Lying between the warm, blue waters of the Gulf and the red sands of the Arabian Desert, Dubai offers year-round sunshine, fine beaches and incredible shopping in its lively markets and air conditioned malls.
Out and About
Jumeirah Beach is Dubai’s answer to Miami, with its long stretches of pristine sand, studded with some of the world’s top hotels. From here downtown Dubai is easily recognisable with its piercing skyscrapers, most noticeably Burj Khalifa - the world’s tallest building.
Dubai is not all 21st century glitz and glam and, for a taste of traditional Arabia, head for the neighbourhoods of Bur Dubai and Deira, with their labyrinth of alleys, souqs and mosques seperated by the bustling Dubai creek, where wooden Dhows ply their trade.
The people of Dubai are also proud of their Bedouin history and a 4WD desert safari is a great way to understand life here as it would have been centuries ago.
Dubai's top attractions include:
- Palm Jumeirah and The World - sand islands literally built out of the sea - now home to the rich and famous.
- Colourful 'souq' markets, including the famous Gold and Spice Souqs
- Burj Khalifa observation deck - awe inspiring views from the 124th floor of the world’s tallest building.
- Over 70 shopping malls with household names and designer goods.
- Dhow cruises on the Dubai Creek.
- Dubai Museum and galleries.
- Desert safaris - ride the dunes in a 4WD and finish with a Bedouin feast.
- Wild Wadi water park with its 33m high slide!‘Ski in the Desert’ at Mall of Emirates.
- Dubai Aquarium.
- Bastakia Quarter - the well preserved and restored old town.
