Every evening in the center of Dubai the famous Fountains put on a magical musical show every half hour. These fountains will make you forget that you are in a desert nation. The fountain shows offers awesome evening entertainment and can be observed best from street level, especially one of the surrounding nearby restaurants. The fountains can also be seen from the nearby Dubai Mall.
The Dubai Mall is probably the world’s most famous. Not only does the mall offer shopping, there are also activities for everyone from children to adults – including a movie theatre, an ice rink, a massive food court, and even an aquarium. The Dubai Mall is home to almost 1,200 stores and covers an area the size of 50 football fields. Needless to say, you can find quite literally everything at this mall. The mall is also a welcome relief from the heat of the Dubai throughout the year.
Dubai is an oasis within a desert and it is definitely worth exploring that outside desert. There are many different ways to explore including luxury jeep tours, camel rides and sand buggies. Expect to see a lot of sand and dress in layers as it can get cooler in the evening. If you’re looking to cool off after a desert tour, there is always the Marina Beach, which offers a beautiful view and crystal clear water.
For the ultimate view of Dubai, take a tour of the incredible United Arab Emirates landmark, the Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world, standing at 2,716.5 feet tall. Not only is the Burj Khalifa the world’s tallest building, it is also the worlds’ tallest free-standing structure and the world’s tallest structure, containing the worlds’ tallest elevator, rising the more than 160 stories to the top. Expect a breath-taking view from the top of the sea and the sand and the surrounding city. It’s also extra special to ascend the building a sunset for an even further enhanced experience.
Dubai is also home to some more traditional Middle Eastern attractions including the Jumeirah Mosque, the Gurunanak Darbar Sikh Temple, the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the Bastakia Quarter, and the Meena Bazaar. These cultural sites provide a wonderful balance with all of the man-made magnificence of Dubai.
