and ever expanding city. A simple Tourist Visa will get you on the next plane to Dubai based on your ticket bookings and travel preferences. Whether it’s music, dance, adventure sport or fine dining, Dubai always has something special to offer for you.
