UAE Top 5 Your guide to exploring the best of Dubai

The Middle East is becoming an increasingly popular stopover destination for travelers. The Arabian delights of Dubai include long sandy beaches reaching down to the clear blue waters of the Arabian Gulf, superb shopping malls and souks, championship golf courses, and spectacular desert and mountain landscapes. Dubai has become the ultimate tourist destination of the Middle East. It is a place of striking contrasts, where modern sophistication comes together in a fascinating blend of old and new, where East meets West. The emirate of Dubai is synonymous with the word humongous, as it continues to construct the world’s largest buildings.

Burj Khalifa

The world's tallest building, located in downtown Dubai, has 2 observation points, on the 124th and 148th deck. The building first opened in January 2010, at a height of 828m. In most Tours for the World packages, a visit to Burj Khalifa is included, and you don’t need to worry about scheduling your visit in advance.

Burj Al Arab

The Burj's graceful silhouette – meant to evoke the sail of a dhow – is the landmark of Dubai. The building opened in 1999 and is located on the artificial island of Jumeirah. A visit to both the inside and outside of the building is highly recommended for all Dubai visitors.

4X4 Desert Safari

Visiting Dubai without seeing the desert would be an incomplete experience. Get the full safari adventure with desert dune driving, a camel ride, and finish with a delicious BBQ and Bellydance or Tandora show.

Dubai Dhow Cruise Creek

Enjoy a dinner cruise on a wonderful wooden dhow ─ built in the time-honored manner but with every comfort, and a buffet dinner with unlimited soft drinks. Don’t miss the Tandora show.

Dubai Mall

A world famous tax-free mall for shopping. The entrance is by the Burj Khalifa, and an aquarium is located at the same facility. In this mall, visitors have many entertainment options.
