Dubai has beaches, desert safaris, adventures and activities. We believe that Dubai is definitely a city built for the future of tourism. It is at the forefront with seven-star hotels and other luxury hotels next to super malls, where families can do everything they want during their holidays without leaving the resort. Whenever we have the opportunity to go somewhere high, we take advantage of it and you can't stop climbing the tallest building in the world to enjoy a view of the city.
The Burj Khalifa is at the top of all Dubai's attractions. It is located in the heart of the city with beautiful views. Take up 160 floors in the high-speed elevator to enjoy stunning views of Dubai. However, be careful, it's full of people and once you've had a look at the city, there's not much else to do up there.
It's that famous building that Tom Cruise climbed during Mission Impossible and, while you're standing in front of the observation deck, you gain a lot of respect for that man. That takes a lot of courage. While the experience isn't as good as other high-rise attractions we've toured around the world, you can't visit Dubai without taking the elevator. Get your skip-the-line tickets to the 124th, 125th and 148th floors of the Burj Khalifa.
Quickly pass security lines for optimal synchronization. This tour offers easy cancellation within 24 hours of departure. The Burj Khalifa doesn't have the surprise factor of Toronto's CN Tower or even the glass floor of the Calgary Tower, but if there's anything to do in Dubai it's mark the wish list of climbing the tallest building in the world. I know we weren't thrilled with malls in our opening paragraph, but it's a spectacle to see them.
In fact, shopping malls are undoubtedly the top Dubai attractions to add to your list. The Dubai Mall is the largest mall in the world, with much more than just clothing stores and boutiques. If you go to the Mall of the Emirates, you can go snowboarding or skiing at Ski Dubai, watch a movie or go shopping. There are plenty of malls in Dubai and many hotels offer free transportation to visit them, where you can freely spend your hard-earned money.
One of the best things we saw before going to Dubai was Ski Dubai, an indoor ski resort. Coming from Canada, it's totally new to be able to ski indoors. Do you want to spend your days in luxurious pools and explore first-class aquariums while spending your nights in some of the trendiest clubs and lounges on the planet? If so, have you thought about trying some unique experiences in Dubai? Not only is Dubai one of the fastest-growing cities on the planet, but it has also become a trendy tourist destination. We've been wanting to visit Dubai for years, and every year it's ranked higher on our family travel list.
With giant skyscrapers surrounded by the dazzling white sands of the Arabian Desert, Dubai is as unique as it is exotic and high on our list of places you have to see for yourself. No, I'm not talking about sand skiing, although you can also do it in Dubai. Ski Dubai, in the huge Mall of the Emirates shopping center, has built a 22,500 square meter indoor ski area with ski lifts and tubing tracks. Like Canadians who live next to one of Canada's best ski hills (Big White), indoor skiing is a strange concept.
We've always associated skiing with big blue skies and imposing mountains, but we'd also love to try indoor skiing. If you've had enough of the scorching sun, you can cool off in the Chillout Lounge, which is built entirely of ice and has an ambient temperature of -6 °C (42 °F). As Dubai summers reach +42 °C (106 °F), the temperature difference of 36 °C (64 °F) can be a big shock to the system. Don't worry, they give you warm clothes to put on and serve hot soup, sandwiches, a variety of desserts and delicious non-alcoholic cocktails.
The problem with Dubai is that it's mostly desert. That said, there are plenty of ways to stay cool in the water. Do you need to relax after a long day of visiting Dubai's sights? Relax at one of the many beauty spas found in Dubai that offer massages with lava shells or facials with 24-carat gold leaf. Yes, a facial treatment with real gold.
Is old, running water no longer enough? Try a goat's milk bath in one of the special hot tubs at the famous Talisse Ottoman Spa. Not only will it make your skin more beautiful than ever, but you'll be as fresh as Cleopatra was when she started taking milk baths a few thousand years ago. Next time, I suggest a good dose of adventure and good hand-eye coordination. Even Micki, who will try just about anything once, has some reservations when it comes to trying the next activity.
If you're a fan of waterports and you love extremes, you can combine the two and try flyboarding over the Arabian Gulf while you're in Dubai. If flying high above the water on a board connected to a boat by a long hose fills you with excitement, then consider yourself excited. If flyboarding isn't enough for you, you can also try indoor skydiving. iFLY Dubai hosts the world's first double vertical wind tunnel.
Do heights scare you? Don't worry, most of the time you'll only be a few meters above the ground, however, with a little more adrenaline you can go much higher. Dubai likes to do things exaggerated. It's one of the reasons why we thought it would be a fantastic city to visit, and soon. Fulfill your lifelong dream of driving a Formula 1 car while driving at full speed around other supercars with the professionals at Dream Racing.
Not only will you be driving a car that is probably worth more than your house, but you'll also be driving faster than you ever imagined possible. The dessert is an ice cream made with vanilla ice cream from Madagascar, saffron from Iran, rare black truffles from Italy and flakes and 23-carat gold dust. The black diamond may be a golden delicacy that few can taste, but that doesn't stop people from taking a look at other heavenly delights that can be found in this modern ice cream shop. Thanks to the desert that Dubai calls home, it's no surprise that camels played a role in Dubai's rise to fame.
Whether you're watching a camel race with robot riders or attending an exciting camel polo match in Dubai, your love for camels goes beyond your love for sports. Luckily for you, you can also ride your own. And I guarantee that riding one is a memorable way to spend a day. With its taste for opulence and the fact that there's sunshine almost every day of the year, it's no surprise that Dubai is home to some of the most beautiful pools in the world.
Try swimming in a pool surrounded by nothing more than sand dunes as far as the eye can see, or in the shade of the largest building in the world. You can also swim on soaring terraces or lounge in luxurious amenities just a stone's throw from the sea. Visiting the world's largest natural flower garden at Dubai Miracle Garden is a must-see for any flower lover. This sprawling, ever-changing flower garden, with giant buildings covered in flowers, as well as fields with fascinating floral motifs, can make you think you're Alice in Wonderland instead of a scorching desert.
Are you feeling a little overwhelmed by all the things there is to do in Dubai? Well, here's an extra one to help you get in the right state of mind. The Dubai Lighting Center is the city's main holistic center. From yoga to feng shui, they offer classes on just about everything to keep you focused, as well as counseling and therapy classes. From going on an off-road safari in the desert to sailing in the Arabian Sea, there's plenty to do both inside and outside the city.
With hundreds of daily flights to and from Dubai, what are you waiting for? It's also time to add Dubai to your travel list. It was very pleasant to read. After reading this, it seems like there are some wonderful places to visit, I took a quick look at your blog and I already love it. It looks like you've been spending time in many of the places listed in this post.
So in Dubai, I would choose camping in the desert. It would be fun to rest under the stars, surrounded by golden sand everywhere. I wonder what it could be like on a full moon night to determine the layers of dunes. I missed one opportunity in particular in Wadi Rum, in Jordan.
Off-roading is another adventure worth exploring on your trip to Dubai. It really is adventurous and also the heart goes up and down because the vehicle goes up and down. Dubai is a very pleasant place to stay and is famous for its wonderful tourist attractions. The best trip is a Dubai sightseeing tour and a Dubai desert safari.
We had a great time a couple of years ago. Dubai is a great place to be. I visit there during the holidays, as my father works there. And every time there will be something new to see and explore.
The most memorable one for me would be Ski Dubai, a snow park in Dubai. There are lots of activities such as skiing, snowboarding, zip lining and more. It's a wonder to see a cold environment set up in a desert, despite having been created artificially. It was my first experience with snow and it was wonderful.
You've wonderfully mentioned some amazing places and attractions to visit. Dubai is on my list of upcoming travel destinations, so this post is pretty impressive. Wow, Dubai is really great, I'll be traveling to this amazing city in winter. I'm going to visit Dubai next month on my honeymoon trip, so I was looking for a blog where I could learn about the best things to do in Dubai.
Thank you for your recommendations. It's different from the other lists of things to do in Dubai that I've seen and I'm glad you included iFLY Dubai. I recently found out about it and now it's on my Dubai bucket list. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
