From bustling traditional markets to skiing indoors (yes you read that right, skiing in one of the hottest cities in the world!), there is something that will appeal to everyone.
We have put together a short guide of four fabulous attractions that can be found in Dubai and we recommend that you put them all on your itinerary:
A souk is a traditional Arabic market, each selling a variety of goods, and there are numerous that can be found in and around Dubai.
The Spice Souk welcomes visitors with large sacks of fragrant spices that have been freshly made and that are pure. Additionally, there is a chance to indulge in delicious fresh fruits and vegetables – which vary depending on the season.
The Textile Souk sells an array of beautiful fabrics, from silk to cotton and sari fabric, and visitors can purchase the amount they want and can have it made into a divine one-of-a-kind item of clothing.
The most popular souk, the Gold Souk, sells glittering gold in the form of jewellery, bars and trinkets, all of which can be purchased at a reasonable price.
While visiting Dubai, one of your first stops should be The Burj Khalifa. One of the most iconic buildings in the world, this record breaker offers travellers the opportunity to see Dubai and beyond from a whole new perspective.
As the tallest building in the world, visitors will take the fastest elevator in the world to one of the two viewing decks where they can take photos and stare out at the city in wonder. Additionally, there is the chance to indulge in delicious food at the restaurant with the most breath taking view.
Lost Chambers Aquarium
Located at Atlantis, The Palm, the Lost Chambers Aquarium brings to light the ancient ruins of the lost city of Atlantis that have finally been uncovered!
For those who have an interest in the myth of Atlantis, there are hourly myth tours and Aquatheatre shows that can be attended to learn more about the lost city.
What’s more, for those who love marine life, Atlantis, The palm has two very special hotel rooms – Underwater Suites, two of the most unique rooms in Dubai – where guests can wake up to a beautiful view of the Ambassadors Lagoon and all of its underwater inhabitants!
The first indoor ski centre in the Middle East, Ski Dubai offers a cool retreat for those who want to escape the blistering temperatures outside and have some fun while doing it.
The indoor ski centre provides visitors with the opportunity to learn a new sport (if they have never taken to the snow before) or conquer the first ever indoor black run and numerous jumps and rails.
Additionally, there are other activities, including tobogganing, a ski lift, a café where viewers can watch the action down below from and skiing or snowboarding lessons.
