Dubai is a thriving metropolis with top-class attractions. With the city stretching 25 miles along the coast, you will be amazed by their sheer accessibility. Taxis are not only cheap but plentiful and with a reliable metro, it can be easy to get around.
You should note that Dubai is a Muslim country and you should respect this fact. Though alcohol is available, you shouldn’t be found staggering in the streets. The weather can also get extremely hot but you have no reason to wear next to nothing in public places such as shopping malls. When you act respectfully, you will also be treated with kindness as you enjoy this nearly crime-free environment.
You can enjoy Dubai holiday packages from a price of £500. These packages include a 3 nights/4 days accommodation, inclusive of breakfast and all applicable tax, meet & greet service at the airport, dhow cruises, half day tour of Dubai city with a visit to Dubai museum and desert safari. There are also cheaper packages for people traveling on a budget.
Top 6 things/places
The Buri Khalifa
It is almost impossible to miss the tallest structure on earth when you arrive in Dubai. One thing that you shouldn’t miss is viewing the city from the 134th floor. Whether during the day or night, the view is just spectacular.
The Dubai mall
An activity that you cannot afford to miss in Dubai is shopping. You got to see this more so as to believe it. The eating and shopping appears like a side attraction. Some of the amazing features of the mall include an indoor theme park known as Sega World, 22-screen cinema, children’s world called Kidzania, and an aquarium that has an underwater zoo.

Skiing at the Mall of the Emirates
Nothing offers a truly great ski experience like skiing in the Ski Dubai located in the Mall of the Emirates. The longest run is about 1,300 feet and you can hire all the ski gears necessary. The lockers are also more than you need.
The lost city
You will witness an island that was created from nothing with the building of Palm Jumeirah. With the Atlantis hotel sitting on top of it, nothing makes such a spectacular landmark. A water-park known as Aquaventure is also among the attractions. Here you get up close with dolphins and for kids, there is a play area.
With weekends starting on Thursday in Dubai, a common tradition for restaurants is to offer an all-you-can-eat-and-drink brunch every Friday during Lunchtime. Different establishments battle in putting up the most attractive array of beverages and dishes.
