Must See Attractions in Dubai – Best Sightseeing in Town

Dubai has much to offer tourists; from manmade islands to groundbreaking architecture. Of course, tradition is still a part of the city with the Old Quarter exuding that magical Arabic aura.

1

Burj Khalifa – Outstanding Architecture

Dubai's tallest tower the impressive Burj Khalifa dominates the skyline. Standing at a height of 828 metres the building is best explored from within. Climb to the 124th floor and be astounded by the view from the observation deck; quite unmatched by any. Well unless of course, you go higher to the 'At the Top Sky Lounge' located on the 148th floor. Seal your experience at Burj Khalifa by having a meal surrounded by clouds in 'At Mosphere' restaurant on the 122nd floor. You will find the tower on Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard at Downtown Dubai.

The Dubai Mall – A Unique Experience

If you are visiting Burj Khalifa it's hard to miss the extravagant Dubai Mall almost right next door. The place is of course much more than a mere mall. Home to over 1,200 shops and 150 restaurants the place cannot be explored in a mere day. It's a lifestyle destination not simply catering to shopaholics; kids too will love the place boasting an ice rink, indoor theme park, a huge aquarium and indoor zoo, choreographed water fountains and an impressive indoor waterfall. Staying at one of the luxury resorts within easy reach of the mall will certainly be a boost for those of you intent on enjoying all that Dubai Mall has to offer. Located at Financial Centre Road in Downtown Dubai the place is close to plenty of secret city escapes similar to PER AQUUM Hotels & Resorts.

Palm Jumeirah – Manmade Wonder

This is one of the world's largest artificial islands. Designed in the shape of a palm the archipelago of artificial islands is quite a sight. The trunk of the tree has a monorail service that connects Palm Jumeirah to the mainland. A luxurious getaway for varied entertainment options this certainly is a sight worth checking out.

The Dubai Creek – Heart and Soul of the City

Dubai Creek will always be the soul and centre of the city. Surrounded by all the glitz and glamour of the cosmopolitan city Dubai Creek exudes its magical touch reflective of traditional Arabic times. The saltwater estuary is home to the first Bani Yas tribe settlements; it was here that Dubai's main economy of pearl diving and fishing thrived. Today this area is reserved for the marvellous Dubai Museum; taking one back in time to simpler times offering a taste of how Bedouin tribes survived. The Dubai Creek is also where you will find the gold, textile and spice souks; marvellous labyrinths well worth exploring for that authentic Arabic market experience.

Kite Beach – Water Sports at its Best

Water sports are the best attraction at the well named 'Kite Beach'. The sky is dotted with paragliding folks while jet skis, speed boats, water skis and all manner of aquatic sporting fun is readily available there. Out of the water, there is plenty to do, such as grabbing a refreshing smoothie, enjoying a game of beach volleyball or checking out the roller skating park.
