Dubai has become, for a few years, one of the most desirable places. It is true that it is a destination where history is far from being the most interesting, since in reality it is a city that in recent decades has grown almost from nothing.
However, the idea of enjoying this veritable sea of skyscrapers that this city that emerged from the desert has become, the possibility of strolling through some of the most impressive shopping malls in the world (some of which include ice skating rinks or of indoor skiing inside) or the leisure offer that includes fun desert safaris to the most exclusive parachute jumps) have made this small Arab emirate a place that is increasingly in demand as a tourist destination.
In this post I am going to tell you about three of the essential activities in Dubai.
The Burj Khalifa
A visit to Dubai would not be understood without visiting the Burj Khalifa, the tallest skyscraper in the world. At 828 meters high, this enormous building holds the record since it was inaugurated in 2010.
So that we understand the magnitude of the work, when it was built, the Burj Khalifa exceeded by more than 300 meters the tallest building in the world to date, which was Taipei 101, with a height of 509 meters. However, this record could soon be lost to the benefit of a new skyscraper rising in Saudi Arabia.
Well, climbing the Burj Khalifa becomes, without a doubt, one of the priority objectives of every traveler who arrives in Dubai. You should know, however, that the tickets to go up to the Burj Khalifa are not particularly cheap and that, in addition, they usually end well in advance.
Make a safari through the desert
Another of the essentials of Dubai is to go on a desert safari. The truth is that we love deserts, to the point that we always take a little bottle of sand home. When we get home, we see that each desert has a different hue, ranging from the lightest to the reddest. Depending basically on the minerals that compose it. Well, going on a desert safari in Dubai is very attractive. It is done, as it could not be otherwise, in a 4×4 driven by an expert who spends a long time going up and down dunes as if it were an African raid.
The Sheikh Zayed Mosque
The last of the places that I have selected in these essentials of Dubai is not actually in Dubai. I am referring to the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, often considered the most beautiful modern mosque in the world. The best thing is to take an excursion to Abu Dhabi from Dubai to see not only the mosque in question but also other places of interest that the neighboring emirate offers. However, just having the opportunity to visit the Sheikh Zayed Mosque would already be worth the trip.
So are you now ready to take your Dubai Holidays?
