Dubai is a thriving hotsport of tourism, growing seemingly exponentially year on year. UAE’s most visited Emirate publically stated that they don’t want to be over reliant on oil for their revenue streams, so less than twenty years ago they set their sites on becoming one of the world’s favourite hotspots, and they’ve nailed it. I spent a few days there with a friend last year, and to be honest I thought I mightn’t like and I was super wrong – loved it, and would happily live there for a year or so.

There’s actually a lot to check out, but i know most people only go for a day or two en route to Asia or Europe, with that in mind, check out the top 5 things to see in Dubai when you go:

The Burj Khalifa

Dubai’s most known claim to fame. The world’s tallest building sores above everything else in the area, it’s really something to marvel at. You can’t miss it actually, but if you want to climb it you have to fork out about 50USD, hefty pricetag sure – but it’s the tallest in the whooooole world.

The Fountains

A nice follow up to the pricey Burj Khalifa is the lazer/light/water show at the bottom of the building. Every night from six PM, they show an amazing combination with the fountains – oh, and it’s free.

Desert Safari

It’s the middle-east folks, and for most visitors here it’s the only middle easten country they’ll likely visit so it’s the main chance to hang with the nomadic Bedouin tribe, ride over sand dunes in a Range Rover, sleep in a tent in the desert and see the most amazing night sky imaginable. Unmissable

Yes Skiing in the Middle East, and yes it’s awesome, and yes it’s pretty expensive, like most tourist attractions here. You can hire literally everything you need, so turn up in your shorts and flip-flops yet within thirty minutes you’ll be on the slopes. Pretty impressive Dubai, well played.

Burj Al-Arab

Dubai’s first iconic building has been bumped down the list since the Burj Khalifa opened, but still the gorgeous curves and the islamic-inspired architecture of one of the world’s best hotels is still something amazing to marvel at. There are a lot of cocktail bars where you can gaze out on the Burj as it changes colour throughout the night, beautiful.

  1. I Heard that Dubai is one of the most exciting cities on earth to be pampered, indulged.I haven’t seen Dubai.The photographs and articles are fabulous especially Ski Dubai, Fountains. The moment I read your article I added Dubai to my bucket list.

  2. I have been to the UAE and to me Dubai stands out the most among the 7 states. The transformation of the state from a mere dessert land / fishing village into the paradise it is now….. WOW! I was totally Speechless! Visiting Dubai should be included in your bucket list for sure. I can see how much the expatriates, foreign investors, the tourists and of course, the locals’ open-mindedness have all contributed towards its current Dubai indeed!

  3. Desert safari is one of the great thing to do in dubai. Apart from these, there are few more attractions in dubai such as, Jumeirah Mosque, Deira Souks, Sheikh Zayed Road, Bastakia Mosque, Hatta mountain safari are also few more attractions in dubai.

  4. i would love to just go see this beautfull country,,but woundering if theres any danger there,,i just love the sites and want to go see it for myself..

  5. I was in Dubai Feb 2015, it’s an amazing sight and experience. The architecture is beautiful, so many iconic buildings…its a rare combination of architecture and cultural heritage.

  6. Never been to Dubai (not yet!), but we like to contrast of the modern architecture and the dessert you’re showing!
