Dubai’s best tourist attractions

Burj Khalifa and At The Top Observation Deck

We already talked about Burj Khalifa in another post here on the blog (click here to read), but  it deserves to be mentioned again, especially when we talk about tourist spots in Dubai. The Burj Khalifa is located in Downtown and is surrounded by a complex of beautiful buildings, including the Dubai Mall, Dubai Opera and The Palace Hotel.

In the middle of these buildings is a small artificial lake that offers the Dubai Fountain show, the light sources that dance to the rhythm of music every half  hour. The show is complete with the light show on the facade of Burj Khalifa, where dozens of drawings take over the windows and transform it into a new building every second.

It is possible to access the viewpoint At The Top Observation Deck, which is located on floors 124 and 125 of Burj Khalifa. Prices are not as affordable as those of the next attraction – for adults, the ticket price ranges from 125 AED to  200 AED – but without a doubt it is an unforgettable and unique experience.

Global Village

Global Village is an entertainment complex that presents the culture of different countries. With very affordable prices – tickets cost around  15 AED – it is worth a visit. At Global Village, visitors have the opportunity to learn about customs and habits in 30 countries, including Turkey, Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, Qatar, Jordan, Palestine, Pakistan, Thailand, India, China, Russia, Vietnam, United States, France, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom and Australia.

In addition, Global Village also has a large amusement park in the best molds of yesteryear, where everyone has fun and can still win many gifts with the right to sweets and popcorn, but the park also has more radical toys for those who like more adrenaline.

Dubai Mall

For those who love shopping, the largest mall in the world is a fantastic attraction. With more than 1,400 shops, restaurants and attractions, you will surely need more than a day to get to know it fully! The mall is in the same complex as the Burj Khalifa, so you can enjoy a whole day in this downtown area. The entrance to the Burj Khalifa viewpoint is through the mall, which also has an ice skating rink and the largest indoor aquarium in the world.

Dubai desert

The Dubai Desert is one of the most famous attractions and visited by tourists, especially those passionate about nature and adventure. The orange dunes at sunset enchant anyone and are the perfect setting for amazing photos. The most famous trip to the desert is also the most crowded: Safari 4×4 from Dubai.

Several companies carry out the tour and basically follow the same itinerary pattern: passengers leave the city towards the dunes in the desert around 4pm. There are several 4×4 cars that carry out the tour for the same company. Everyone meets at a predetermined point in the desert and from there they start to walk the dunes, until they reach the highest point where tourists can enjoy a wonderful sunset.

Burj Al Arab Public Beach

To close our list of Dubai’s best attractions, we will talk about the public beach of Burj Al Arab (that  7-star hotel). This little piece of Jumeira Beach is the best place to enjoy the incredible view of this imposing building. The use of normal bathing suits is allowed on this beach and there is no restriction on this on the beach, but if you need to leave it, all the rules related to this will apply again.
