Dubai’s historical clash is one and a half, from the dizzying highs of the Burj Khalifa to the tangy spices of the souks. Get insiders for your next city break in the best attractions places to visit Dubai
Public parks in Dubai
Parks may not be your first partner in Dubai, but the city boasts some of the most stunning, quiet, tidy, green parks anywhere. Pay a 5dhs charge to enter a place other than public spaces in other cities to see the Filipinas, Pakistanis, Indians, Emirates, Arabs and European families barbequing and playing ball games together. Try Sheik Zayed Road Safa Park for a massive 150-acre of lawns, waterfalls and mountains built for jogging and activities like roundabouts. Mushrif Park, with its vast woodlands and its park, Khawaneej road is a perfect bet if you have kids in tow (you might need to rent some wheels for this one). Pack a lunch, leave behind you and enjoy the worries.
Burj Al Arab
The Burj is considered ‘The first 7-star hotel in the world’ and is definitely one of the most famous buildings in Dubai, no matter whether or not you agree. The Burj is built as a bending sail at a height of 321 m along the coast of Umm Suqeim. There are many views, but one of the best is from the adjacent public beach to the beach, with the Burj at the back. It is one of the world’s most photographed structures and has regularly voted the luxurious hotel in the world, so it is inevitably reasonably pricey to the general public. But here is a nice tip: go for a drink at the Dhow and Anchor on Jumeirah Beach Hotel, opposite the hotel and relax on the terrace to make your photo opp even better.
Ski Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates
Would you want to hit the desert and ski pistes the same weekend? Ski Dubai, the massive ski slope found in the Emirates Mall at the end of town Marina is not absent. The weather in the desert is a bit of a shock, but you can employ all the appropriate supplies, clothes and ski lessons so it isn’t necessary that you pack your skis. You have to do it for the skis. Even a café bar is halfway down the ski slope, so that you can stop for a hot cocoa buzzer to watch the fun unfold.
Park of Wild Wadi Water
Unleash the inner kid in this amazing water park, which is almost like a miniature world by the sea. In Dubai, you can apply the venue to your ranking if you never witness an underwater roller coaster or a state-of-the-art surfer. Days on Tantrum Alley and Burj Surj tube slides can be easily wasted, though children enjoy splash-tastic water guns and running slides on the dhow.
Thank you for your time.
