Top Places in Dubai that you must Visit before you die

Top Places in Dubai that you must visit before you die

Dubai is a city in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks. There are some top places in Dubai that you must visit before you die.

Just incase you have visited Dubai before now and you didn’t check out these places, then you have to go back. I have exciting places that would blow your mind.

Without wasting anymore of your time, let’s see what I’ve got;

1. THE DUBAI MALL:

The Dubai mall

Right next to the Burj Khalifa is The Dubai Mall. To call the sprawling development merely a shopping mall is doing it a disservice. Even an entire day spent here isn’t enough to see it all. Along with its 1,200-plus shops and 150 restaurants, the venue is home to an indoor theme park, an ice rink, a huge indoor waterfall, a choreographed outdoor fountain and the giant Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.

2. THE DUBAI FOUNTAIN:

The Dubai fountain

The Dubai Fountain, located at the base of the iconic Burj Khalifa and just outside the doors of the famous The Dubai Mall, features the world’s largest choreographed fountain system. This popular dancing water show jets water streams as high as 150 metres in the air. Each colourful, illuminated jet sways in time to various musical numbers from around the world, producing what has become the one of the most popular shows in Dubai. Two showings occur in the afternoon (1pm and 1:30pm), except on Fridays (1:30pm to 2pm) and evening displays begin at sundown and take place every 30 minutes until the final song plays at 11pm.

3. THE DUBAI DESERT:

THE DUBAI DESERT

Less than 20 minutes driving from the modernist streets of Downtown Dubai, you can experience the marvels of the Arabian desert, the original tourist attraction of Dubai. Take a desert safari Dubai-style with off-roading, quad biking and sandboarding followed by traditional barbecues, henna and camel rides. Or just drive out and experience the wonder of the desert on an adventure of your own. You can see Bedouin life first-hand at the Al Marmoom Bedouin Experience by Platinum Heritage.

This cultural tour will take you on the journey followed by the nomadic desert dwellers and give you unique insights into their way of living. Can’t get enough in a day? Treat yourself to an unforgettable night amid the dunes at the Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa or Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa.

4. BURJ KHALIFA:

BURJ KHALIFA

Standing 828 metres high, the Burj Khalifa is hard to miss. The world’s tallest tower naturally dominates the Dubai skyline, but the true majesty of the building is best appreciated up close or, even better, from inside. On a clear day, the view from the observation deck on level 124 is absolutely stunning, topped only by the view from the luxurious At The Top Sky Lounge on the 148th floor. And for those who would like to linger awhile, enjoy a meal at At.mosphere on level 122 or head to The Lounge, Burj Khalifa that covers levels 152, 153 and 154, making it the tallest lounge on the planet.Standing 828 metres high, the Burj Khalifa is hard to miss.

5. PALM JUMEIRAH:

PALM JUMEIRAH

A manmade island in the shape of a palm tree – there’s a reason why locals say ‘only in Dubai.’ Palm Jumeirah is one of the largest artificial islands in the world and a triumph of human ingenuity. Locals and tourists alike enjoy the Palm’s vast array of high-end hotels, including the Waldorf Astoria, Fairmont, One&Only, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray and, perhaps most notably, the iconic Atlantis, The Palm. And with a monorail running down the ‘trunk’ that connects to the mainland’s tram system, getting there couldn’t be easier.

6. THE DUBAI MARINA:

THE DUBAI MARINA

Look into the future at the world’s largest manmade marina, Dubai Marina. Marvel at iconic buildings as you stroll along Marina Walk or see the sights from the water on a traditional dhow cruise. This New Dubai hotspot is on every visitor’s holiday itinerary for a reason, and with an array of waterside restaurants to choose from, as well as irresistible retail therapy at Dubai Marina Mall, it’s easy to while away an afternoon here. Feeling brave? Take on the XLine, the world’s longest urban zipline.
