10 Unbelievable reasons to visit Dubai

By Cian Guckian

Dubai is the all-in-one holiday destination that provides once-in-a-lifetime memories.  Where else can you play on the beach in the morning, go skiing or snowboarding at lunchtime, explore the desert in the afternoon and then, in the evening, watch dancing fountains reach to the skies underneath the world’s tallest tower? Whether you’re on a family holiday or with your loved one or friends, Dubai is the place for you. Here are ten reasons why you need to visit Dubai now.

Visit the world’s Tallest Building

Reaching a tremendous 828 metres into the sky above downtown Dubai, the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building is not to be missed. Have cameras at the ready. On level 124, you will find the At the Top visitor centre. Here visitors will be able to enjoy sweeping vistas of Dubai. As it is one of the city’s most famous attractions, I would advise you to get here as early as you can as queues are common and you will be expected to wait. After being blown away by the killer views - just two levels down you will be thrilled by the world’s highest restaurant where delicious cuisine and unbelievable views go hand in hand.

Shopping

Dubai is the home to dozens of exceptional malls, the most famous of them being the Dubai Mall with over 1,200 shops, the world's largest. From Armani and Chanel, it is a shopaholic’s paradise but it also features KidZania, the Dubai Aquarium, and an indoor ski. Dubai Fountain is another major draw – located directly outside it displays world class water shows.

Explore the Souks

 A trip to Dubai isn’t complete without visiting a souk. You are guaranteed to find everything from carpets, textiles, jewellery, gold, food and spices - you name it they have it. The fish souk is definitely worth exploring.  Entering the Fish Souk you’ll be confronted by perhaps less palatable aromas. Yet a visit to this thriving and chaotic market is an enlightening experience and a throwback to when the waters of The Gulf were the lifeblood for Dubai back in the days when it was little more than a fishing village itself. Visit early in the morning or last thing to see the catch being unloaded from the dhows and boats from the nearby Creek and marvel at the sheer variety of seafood on display. But be warned – the Fish Souk is not for the faint hearted, as you’ll be confronted by fishermen gutting and cutting their catch. This results in not only a pungent smell but also a lot of mess – dress appropriately. The authentic souk experience is one that continues to amaze tourists. The varieties of products offered at souks are endless and shoppers can find different clothes, shoes, accessories, textiles, home appliances, carpets, gold, toys and furniture. In the tiny lanes of the Spice Souk in Old Dubai, the atmosphere and the scents of the past can be savoured. Bags of spices, incense, rose petals and traditional medicinal products are stacked outside each stall. Along the slightly larger lanes of the Gold Souk, each shop window is crammed with gold necklaces, rings, bangles, earrings and brooches. In other small streets, the visitor can find shops selling shishas and coffee pots, and nearby tea stalls.
 

 Old Dubai and Dubai Museum

For a more historic Dubai experience, you can wander unaided through the Old District of Al Fahidi. Exploring narrow lanes, you will discover traditional Gulf houses which are made of gypsum and coral stone with their large courtyards and tall wind towers.

End your leisurely stroll at the Dubai Museum where you will discover the 1787 Al Fahidi Fort and contains 4000-year-old archaeological exhibits.

 Mosques

Jumeirah Mosque is Dubai's largest mosque and one of a small number that non-Muslims are able to visit. It is built in the medieval Fatimid tradition and its interior is decorated with elaborate Arabic calligraphy. An after-dark visit is also an option when the mosque is lit up by floodlights.

As usual, conservative dress is required especially for women - including a head scarf. A stop at the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding first is required, not only to learn about what you are visiting but because you must have a registered guide with you.

 Desert Adventures

Dubai’s desert safaris are very popular excursions and are another sure way to get the adrenaline going.  Visitors are collected from their hotel and taken to the desert for an exciting 4x4 drive over mountainous sand dunes, under the expertise of a desert guide.  Make sure to book a tour that includes sand-boarding and camel riding for an extra thrill, followed by entertainment and dining as the sun sets. Desert safaris are available as half and full-day excursions.   An evening safari is a great way to experience some top class star-gazing as well. Other desert adventures include hot air balloon rides, sand-skiing and quad biking. 

Beaches and Activities

It’s on Dubai’s beaches that the world meets – its over 11 million visitors a year combined with its residents of over 200 nationalities. It’s here that beach games are won, the sand castles are built, the bodies are tanned, the picnics are eaten and the watersports are played.

Many of the beaches are attached to the beachside resorts – allowing guests to enjoy the sands while lazing on the hotel cushioned loungers, tapping into the waiter service and using the hotel’s fluffy beach towels.  Even if you’re not staying at the hotel, treating yourself to a day’s membership is the ideal solution.

 For a beach spot that’s at the heart of the action, head to The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence. This beach has the benefit of being fringed by a promenade of restaurants, boutiques, markets, The Beach Mall and even an outdoor cinema. It’s the perfect spot for people watching. The warm waters of the Arabian Gulf, year-round sunshine and glorious sandy beaches are the perfect ingredients for all watersport lovers and beach babes.  Dubai has plenty of watersports on offer.  At Jumeirah Beach, Dukite offers afternoon classes in kite-surfing.  Or SeaYou give guided kayak tours around the Palm Jumeirah or you can paddle board around the iconic Burj Al Arab from Sunset Beach.

Dubai has many kilometres of coastline boasting white sandy beaches and sparkling clear water. With hot temperatures and high sunshine hours, the beach is always a good idea. The coastal hotels have private beaches and most also offer water sports.

Art

In recent years Dubai has become a focal point for contemporary Arabic and Persian art. Dubai’s small art district, in the Al-Quoz area, is home to cutting-edge galleries including Gallery Isabelle van den Eynd, Third Line and Meem Gallery. In the Al Fahidi historical district, you’ll find beautiful examples of traditional Arabian arts at the excellent XVA Gallery, with a courtyard cafe, and Majlis Gallery with sculptures, ceramics, glass and furniture.

Cross Dubai Creek

Take a traditional wooden abra boat along Dubai Creek. Enjoy beautiful sky views of the low-rise skyline dominated by mosques and authentic Arabian architecture. Alight in the fragrant heat of the spice souk and haggle like a local over rose tea and saffron sold from hessian sacks, before heading into gold souk.

Unbelievable Architecture

The architecture on show in Dubai is sure to blow your mind. Rising up from the desert, the sky scraping towers in Dubai are spectacular, each one trying to outdo the others. Throughout your travels you are guaranteed to discover that in Dubai there is no such thing as a simple tower block. Every building is known for its bling and the wow factor. Even Dubai’s metro stations are uber stylish.

Visitors to Dubai are in for a treat as it is home to a host of spectacular hotels which are perfect for couples and families alike. Located in the heart of Dubai the 5* Movenpick Hotel Deira has everything that you would expect from a 5* hotel. Be treated like royalty for the duration of your stay and be just a short hop away from the city’s amazing sights including the Gold and Spice Souks.  Experience Dubai by staying at the acclaimed 4* Al Jawhara Gardens in Port Saaed which is famous for its Arabic architecture and which also features an outdoor and indoor swimming pool and a swanky cocktail lounge as well as being in a prime location minutes from Dubai’s major sights or the 5* Jumeirah Creekside is a hotel like no other. Overlooking Dubai Creek, this luxurious hotel is a perfect choice for shopaholics and sight seekers alike as some of Dubai’s most important shopping centres and top landmarks are all within a short distance away and with complimentary access to the Wild Wadi Waterpark, what’s not to like.
