5 Top Attractions to Visit in Dubai - Must not miss places

Dubai is the most developed and visited Emirate of the United Arab Emirates. To have a truly memorable experience in Dubai, these are some of the places in Dubai that you must visit.


Burj Khalifa

No matter where it is located, the tallest building in the world is always going to be something that is worth visiting, which is why the Burj Khalifa tops the list of must visit places in Dubai. The Burj Khalifa stands at a staggering 829m and holds the title of being the tallest manmade structure on earth. Standing on the ground and observing this mega-structure is amazing enough, but those who want to know what it feels like to virtually be on top of the world can take the 'At the Top' tour to the observation platform at the 124th level of the Burj Khalifa, be immersed in the glorious panoramic views from the top.


The Malls

Dubai is no stranger to glitzy malls. The Emirate boasts some of the trendiest malls in the Middle East, which promise to make shopping all the most exciting. Some of the top malls of Dubai include the famous Dubai Mall; a multi-storied shopping and entertainment complex which is considered to be the largest shopping mall in the world, the Mall of the Emirates; a popular shopping mall with over 700 stores, the Wafi Mall; and Egypt inspired shopping complex, the Mercato Mall; boasting Venetian architecture and wellness of the Renaissance, and many more! A stay that is located within the ease of things to do in Deira Dubai would be, for instance, Avani Deira Dubai Hotel.


Palm Jumeirah

This island made of reclaimed land is one of the Middle East's finest engineering and architectural marvels. Taking the shape of a massive palm, Palm Jumeirah is a tourist resort in and bit itself. It houses numerous hotels and attractions and is one of the most iconic landmarks in Dubai. One of the most epic attractions at the Palm Jumeirah is the Atlantis The Aquaventure at the Atlantis Hotel. This award-winning theme park is one of the most popular water parks in the Middle East and is full of exciting attractions and thrilling rides and slides.


The Deserts

A visit to the Middle East is not complete without a visit to the deserts. The deserts are known to have a certain enchantment about them, and the sight of miles of soft sand and gentle sand dunes is indeed quite mesmerizing. The best way to explore the desert is to embark on a desert safari, where a 4x4 will take you all around the desert and bash a few sand dunes. Thereafter you can stop at a desert camp for some authentic Middle Eastern cuisine and other desert activities such as camel riding, sand boarding, and witnessing cultural performances.


The Parks

Dubai is known for its many amazing parks. Although the city has a reputation for being home to numerous buildings and skyscrapers, the presence of many luscious parks gives Dubai a picturesque look. Some of the most popular parks of Dubai include the Creek Park, Safa Park, Za'abeel Park, Al Barsha Park, Mushrif Park, and Mamzar Beach Park. Each of these parks is beautiful and spacious, and therefore are ideal for spending time with friends and family. Although not technically a park, the Miracle Garden is also well worth a visit.
