Your Dubai Holidays Take You to the Most Popular Attractions

by Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides

Dubai is a city that has progressed rapidly from being a port of call for foreign traders to becoming a globally renowned metropolis. However, it has successfully managed to keep its rich cultural heritage alive despite so much modernisation and infrastructural changes. It is one of the glamorous cities of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the capital of the Emirate of Dubai. Although the revenues from oil exports have played a major role in its development, it is its iconic attractions that have made it popular worldwide over the years.

One of the most famous attractions that you'll get to explore during your Dubai holidays is the city's landmark superstructure, the Burj Khalifa. This is the world's tallest building and reaches a height of 829.8 metres. The observation deck of this amazing skyscraper located on the 124th floor would give you a bird's-eye view of the city. During your visit to this observation deck, you'll also get the chance to witness a multimedia presentation on this Emirati city and the building of Burj Khalifa. Upon visiting this building after sunset, you can enjoy excellent views of the city lights and take some wonderful snaps.

If you wish to have an unforgettable shopping experience, visit the Dubai Mall. It is the world's largest mall with regards to the total area and includes more than 1,000 shops. As soon as the Dubai flights land in the city airport and the tourists are taken to their hotel, some of them visit this mall to savour its awe-inspiring entertainment options. Among them are an ice-skating rink, a 22-screen cinema complex, and a gaming zone. If you're visiting Dubai with your entire family, the children would love to be in the indoor theme parks. Besides the shopping and dining experiences, you can also witness the entertaining shows that are held regularly in this mall.

Located in the Al Fahidi Fort is the Dubai Museum. It was opened in the year 1971 by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the former ruler of the city. You can visit this museum during your Dubai holidays to get a glimpse of the traditions of the Emirate. The museum underwent extensive restoration works in 1995 and is today Dubai's major museum. During your visit, you'll get to witness the old maps of UAE and this city. This will give you an idea about the kind of expansion that Dubai went through after the discovery of oil in the region.

Another fascinating attraction you just can’t forget to visit is the Jumeirah Mosque. Many consider this majestic mosque to be the most beautiful of all the mosques in this part of the world. It is one of the finest examples of Islamic architecture and resembles the massive Al-Azhar Mosque of Cairo. The Jumeirah Mosque looks particularly beautiful in the evening when the entire structure comes alive with floodlights. The guided tours offered by the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Cultural Understanding would give you some insights into the Islamic way of life. These tours start at 10:00 am in the morning, except Fridays.
