Dubai, it never stops… you can do anything from Skiing to Skydiving. Literally be on top of the World or submerge your dangerous side in shark diving.
The Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest building at a height of 830m. The views from the observation deck are phenomenal, a must visit if you’re in Dubai. There are package options Inc. dinner if you’re looking for something special at the Burj Club or Atmosphere.
The Dancing Fountains are a top attraction at the Dubai Mall. Every half hour watch the fountains dance to background music in different languages. It’s spectacular – a must see. It can get busy so best be early to get a good view!
If you’re feeling adventurous you can head to the Dubai Mall Aquarium where you can do the walk around tour or try out the encounters with the sharks or sting rays. My personal experience I really enjoyed the Shark Walker Experience, submerged inside a metal gage inside the aquarium surrounded by sea life, it’s a pretty scary but unimaginable experience that you won’t ever forget whilst in Dubai.
Dubai Mall itself an experience… The largest mall in the world, filled with over one thousand outlets, restaurants and even an indoor Ski slope. What better way to cool yourself down after a day sunbathing?
In the evenings, JBR Walk is a good area to head to, it has a good choice of cultural restaurants with Fast food & Coffee Shops and ice cream parlours. Local vendors line the promenade with souvenirs, or you can catch up with the latest big screen movies at the Skymax Cinema or if you’re a Sports Fan then head down to Barasti Beach for all your Sports screened live.
