Are you planning a trip to Dubai ? The best thing about this city is that it has a lot of highly accessible attractions and activities for both young and old travelers. As it stretches some 40 kilometers along the coast, you can have a straight journey exploring what the place has to offer. Here are the 5 best places to visit in Dubai :
1. Visit the magnificent Burj Khalifa and Musical Fountain.
One thing that you should not miss while having a vacation in Dubai is, to visit the tallest structure on Earth—the Burj Khalifa.
Take a tour towards the top and see for yourself why this is a wonder of modern design and technology. You will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the city from 134 floors above ground on its observation deck, which offer a spectacular view day and night. Beside it is the Musical Fountain which dances with colorful lights and a symphony.
2. Embark on a Desert Safari.
A Dubai desert safari has always been a primary activity that both locals and travelers have to try at least once in their life. However, it has somehow become highly commercialized, causing the romance of the desert to be lost.
This means you should find yourself the right operator that maintains the authenticity back to the desert—yes, you can definitely find one in La Vacanza Travel !
3. Get on board a Dhow Cruise.
A holiday in Dubai can be made more romantic with a dhow cruise during the evening on the Dubai Creek. This will give you an intriguingly different view of the city, where you can see its amazing architecture and other attractions illuminated by night lights.
4. Visit (and even haggle at) the Deira Gold Souk.
Taking a trip to the Gold Souk would show you why the city is named the “City of Gold”. Even if you do not plan to buy jewelry here, it is still worth a visit for its bustling atmosphere.
You will see an impressive scale and variety of gold on offer, which include necklaces, rings, earrings and pendants, in different shades, including white, yellow, pink and even purple.
5. Visit the Grand Mosque and Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi.
The Grand Mosque is the tallest minaret in Dubai, lording more than 50 large and small domes that give it a distinctive silhouette.
It is the heart of the city’s religious and cultural life, with the original building once being a home to the city’s “kuttab” or Quranic school, where children learned to recite their holy book from memory.
A trip to Dubai would also not become complete without taking a side trip to the famous Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, which offers a truly amazing experience for every traveler with thrilling rides, themed restaurants and stores, as well as exciting attractions that are all inspired by the Ferrari brand and its Italian heritage.
