If you are still not convinced that Dubai is the city you should be visiting for your next holiday, we have put together list of five reasons why you should book your plane tickets right now:
Shop Until You Drop
Dubai is home to some of the largest and most luxurious shopping malls in the world, each of which house design brand clothing, high-tech gadgets and much more
However, there is much more to Dubai’s shopping scene than its malls, as the city is home to a number of souks (traditional Arabic markets) that sell a variety of goods.
The most popular souk, arguably, has to be the Gold Souk, a glittering market that sells all things gold from trinkets to jewellery and Arabic designed goods.
The great part about souks, however, is that shoppers have the opportunity to barter with sellers and, if they barter well enough, there is the opportunity to buy their wanted products at much cheaper prices.
Other souks include the Perfume Souk, Textile Souk and the Spice Souk.
Attractions for All Ages
Dubai has a vast selection of attractions, most of which are family-friendly and can be enjoyed by an array of ages.
One of the most popular family-friendly attractions is LEGOLAND Dubai, a brand-new Dubai theme park that opened its doors only last month.
LEGOLAND Dubai is separated into six different lands, each with a selection of fun rides and attractions that the whole family can enjoy.
Another attraction for all ages is SEGA Republic, an indoor theme park that is the ideal indoor location to spend time playing a selection of fun games and enjoying a variety of rides with your friends or family.
Luxurious and Unique Accommodation Options
Dubai, being the modern and luxurious city that it is, has a selection of amazing accommodation options housed in selected hotels across the city.
One of these amazing hotels is Atlantis, The Palm’s Underwater Suites. For guests who choose to stay in one of these unique and breath-taking suites, have the opportunity to wake up to beautiful views of the ancient ruins of the mythical lost city of Atlantis and its 65 000 stunning marine animals – some of which include rays and a variety of colourful fish.
One of a Kind Experiences
Some of Dubai’s experiences cannot be repeated anywhere else in the world. A couple of one of a kind experiences you can experience while in the city, include:
- Seeing the breath-taking view from the tallest building in the world, The Burj Khalifa. Travellers have the opportunity to take the fastest elevator in the world to one of two viewing decks where they can take in a view like nothing they will see ever again.
- Bungee jumping off a crane with Gravity Zone. Travellers who are brave enough can leap off the platform of a crane and fall towards the ground in a unique, city-styled bungee jumping experience.
