As one of the top tourist destinations in the world, Dubai never fails to thrill visitors through its top-notch shopping opportunities, delicious dining options, and luxurious accommodations. With millions of visitors each year, Dubai has exciting attractions for every tourist and is sure to be an unforgettable vacation destination.
It’s impossible to run out of things to do in Dubai—start things off right with an adrenaline-inducing adventure like a ride down the Jumeirah Sceirah at the Wild Wadi water park located right in the heart of the city. Another thrilling option is the Ski Dubai attraction—an indoor ski resort located right in the middle of the desert! For some of the best shopping that this glitzy city has to offer, visit Dubai Mall—conveniently located next to both the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Aquarium. Make sure to also stop by the Mall of the Emirates (Ski Dubai is located inside). For a more low-key and authentic shopping experience, visit the Deira Souks for everything from beautiful hand-crafted jewelry to an amazing variety of spices. Dubai is also a fascinating destination for history buffs—the Dubai Museum, housed inside a fort from the 16th century, is full of interesting relics from thousands of years ago. Explore Bastakia (Old Dubai) to learn about traditional ways of life for people in the region. Since Dubai is known as a luxury capital of the world, make some time to indulge—take a visit to the top of the Burj Khalifa (currently the world’s tallest skyscraper) for some of the most amazing views in the world.
While there are plenty of activities located within Dubai, there are also tons of opportunities for day trips from the area. Abu Dhabi, another major city in the UAE, is only a two hour drive away. Ferrari World, another very popular destination, is also around a two hour drive from Dubai. Lastly, you can even experience a whole new country in the Middle East within a day—the Musandam Peninsula in Oman is only a cruise away.

Since so many of Dubai’s tourists come from other parts of the world, the majority of visitors arrive through Dubai International Airport, located only a short drive from the city center. Once in Dubai, many visitors choose to take public transportation or taxis instead of renting a car—the city is known for having serious traffic and driving conditions. The relatively new metro system is also a good option. Make sure to take an Abra (a small ferry) to cross the creek at some point during your visit.
