Interestingly enough, wherever you go in Dubai, you’ll come across something great or huge! Be it picturesque views or enormous architectural marvels. In fact, there are an array of things in Dubai that are considered the largest or best in the world:

  • Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest skyscraper -the height of 3 Eiffel Towers
  • The Dubai Mall – one of the biggest shopping malls worldwide
  • The Dubai Aquarium Tank – with a 10-million-liter capacity, a 48-meter walk-through tunnel and over 140 aquatic species
  • The Dubai International Airport – with the largest Terminal 3 ever (with a 5-star hotel, jacuzzi, swimming pool, gym, gardens, stores, etc.)
  • The Dubai Celebration Chain – the largest gold chain ~5km and 240kg
  • and many other places of great interest

We’d like to share our list of top tourist hotspots to visit in Dubai. Something tells us you’ll love it…

1. Global Village
Attention, there’s danger of losing your sense of timing – with over 17 million square feet to investigate! Here you can “cross the world” by attending pavilions devoted to various countries (~90). Enjoy a plethora of delicious food, carnival, exciting live concerts, shows, and games.

2. Museum of the Future
A great torus-shaped landmark in the Financial District that symbolizes and triggers the future (as the technologies exhibited aim to solve the upcoming issues humanity may face). The exhibition takes up 7 floors, that is more than 30,000 square meters!

3. The Dubai Frame
Can you imagine a 492-feet-tall picture frame? You won’t find any larger frame anywhere in the world. The view is breathtaking!

4. O-14 Tower
Can you guess why one would call a building “the Swiss Cheese Tower”?  The thing is the O-14 Tower stands out with its unusual design solution built around a natural cooling system – 1,300 holes in the structure that make it resemble a huge piece of Swiss cheese. Would be cool to take a selfie against it, no?

5. Miracle Garden
72,000 square meters covered with flowers and plants – this is the largest natural flower garden in the world. A fragrant venue you can enjoy for hours… Luckily, there’re restaurants with Arabic, Indian, and American food, as well as cafes and kiosks where you can grab a snack!

6. The Dubai Mall
A 500,000-meter square shopping space – the largest in the world! More than 1,200 stores to find souvenirs, a large walk-through aquarium to admire the marine world (Underwater Zoo), a world-class Dubai Ice Rink, a gaming zone, and a lot of other things to enjoy. The Dubai Mall serves as the entryway to Burj Khalifa, and you can also easily approach the Dubai Fountain from here.

7. Burj Khalifa
Getting to the top of the tallest skyscraper in the world sounds… exciting? (if not scary!) Burj Khalifa opens up a jaw-dropping view of the horizon, and is especially mesmerizing during sunset.

8. Dubai Fountain
The dazzling fountain with dancing water synchronized to the beats of popular music – a truly amazing eye-catcher. Illuminated with ~1.5 million lumens of projected light, the Dubai Fountain is a beloved tourist spot.

Top 5 Beaches

If you fancy basking in the sun, lying on the clean soft sand, swimming, or raising your adrenaline by doing some water sports, you’ll love this Top 5 Beaches selection:

1. JBR Open Beach  
– the biggest & the best. A public beach in the Jumeirah Beach Residence area, rich in facilities, snack spots, water sports & equipment rent points, and The Beach (a massive open-air mall).

2. Umm Suqeim Beach
– beloved by surfers. So if you’re keen on riding waves, come this way! Besides, this is one of the only beaches in Dubai that’s lit up at night and allows night-time swimming.

3. The Palm Jumeirah
– the spectacular palm-frond-shaped artificial archipelago, you must have heard of it. It’s not oriented on the public sector, but rather a luxury segment. However, some clubs (the WHITE Beach and the RIVA Beach Club) do sell entry tickets.

4. Jebel Ali
– will be your best choice if you’re looking to dive in the warm waters of the Arabian Gulf. Or if you want to seclude yourself from the entire fuss, as it is rarely crowded.

5. Black Palace Beach
 – the beach in its simplest sense: enjoy the warm crystal water, soft golden sand and beautiful views at the natural wild beach. But keep in mind that you’ll find no facilities, no vendors, no restaurants, not even sun loungers. Still, it is a quiet coastline venue with marvelous views.
