In recent years, Dubai has become one of the most extraordinary places to vacation at. Dubai is focused on setting world records with the most extravagant and never before seen tourist attractions. Ranging from some of the biggest man made islands, to the world’s biggest hotel and some of the biggest and most architecturally advanced sky scrapers. Dubai is geared 100% towards becoming the number one place for tourists to spend their time vacationing at. Most of Dubai’s current attractions are mind blowing. Many are in planning and every single one is unique and in some way, shape or form. Who has ever heard of an entirely underwater hotel? It sounds science fiction but Dubai is planning on constructing such a thing.
This article will go through some of Dubai’s best places to visit. From some extremely beautiful sights, to enormous skyscrapers, to magnificent malls and shopping centers. Dubai has it all and it’s all going to be depicted here.
If you are staying in Dubai and have a lot of money, I would encourage you to stay at Burj Al Arab. It’s a sail shaped hotel located on a man made island in the sea. It’s one of the biggest hotels in the world and is world renowned for being a “7 star hotel.” If you think the exterior is amazing, wait until you get inside. The inside is blown out and is as extravagant as it gets. The hotel contains 202 mega-luxurious suites. Each decked out in the most expensive decors. If Burj Al Arab proves to be too expensive for your wallet, I would at least suggest you pass by it while in Dubai. It’s quite a magnificent sight.
If you’re in Dubai, the one thing I assure you that you won’t miss is Burj Khalifa. It’s the world’s tallest building, surpassing everything made by man so far. Burj Khalifa stands at an enormous 2,717 feet, more then 1000 feet taller then the next tallest skyscraper in the world, Taipei 101. With its 160 floors, it’s the most massive building ever created. Nothing comes even close. Burj Khalifa is close to twice as tall as the empire state building in New York City. Its observation deck sits on the 124th floor, making it the highest outdoor observation deck any where in the world.
Another amazing place to visit during your time in Dubai is Atlantis. It is located on one of the three palm islands in Dubai. Atlantis offers 1539 rooms, an extraordinarily large water park called Aquaventure and a bay of dolphins that allows visitors to swim with the creatures. Atlantis is a prime place to stay if you want to enjoy the watery aspect of Dubai.
If shopping is what you’re into, Dubai Mall is the place for you. It is by far, the largest shopping Mall in the world. What other Mall do you know of that has 1200 shops? It’s a shopper’s paradise. It’s so big in fact that it houses an aquarium and under water zoo that contains over thirty three thousand animals. The mall isn’t just a line of shop after shop, it houses enormous cinemas holding over two thousand seats. The mall even has an indoor ice rink. Even if you aren’t a big time shopper, this place is a must visit.
In Dubai, beaches are plenty and the areas surrounding the beaches are beautiful. In particular, Dubai Jumeirah Beach is one of the most expensive and exclusive beach in Dubai. The Palm Islands also provide beautiful beaches.
Ever wanted to go skiing? How about skiing in the middle of the desert? Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort in the middle of Dubai. Ski Dubai has an indoor mountain with various slopes for skiers and snowboarders. Ski Dubai is not entirely all for skiers and snowboarders though, inside the massive resort is a snow park with many different snow based activities ranging from sledding to a snowball fighting area to an icy cave and a place to make snowmen. Ski Dubai is the perfect place to get out of the scorching heat of Dubai and go straight into an icy winter experience.
Lastly, if you plan on going to Dubai, you must visit the man made island, The Palm Jumeirah. Dubai currently has two more islands being constructed that will be more massive then The Palm Jumeirah but currently only Jumeirah is complete. These islands are majestic and truly magnificent creations. They are so big that they are easily seen from space.
In conclusion, Dubai has become one of the best places to vacation at with countless attractions. If you are planning on going on vacation, give Dubai a thoughtful consideration. Everything you see in Dubai will absolutely blow your mind. You’ll find yourself mesmerized by the insane architecture and the sheer beauty of the city’s design.
