The 10 Attractions You Must See in Dubai

Dubai has transformed itself in recent years with a series of creative, ambitious construction projects that have catapulted this city to the top of every bucket list. Here are a few attractions you won’t want to miss when you visit this desert hotspot.

Burj Khalifa

At 829.8 meters tall, the Burj Khalifa stands proudly as the world’s tallest building. Visit the observation deck on the 124th floor for a gravity-defying, jaw-dropping view.


Dubai Fountains

Brought to you by the same team behind the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas, the Dubai Fountain show is a true spectacle. Grab a seat in a nearby cafe, and take it all in.


Burj Al Arab

Dubai is home to the world’s tallest hotel, the Burj Al-Arab. If you can’t afford the $15,000/night luxury suite, try dining amongst the sea creatures in the underwater restaurant!


Palm Islands

There are two palm-shaped artificial islands off the coast. Palm Jumeirah already houses luxury villas and a water park. The larger Palm Jebel Ali is still under construction.


The World Dubai

Just 2.5 kilometers off the coast, The World Dubai is an artificial archipelago in the shape of the world map. These 300 mini-islands are secluded properties for exclusive investors.


Jumeirah Beach

Dubai gets some intense sun. And that means you’ll be needing a beach. Jumeirah Beach is the best sandy strip in town, and the hub of hotels makes it a great home base for tourists.


Dubai Creek

The creek divides Dubai into two towns (Deira to the north, Bur Dubai to the south). Check out the Dhow Wharfage, where some fishing dhows have anchored for over a century.


Dubai Museum

The Dubai museum is housed inside the 18th century Al-Fahidi Fort. Learn about the Emirates expansion after the oil boom, and examine traditional Emirati musical instruments.


Dubai Mall

In a city this well-known for luxury, you better believe the Dubai mall is a must-see! Inside, you’ll find an entrance to Burj Khalifa, an ice-skating rink, a games center, and a cinema.


Dubai Marina

Spanning three kilometers along the Persian Gulf, the Dubai Marina is the largest man-made marina in the world upon completion, and house over 12,000 residents and tourists.
