Top 5 Tourist Attraction in Dubai

Visiting Dubai


One of the most interesting cities nowadays is Dubai with its new buildings and its wonderful atmosphere.  Let’s see the most famous tourist attractions that you should visit in Dubai.

1. Burj Khalifa:
Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world; that is a special marque of Dubai that it has the tallest, the biggest and glitziest places on Earth. Burj Khalifa contains the fastest lift in the world.

The views from the building are spectacular. It is heaven for photographers so if you are a photographer, you can take some of the most incredible photos you will ever capture. Watch the views first thing in morning and at night and notice the difference; capture the sunset and the sunrise. You can also see the beach.

2. Dubai Creek:
Now after enjoying Burj Khalifa which is an example of our ultra-modern civilization, enjoy a simple abra ride on Dubai Creek. For one dirham, you can take a beautiful boat (which will be old roofed for the atmosphere) from Bur Dubai Abra Station (which is located on the southern side) and take a ride across the creek. It is so lovely when it is sunset especially when a call to prayer happens; it is so spiritual experience.

The city was established in 1960s and you will feel like you were there when they decided to build the city especially if you took this trip after visiting Burj Khalifa. On the other side, there is a souk where you can do shopping for inexpensive prices; it is a surprise I know to do shopping in Dubai on the cheap.

3. The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding:
Islam is the main religion of United Arab Emirates and many people think that it is the religion of terrorism but they want to know the truth about this religion; this place is the most perfect to know about Islam. Sheikh Mohammed was married to a European woman and the general manager of the place is Sheikh Nasif who is a so charismatic character. You will leave this place with a whole new idea about the Islamic world.     

4. Dubai’s public parks:
Why are the public parks of Dubai different from any public parks around the world? Because you will not find Filipino, Pakistani, Indian, Emirati, Arabic and European families sitting and playing together except in Dubai. Any public park in Dubai will make you feel that the world is just one big family.

5. Burj Al Arab:
This is the world’s only 7-star hotel; it calls itself that. It is an iconic building that is designed to be like a billowing sail with its various views. The most amazing view is the one from the public beach that is next to it. The hotel is always among the recommendations of the most luxurious hotels in the whole world.

These are just 5 places. Dubai has more and more places that you should visit while you are there. Try to gather all the information about the places, the prices, what to do and how to do everything. I am sure that it will be a great experience.
