How to Explore Top Attractions with Holidays to Dubai

by Amanda Sutcliffe Travel Deals

In recent times, Dubai has become a world-renowned tourist hotspot in the Middle East region with more than 14 million tourists arriving in this city every year from different parts of the globe. It is the capital of the Dubai emirate and largest city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Historical accounts state that in the 18th century, the city was a small fishing village. Considering the massive developments that have happened over the past couple of decades in this part of the UAE, tourists often find it hard to believe this fact. However, you'll definitely have a wonderful time while holidaying in this Emirati city and visiting the most popular attractions.

Your holidays to Dubai would give you the chance to explore the Burj Khalifa, which is among the most prominent attractions in the city. It is currently the tallest man-made structure on the planet. The construction of this amazing building began in the year 2004 and was officially launched in 2010 with a grand ceremony. It has an outdoor observation deck on its 124th floor, located at a height of 452 metres. Another one is located on the 148th floor at a height of 555 metres, making it the world's highest observation deck. The building has a total of 163 floors, of which 9 are for the maintenance facilities.

During your cheap holidays to Dubai, you'll also get to witness the Burj Al Arab, which is the world's tallest hotel. It has been built on an artificial island that connects to the mainland with the help of a curved private bridge. The design of this hotel resembles a ship's sail and a helipad has been provided at a height of 210 metres near its roof. Although this hotel has been officially rated as a 5-star hotel, it is popularly known among many as the only 'seven-star hotel in the world', though the management of this hotel has never used or encouraged this description.

While enjoying your cheap holidays to Dubai you'll also get the chance to have some exciting shopping experiences at the Dubai Mall. This is the world's second-largest mall in terms of total land area. It draws more than 50 million visitors annually from different corners of the globe and houses over a thousand shops. This mall is also home to many indoor attractions, such as the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, VR Park Dubai, and Reel Cinemas. Children can have a wonderful time in the interactive edutainment theme park located in this mall, called KidZania.

Another popular attraction you can't afford to ignore is the Palm Jumeirah. It is a group of artificial islands created in the shape of a palm tree with a crescent at the top. The construction of this archipelago began in the year 2001 and by 2007, it had already claimed its place as the largest artificial island in the world. The Palm Jumeirah is connected to the mainland with the help of a 5.4-kilometre-long monorail line called the Palm Jumeirah Monorail, which is the Middle East region's first monorail.
