Dubai has emerged from the sand in a few years and is now one of the largest cities in the United Arab Emirates. It is a big city with many attractions to discover and must-see places to visit on the shores of the Persian Gulf. Dubai does not have many bars and has no nightclubs.
Here’s a Glimpse of Dubai Tourist Attractions
• Ski Dubai
Not the first city that comes to mind as a ski destination, Dubai offers a break from the heat and dust of the desert with the first indoor ski center in the Middle East. If you want to see the desert and go skiing do not miss Ski Dubai, a huge ski slope located in the Mall of the Emirates on the marina side, at the end of the city, near the Burj Al Arab. It’s a bit of a shock to move from desert heat to sub-zero temperatures. Ski instructors can help you, or you can try yourself.
There is even a café-bar in the middle of the track, as in the mountains so you can take a break. You can rent all the necessary equipment and clothing, so no need to bring your skis. Ski Dubai is the principal among Dubai tourist attractions.
• Dubai Fountains
Open from 6 pm to 11 pm it is a magical show, exciting and free, essential when you go sightseeing in Dubai and one of the chief Dubai tourist attractions. If you’ve been to Las Vegas before, you may have already seen the Bellagio Fountains but at Dubai, it is bigger and better than at Bellagio.
The fountains are at the foot of the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Mall, the largest mall in the world. There are many restaurants next to the fountains and it is better to book in one of them and eat on the terrace in winter to admire the fountains in their fine splendor.
• Go Shopping
Go to Dubai and not go shopping? Depending on your budget, you can choose between the hundreds of stores in Dubai Mall, the largest shopping center in the world that also has an ice rink and an aquarium or lose yourself in the souks of Old Dubai, where you have to negotiate to make good deals, between jewelry, fabrics, and spices. Do not miss to buy saffron, which is cheap in Dubai. There are also “souks” in other parts of the city but these are ultra-modern and ultra-clean and are “souks” only name such as the Souk Madinat Jumeirah. Dubai mall is the main Dubai tourist attraction.
• Dinner on the water
If you want to have a good time and eat one night in Dubai, you can choose to dine on a boat and discover Dubai from the waters while enjoying an all-you-can-eat buffet (without alcohol of course).
Quiet and pleasant, it is possible every day and the departure is at 5:00 PM for a return at 8:30 PM. You will have a magnificent view of the Burj Al Arab, but also on the site of Palm Jumeirah. For the fare, you need about $ 50 per person, but with that, you will have a dinner cruise on a beautiful yacht and a buffet with non-alcoholic drinks.
