5 Things to Do in Dubai – Finding Paradise in the Sands!

You know how sometimes it is impossible to fathom whether certain things really exist or not unless you have seen them with your eyes, that is Dubai. Its record-breaking architecture and manmade islands are few among many of the things we would recommend for you to do in Dubai.


Pay a Visit to the Iconic Burj Khalifa

Standing tall at approximately 828 metres high, the Burj Khalifa is just impossible to miss. It is the world's tallest tower and needless to say dominates the Dubai skyline. However, the true majesty of the building can only be appreciated at close proximity, or better yet, from within the giant building. On a clear day, the observation deck at the 124th level of the Khalifa tower provides some ridiculous views as far as the eye can see, and can only be topped by the absolutely stunning view from the luxurious At The Top Sky Lounge located on the 148th floor. For those of you who would like to hang out a while longer, there are a number of lounges that can accommodate you and your sense of curiosity!


Get Lost in The Dubai Mall

This is no matter for joking for you could totally, literally, get lost in the Dubai Mall for it is that massive. To call this sprawling universe of a building simply a mall feels like quite the disservice, but we are completely running blank for a better word! Spend an entire day here and you still wouldn't be able to cover half the property. With more than a whopping 100 plus shops and 150 different restaurants, this 'planet' is home to its own indoor theme park, an ice rink, a huge indoor waterfall as well as a choreographed outdoor fountain and last but not least, a giant Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo as well. We don't know about you, but we are thinking, is this a whole other galaxy?


The Dubai Fountain

Located at the base of the iconic Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Fountain features the world's largest choreographed fountain system. This wildly popular dancing water show jets streams of water as high as 150 metres in the air with colorful illuminations taking the stage with stunning speed and vibrance. Each jet sways to various musical numbers from around the world, producing what has become one of the most popular show in the entirety of Dubai. In case you have not already noticed, the natives of Dubai apparently have a big quench for the 'world's biggest' titles and we love how ambitious they can be!


The Palm Jumeriah

This manmade island is in the shape of a palm-tree and there is a reason why the locals say 'only in Dubai'. It is one of the largest artificial islands in the world and is the epitome of human ingenuity. Both locals, as well as tourists, enjoy the vast array of high-end hotels that take residence in the area. With a monorail running down the 'trunk' of the alleged 'palm tree island' connectivity to the mainland is established. Hence getting by to the Palm Jumeirah is going to be the least of your concerns- just keep pinching yourself and telling yourself that this is all true, at least that's what we would do! The fact that at present there is an abundance of travel agents such as Mackinnons Travels ready and on the go with numerous holiday tour packages already designed to make you dream holiday a reality, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride!


Dubai Marina- the stunning Cityscape

Marvel at the iconic buildings that are fast springing in what is said to be the world's largest manmade marina in the making! Take in as much of the scenery as you can possibly do with a stroll down the Marina walk or on board a traditional Dhow cruise. This new hotspot is on pretty much every visitor's holiday itinerary for good reason!
