A city with ambitions, Dubai is a mecca for tourists with a stunning appeal that never fails to steal hearts. The city is a perfect amalgamation of the past and ultra-modernization in the entire Middle East. Home to the world’s tallest building, 5-Star hotels, glitzy mega malls, and a great lifestyle, Dubai is beaming as one of the most desirable emirates where something is always brewing.
A city made up of foreign expats, there is always a great level of cultural diversity that is hardly found anywhere else and outstands any other destination in the entire UAE. With all that said we would now give you top reasons why you should travel to Dubai before the year ends.
Modern Art & Design Capital of the Middle East
From the gritty Alserkal Avenue art district to the slick art galleries dotted through the Financial Centre, the art scene in Dubai is pretty diverse. The Dubai Design District has just opened, and when you throw in the array of art and design festivals like Design Days taking place, there’s always something in store for the aesthetically minded.
The Palm Island
Built between 2001 and 2006, the Palm Jumeirah is the largest artificial island in the world. It houses multi-million-dollar mega mansions and hosts 5-star luxury hotels, including the famous Atlantis The Palm.
Enjoy spectacular views from the planet’s tallest building
With a staggering height of 829.8 m., nearly double the height of Empire State building of New York, the Burj Khalifa is one of the most drawing factor that turns in visitors from all over the world. The 163-floor building offers the most spectacular views of the entire city as well as the surrounding parts of the UAE.
Shop till you drop
Home to the biggest mall in the world, many high-end retail stores, and host to the world-famous Dubai Shopping Festival, it is no surprise that visitors from every nook and corner of the world visit Dubai for some retail therapy. While most countries of the world only have sales after Christmas, Dubai hosts a month-long shopping festival with concerts & giveaways where shoppers can win gold and even cars.
Take in the biggest fountain display in the world
Made by the same guys who created Las Vegas’s iconic Bellagio fountain, the Dubai Fountain is a spectacular sight. Illuminated by 6,600 lights and 25 colored projectors, the Dubai Fountain is almost 1,000 ft. long and shoots water up to 500 ft. into the air accompanied by a variety of contemporary, classical, Arabic and world music.
Go camel trekking in the Arabian desert
What better way to experience the desert than a camel ride? There are many half day tours from Dubai which can take you across the desert on a camel convoy before enjoying an evening full of entertainment at a traditional Bedouin desert camp accompanied with BBQ dinner and belly dance performances. You can also enjoy local cultural activities such as falconry, henna, music, bread making and others, all this while you enjoy a great time under the star lit sky in Dubai.
Sun, Sea and the Sand
Another pretty obvious one, but definitely one of the most appealing reason for visitors. With a coastline of 1,000 km and more than 300 days of sunshine in a year, Dubai Tour always makes sure that you are never far away from getting your tan on.
