Dubai Tourism & Travel Guide

Often christened as the Pearl of the Gulf, Dubai concocts adventures for every kind of tourist. This is the city where glossy locales peppered with dazzling malls meets the the Bedouin life across the magnificent desert dunes. Start with an understanding of the emirate’s history at the Dubai Museum in the historic Al Fahidi Fort. Hop onto an abra (boat) and visit the Deira side of the Dubai creek for its bustling bazaars. Dubai’s tourism can be credited to the city’s Spice Souk, that is brimming with an assortment of spices, teas, dry fruits and flowers. If you are in the lookout for a local breakfast (especially, the falafels) by the beach, the sandy Jumeirah Beach is your best bet. Visit the Burj Khalifa to witness the magnificent view of the city, particularly after sundown. For that mandatory shopping spree, the glitzy Dubai Mall in the downtown section of the city should be the next stop in your Dubai tour. You can get all your Arab souvenirs from here. Downtown Dubai is also one of the most popular places to visit in the city primarily because of the al fresco dining scene, that boasts of some of the best baba ganoush and flatbread you have ever tasted. And as no Dubai trip is complete without a Desert Safari, book yourself a package that has it all - dune bashing, camel-riding, belly dancing, and a flavoursome dinner of kebabs.

1 Emaar Boulevard, Downtown, Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, 1, Dubai
Burj Khalifa is spectacular at night. It is the highest towers in the world right next to the Dubai Mall. If you are lucky you can catch the last show of the musical fountains at the Dubai Mall - they are spectacular. Dubai Mall in itself is huge with an inbuilt aquarium!. But for me the lights and splendor of Burj Khalifa at night stole the show.

You cannot go to Dubai and NOT see the biggest mall in the world, right?

Weekend Getaways from Dubai  

We had to get ready by 9 in morning. After a hot water bath, I was all set for the breakfast till 8:30 a.m. The sun strokes were high as usual. The buffet had its cuisine ready for the morning breakfast. Our cab arrived by 9 and we were all set to leave. We had a city tour to Abu Dhabi. The view of the buildings standing tall, blocked the sun rays to fall on roads. United Arab Emirates (UAE) has 7 states. An amazing thing about travelling through all 7 states is that you get to discover difference in the color of roads in all 7 states. When we reached Abu Dhabi, the color of the road was slightly green. We saw all the palaces where the prince of the UAE and his wives resided, famous hotels, dockyards and harbors. The import/export plays a very important role in a deserted place. We also saw the World Trade Center (where the Fast and Furious series was shot).
