Planning a trip to Dubai can be a rewarding experience if planned correctly. There are several attractions that you will want to take in during your trip.
Dubai is home to the Burj Khalifa which is the tallest building in the world. Visitors can enjoy an exhibit on the history of the building and then partake in the fastest list the world offers. The ride takes only a few seconds to the top of the building so it is really not for the weak at heart. However the view you will be rewarded with are worth it. Tickets can be booked online in advance to save having to stand in line.
After visiting the Burj Khalifa tourists can enjoy an abra ride on the Dubai creek. This is one of the oldest and most beautiful areas that Dubai has to offer. If you go during the evening you will be able to hear the evening call to prayer. Private abra rides can be chartered for 10 pounds an hour. You can also purchase incense and frankincense.
The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding is the perfect place to enjoy breakfast or lunch. This is also a place where you can learn about Muslims. The host will help to answer any questions you may have such as why women wear the abaya. If you time your visit just right you will be able to enjoy listening to the call of prayer as it is being sung.
Dubai parks are also a beautiful and scenic place to visit. Families can be seen enjoying the weather and have fun playing. You can even take items with you to enjoy a barbeque burger or hot dog.
The Ravi is one of the restaurants that has been serving patrons the longest. This restaurant is typically full with diners from all parts of the world. It is a more casual place to dine and offers Pakistani curry. The restaurant has recently been renovated in order to include an area for families to sit and enjoy a family meal or to sit outside and people watch.
The Burj Al Arab happily refers to itself as the “world’s only 7 star” hotel. It also serves to be one of the most iconic of buildings in Dubai. The architecture of the Burj was created to mimic a billowing sail. More people take pictures of the public beach and the hotel. It is always being voted as the world’s most luxurious hotels and therefore a stay in the hotel is more than what the average person can afford. However, you can always visit Dhow and Anchor hotel opposite so you can enjoy a sit on the terrace.
The last must see place that Dubai has to offer is the Ski Dubai Mall of the Emirates. The mall hosts a ski slope. Visitors can hire the equipment and clothes so you won’t have to worry about brining skis. There is café-bar halfway up the slope where you can stop to watch others enjoying themselves.
