Here are Top 5 things to do in Dubai you should refer for your trip in 2021
Dubai, the largest city in the UAE, consummate conglomerate, tourism hotspot, and global business seat – it’s a city that captures everyone’s imagination. But suppose you don’t have a great deal of time to spend there to enjoy this mega-glamourous city.
Let’s suppose that you only have one day in Dubai and add to that the fact that you are in transit. How difficult would it be to see the highlights? Would you be able to enjoy the city, its skyscrapers such as the Burj Khalifa and its many sights and attractions? Well, you need some help there, and that’s where we come in. Let us guide you on how to make your day in Dubai count and count hard so that you will have had a wonderful experience in the City of Gold when you leave the city.
You’ll have to book your tickets in advance to get to the observatory deck on the 125th floor of the Burj Khalifa, but it’s so very worth it. The building is simply spectacular – it spirals up, piercing the clouds with its spire that’s hard to see from below. Standing proudly at 829 meters, the Khalifa should be on your list of ‘not-to-miss attractions while in Dubai for a day.
The world’s most extensive choreographed fountain system, the Dubai Fountains, shoots jets of water as high as 140 meters, about the height of a 45 story building. You’ll see a fabulously choreographed performance every 30 minutes with a different piece of music each time.
Touted as the second-largest mall globally, the Dubai Mall has over 1000 retail outlets in 4 fabulously rich-looking levels. The largest mall in the world is apparently the Edmonton Mall in Canada. The food court has 800+ eateries, apart from a multiplex called Reel Cinemas, with more theatres than you can believe. The Mall is also home to the Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, a definite draw for kids and adults alike.
It’s tough to grow greenery in the Middle East, given its dry climate. That’s what makes the Dubai Miracle Garden so very impressive. This garden is filled with about 100 million blooming and colorful flowers designed into fabulous art sculptures.
DUBAI’S TRADITIONAL SOUKS
Browse the narrow alleyways of souks and get the feel of a city that hasn’t changed a bit in a century. You’ll hear loud haggling, and smell the incredible smell of coffee beans being roasted, and the scent of perfumes and spices will hit you long before you step close to a stall. Visit the spice, gold, and perfume souks of Deira and Bur Dubai for an authentic Middle Eastern experience.
