Top 5 Things to Do in Dubai – Attractions & Experiences You Won’t Soon Forget!

In the Emirate of Dubai, you will find plenty of interesting things to do, like visiting the Burj Khalifa, shopping at the Dubai Mall, viewing the Dubai Fountain, experiencing Palm Jumeirah, taking a boat ride on Dubai Creek, and more.


Visit the Burj Khalifa

The iconic Burj Khalifa is unquestionably one of Dubai's foremost attractions. Standing at a height of 828 m, this mighty tower is considered to be the tallest skyscraper in the world. As you might expect, this tower dominates the skyline of Dubai, but in order to truly experience its grandeur, you must get a close view of it and venture inside. You are likely to find that on a day with clear skies, the sights from the viewing deck located on level 124 will be amazing. Visitors will also be able to take in the views from one of this skyscraper's lounges or enjoy a delectable meal at one of its restaurants.


Shop at the Dubai Mall

In proximity to the Burj Khalifa, you will find the huge Dubai Mall. Far from being just a shopping mall, this establishment features an array of features that will appeal to the discerning visitor. In addition to more than 1,200 shops as well as 150 different restaurants, this venue also boasts much more; an ice rink, a theme park, a massive indoor waterfall and a splendid fountain in addition to the mammoth Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo! In fact, even if you spent a whole day at the Dubai Mall you are unlikely to be able to experience all of its attractions.


View the Dubai Fountain

Your tour of Dubai's attractions would not be complete without viewing the one of a kind Dubai Fountain. This amazing creation is considered to be the biggest fountain in the world to feature a choreographed system. You will see that this much-admired attraction in the city features a spectacular show with water jets streaming to a height of as much as 150 m. Observers will notice that each of the colourful water jets sways in accordance with the different kinds of music played.


Take a ride on the Dubai Creek

The well-known Dubai Creek is an attraction that is very unlike the glamour and glitz of the modern skyscrapers of the city. Dubai Creek is where the Bani Yas, the founding tribe of Dubai, settled down as it was the location; here the local people engaged in fishing and pearl diving, the mainstays of the economy at the time. Today, the Creek is a fascinating area where you will have the opportunity to take a ride on a traditional sailing vessel known as an "abra". When it comes to serviced apartments in Dubai, an accommodation choice to consider from which the Creek could easily be visited would be Ascott Park Place Dubai.


Experience Palm Jumeirah

The amazing Palm Jumeirah is another of Dubai's creative triumphs. This magnificent creation is an artificial island that has been modelled to resemble the form of a stylized palm tree. Ranking amongst the biggest manmade islands on the globe, Palm Jumeirah features an extensive selection of upscale properties. You will also find a monorail extending down the island's trunk which links with Dubai's tram network, making the island easily accessible.
