What to see and do
Dubai is a city of superlatives - it is home to the world’s largest mall, tallest building, most luxurious hotel, biggest fireworks display, largest choreographed fountain system, and so on and so forth. Displays of casual decadence are abundant, so don’t be surprised to see droves of supercars on the streets, as well as glittering jewellery and designer products adorning the locals.
Be sure to visit the magnificent Burj Khalifa, officially the tallest building and structure in the world (as of April 2017). The Burj stands at a towering height of 828 metres, and houses the world’s highest observation deck on its 148th floor. Be amazed by the sprawling landscape beneath you, whether the unobstructed view in the day or the bright city lights at night.
Once you’re done with the Burj Khalifa, head to the world’s largest mall - the Dubai Mall. Home to over 1,000 shops, nothing says shop till you drop like Dubai Mall. It even has an aquarium that showcases over 300 species of marine creatures.
And if you need a little break from the retail therapy, the Dubai Fountain, the world’s largest choreographed fountain system. The show runs daily from 7-11pm, be sure to go there a little earlier to get a good spot as it can get very crowded especially on weekends.
