The UAE was just a desert not long ago. Or so was it perceived as one. It did not attract business or tourists. Things are not the same anymore. It is now one of the most developed, modern and sophisticated countries of the world with Dubai being its main tourist hub. The thing about Dubai is that it never usually is part of bucket lists but is a favorite among travelers nevertheless. This is mostly because the city is very tourist friendly and offers plenty of fun activities to do. Let’s take a look at some of these activities.
- Burj Khalifa
Burj Khalifa needs little introduction. It has been featured in numerous movies, articles, TV shows and programs. Standing so majestically in Downtown Dubai, the building has many records to its credit. It is not only the tallest man-made structure in the world but also boasts the world’s highest nightclub, the highest observation deck, highest restaurant, highest swimming pool and highest elevator. Viewing Dubai from the observation deck and having dinner so high up is a phenomenal experience.
2. Palm Islands
Together the three gorgeous islands Palm Jumeirah, Deira Island and Palm Jebel Ali are called the Palm Islands. The Palm Jumeirah is the most popular spot for honeymooners. As the name suggests, the island is in the shape of a palm leaf. The scenic island is a great place to enjoy nature and simply relax.
3. The Dubai Mall
You travel to Dubai and leave out visiting the Dubai Mall? Impossible. The Mall has the honor of being the world’s largest mall in terms of area and the most visited mall in the world.
