When it comes to Dubai’s amazing attractions, we’ve all heard about the gorgeous beaches, towering skyscrapers and sprawling shopping malls. But there’s much more to this destination, with plenty of unique and affordable options too. Here are five of our top suggestions to get you started!
Marvel at Dubai Fountain
At the foot of Dubai Mall in the 30-acre Burj Lake, the fountain show is a spectacular dancing display of water jets pumping up to 22,000 gallons of water. Every 30 minutes, the lake comes to life with colourful displays accompanied by Arabic and world music. For the ultimate experience, ride a water taxi to get up close or admire the views from the boardwalk.
Go on a Sunset Safari
No trip to Dubai is complete without experiencing a Sunset Safari. This is the perfect excuse to leave the skyscrapers behind and take an afternoon away from the buzz of the big city for a ride with the camels around Dubai’s largest sand dunes. You’ll be able to finish the day off with a BBQ and stunning sunset views.
Climb the Burj Khalifa
No visit to Dubai is complete without a visit to the Burj Khalifa. Travel up in a high speed elevator until you reach the top to find the most breathtaking views of Dubai. If you’re brave enough, walk around the floor-to-ceiling glass walls inside the tallest building on earth, and enjoy a 360-degree view of the city, desert and ocean.
Discover the Atlantis Aquaventure Park
Choose a one or two day pass at Atlantis Aquaventure Park and the Lost Chambers Aquarium. Get your heart pounding on water slides and winding rivers, then explore an enchanting underwater world where you’ll encounter sharks, stingrays and piranhas. You can even swim with Dolphins while you’re there too.
See Dubai’s No. 1 stage show
La Perle by Dragone is the region’s first permanent show, located in the heart of Dubai at Al Habtoor City. With a fusion of immersive artistic performances, imagery and technology, La Perle is influenced by Dubai’s rich culture and apsirational future. Featuring an ‘aqua-stage’ filled with 2.5 million litres of water, expect awe-inspiring stunts and special effects that will leave you speechless.
