6 Things You Must Do in Wonderful Dubai
Dubai is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. The skyscrapers sprout from the ground and are equipped with the latest conveniences. Here you earn and spend a lot of money. As a tourist, you can’t help but be drawn to the extravagance that is Dubai; luxury hotels, beautiful boulevards and futuristic buildings. If you want a break from the city, discover the delights of the desert. Here are 6 things you must do in Dubai.
1. Colors and smells: visit the old souks
Stroll through the old souks of Dubai. For example, there is the Gold Souk, the Spice Souk and the Meena Bazaar. The names of Gold Souk and Spice Souk say it all, as here you can buy gold and spices. Haggling is a must in the Gold Souk, otherwise you will pay the price! In the Meena Bazaar you will find old-fashioned shopping, where you can buy products from the homeland of the local Indians.
The Burj Khalifa is not only an architectural masterpiece, but also the tallest building in the world. There are two floors from where you can see the city (floor 124 and 148). There is also a restaurant on the 122nd floor that is worth trying (although not for those with a fear of heights).
3. The Dubai Mall: Shop till you drop
Yes, in Dubai you really can shop till you drop. The Dubai Mall has over 1,200 stores, so if you’re not sure what to do, it’s sure to keep you busy for a while. If you get hungry and need more energy, fear not because there are plenty of restaurants. Don’t miss the beautiful water fountains!
4. Super Deluxe Lunch at the Burj Al Arab
If you’re not going to eat at the Dubai Mall, how about taking a dip and having lunch at a 7-star hotel: Burj Al Arab. Do you prefer to drink champagne? Then book a luxury tea. It’ll stretch your wallet (and definitely your credit card), but it’s an experience you’ll never forget! The interior of the Burj Al Arab is a delight in itself, not to mention fancy dining.
5. The Dubai Museum: History of Dubai
If one wants a bit of culture, one should head to the Dubai Museum. The Museum shows how people lived in the city hundreds (if not thousands) of years ago, what their habits were, and what the houses and streets looked like.
6. Spend the night in the Dubai desert
There are many activities that you can do in the Dubai desert. Traverse the sands in a jeep, for example, and then ride a camel; What will be the most exciting? You can also stay there overnight. Now that is really an experience! Not everyone can say that they have spent the night in the desert.
As you know, Dubai has a lot to offer. And we haven’t even told you about the beaches, there are a grand total of 12. Now that’s the good life.
