Dubai, located in the Middle East, is home to some of the most luxurious and stunning tourist destinations in the world. Let’s take a look at Dubai’s most popular tourist places: The Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world), Mall of The Emirates, and The Atlantis Hotel (an underwater hotel that never closes). You won’t want to miss these places when you visit Dubai!
Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo
This place is a must visit for all Dubai tourist places. It is on the Sheikh Zayed Road next to Burj Khalifa (Dubai’s tallest building). This underwater zoo/aquarium is one of Dubai’s most popular attractions as it has some of Dubai’s most endangered marine species. It is claimed to be one of the best aquariums in Asia.
The Dubai Frame is a 65m-tall sculpture located on Zabeel Park. The structure is made of steel pipes coated with titanium dioxide to create a golden hue. It was designed by architect Fernando Donis and built by South Korea’s Eum Construction & Engineering Group. The frames of Zabeel Park can be seen from anywhere in Dubai, which makes it a prime location for photographers. Moreover, Visitors will also find cafes and shops inside of the park’s frame.
Dubai is home to the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa. At 829m high, it was an engineering marvel when completed in 2010. It stands at a height greater than that of Paris’s Eiffel Tower or New York’s Empire State Building. To go up to the observation deck on the 124th floor, you need to take one of two elevators (that reach speeds of 22 mph) up 1,811 feet. Once there, you can see Dubai like never before with incredible views spanning across miles and miles into neighboring countries. The view from above is breathtaking but if you want something even more spectacular then head out on one of many Dubai Helicopter Tours available.
The best tourist places in Dubai are its futuristic city, beauty and charm!
The first of three planned reclamation projects (the others being Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira), Palm Jumeirah is a palm-shaped artificial island extending from Dubai’s coastline into the Persian Gulf. This palm-shaped man made island has over 25 km of private beachfront. It was built by Nakheel as part of a major re-development of Dubai’s coastline to diversify away from an oil economy.
Dubai’s Atlantis Hotel is one of its most iconic tourist spots. From water parks to underwater suites, there are tons of things to do at Atlantis that are ideal for families or friends on vacation. In addition to these attractions, a spa experience awaits guests at Anatasia & Massage at Azur Elegance Spa.
