8 Top-rated tourist attractions in Dubai – Places that should be in your Dubai itinerary

Dubai was once a desert outpost, but now the city shines with everything modern, in fact, the city is never reluctant to show its ability to afford things that are expensive and futuristic.


Burj Khalifa

Standing at 829.8 meters, the Dubai's unmistakable landmark Burj Khalifa dominates the city's skyline. The most loved feature of this colossal structure is its observation deck that offers sweeping views of the city; a visit to the observation deck also involves a multimedia presentation on Dubai and the building itself. Back at the ground, you see amazing gardens surrounding the building and Dubai Fountain.


Dubai Mall

The premier mall in Dubai, Dubai Mall is one of the top-rated attractions in Dubai, especially where tourists are concerned. With an ice-skating rink, a cinema complex and a gaming zone, Dubai Mall never fails to indulge its visitors. There are also many fashion shows if you choose your time well, and among the most famous occasions are Dubai Summer Surprises and Dubai Shopping Festival.


Dubai Museum

Located in Al-Fahidi Fort, Dubai Museum, is another highlight of wealthy Dubai. The walls of the fort are built with coral blocks, and they are strung together with lime. In the past, the fort was the residence of the ruling family, and it has also served as a seat of government, a prison, and a garrison. The place was refurbished in 1971, and now it serves the city as its premium museum. Home to several traditional boats, the museum courtyard also calls for admiration.


Jumeriah Beach

Located not too far away from Avani Ibn Battuta Hotel Dubai – one of the 4 star hotels in Dubai – Jumeriah Beach forms a part of the affluent residential area Dubai Marina. This is one of the primary destinations that tourists like to visit. The beach is well furnished with facilities like restaurants, sun loungers and waters sports operators.


Dubai Creek and Al Seef District

Dubai Creek is what separates the city into two sections: Bur Dubai on the south and Deira on the north. The creek has always been an influential feature of the city, and it is what drew people in who were tempted by fishing and pearl diving – with more and more people coming into the city, small villages started being erected alongside the creek. This all happened 4,000 years ago, and the modern era began when the Bani Yas tribe took shelter in the city in the 1830s. You can travel across the creek, for that, you need to hop on a dhow or a ferry that sails between Deira Banks and Bur Dubai.


Heritage and Diving Village

To study a bit about Dubai's architecture, culture and maritime history, you should visit the Heritage and Diving Village. There are recreational activities that focus on Bedouin village life. Visitors can drink traditional Arabic coffee from the coffee shop, and they can buy handcrafted items from the small souk found inside the village.


Dubai Aquarium

Dubai Aquarium is home to 140 species of marine life, and so it is regarded as one of the primary Dubai attractions. All the sea creatures are sheltered in a large suspended tank, and you can view the tank from the Dubai Mall for free. There are different ways you can observe the tank and bottom boat tours are one of them.


Burj al-Arab

With a height of 321 meters, Burj al-Arab is the world's tallest hotel. The hotel stands on an artificial island, and it resembles a dhow sail. At night, the building assumes a magical form brought about by its nightly light show.
