It is obvious that when someone goes to Dubai, they will surely visit the tallest building in the world. But here, I'm talking about going at the top of Burj Khalifa & not only looking at it from the outside. It is a nee level experience. It is 830 m tall to the tip. There are 163 floors & the highest outdoor observation deck of the world is the 124th floor. The view from the top is incredible. Totally worth experiencing. The elevators of the Burj reach the observation deck in about a minute, that is lesser than the time taken in the queue to reach the elevator. Also, there is a virtual reality experience that stimulates the real feel of scaling 160 habitable floors. There are swings and few souvenir stalls which have pretty amazing stuff.

If you get an opportunity, desert safari should be experienced once. The vehicle comes to your doorstep to pick you up for this adventure, you will have to book it through an agency / company providing the services. On the way we saw Miracle Garden, Global Village and the Sheikh's lavish house. We then halted for near a shop for refreshments and the vehicle is then made ready to be driven in the desert. Maximum 6 tourists can be accomodated in one vehicle. Then we start with dune bashing, which is very bumpy (ofcourse), scary, thrilling ride. We then stop at a place for sand surfing. It is an exciting activity which could be done by anyone, it only required basic balancing skill / ability. After that we continue towards quad biking zone. There we are given quad bikes and a limited area to ride it. It was fun but then it get monotonous at a point. There is also an option that one could take ride on the dunes which I believe was pretty dangerous and required the rider to have some experience in biking. After that we are taken to a base where there are various performances lined up for tourists like their traditonal dance, belly dance and fire act. There are stalls where one could wear their traditional attire, one could get henna applied by professionals, dinner arrangements too. Outside the base there is a camel ride option too. Tents were set up for the ones willing to experience the night time in the desert. Others are dropped back to their destination after having dinner.

La Mer welcomes you with a beautiful quote " The wind in my hair. The sand in my toes. " It is a beautiful beach-front with a lot of artistic graffiti walls and various restaurants. We can see the Burj and the Dubai Skyline from the beach. One could have laid back days to chill evenings to glamourous nights all at La Mer. There are alot of quirky street art with alot of restaurants to choose from. Totally worth visiting this new hot tourist as well as local attraction when in Dubai.

This new addition to the Dubai's already impressive Skyline was made in January'18. It gives an amazing panoramic view from a height of 150m. Frame provides 2 very different perspective of the city. To the north one can see the Old Dubai and to the south one can view new Dubai. From Deira's old town to the high rises of Dubai Marina, it is all visible from the Frame's 360 degree point. It also gives an opportunity to the tourists to step onto the crystal clear glass & walking on it with a drop of 150m visible just beneath their feet. Also there is a vortex tunnel which gives tourists an idea of expert's predictions of the city's future growth.

It is the world's largest indoor virtual reality park. It is a whole different world inside. For the ones who love gaming will surely enjoy it to their max and for the ones new to this (like me) will be stunned but will have alot of new experiences. From the arcade games to the roller coasters all give you very different feeling. Some are team games & some are solo. It features VR landscapes across all genres - adrenaline, horror, leisure & much more. It was an exhilarating experience. If you go to Dubai Mall you should definately visit it.
