With its iconic architecture, unique environment and tapestry of rich heritage, there are plenty of places to visit while you’re in Dubai. From a boat trip around the World, to guided tours of grand mosques, you’ll be able to soak up sun and culture in equal amounts.
Visit the landmarks that make Dubai world famous: Burj Khalifa, and the city’s indoor ski-slope, or float down the Creek, the stretch of water that Dubai grew from. The city itself has enough to keep you entertained for weeks: from cavernous shopping centres, to theatres, bars and restaurants. You’ll never want to leave.
Take a trip back in time, and haggle your way around Arabian souks, seeing what bargains you can find. Swap land for water, and travel by a Bedouin dhow, experiencing the mode of transport favoured by Dubai’s ancestors. Mosques and museums lie in wait, where you can unravel the secrets of the Emirate’s early days.
As well as Dubai’s heritage and its visionary city, there are stunning beaches to tour, as well as luxuriously warm seas to swim in. The artificial – and natural – islands surrounding Dubai should be included on any itinerary, and if you’re planning on staying for a while, why not venture further into the UAE, and holiday in Ras al-Khaimah or Abu Dhabi?
History, hot beaches, and high-rises are all there for you to visit – you just have to fit it all in!
