Burj Al Arab is renowned for its iconic shape and for being one of the world’s most luxurious hotels. It’s actually rated as a 7-star hotel! It’s so luxurious that guests are even given a menu to pick out what type of pillow they would like.

5. Heritage & Cultural

The best way to get to know Dubai is by delving into the city's rich history and Immersing yourself in the various cultural activities. Dubai creek is a rich historical site and is a must see. Dating back to 1830 and traditionally used as a channel of transporting goods, it is said to have transformed Dubai. Once a small fishing village, Dubai has evolved into the modern city it is today, leading the way in revolutionary architecture. So why not trace Dubai’s very existence back to its roots, take a trip down the creek on a traditional Abra boat and visit the spice, gold, perfume and textile markets located close to the creek. On a visit to the spice souk you’ll be introduced to the fragrant herbs and spices; you’ll meet the merchants and get plenty of ideas for new recipes.

It also goes without saying that a trip to Dubai would not be complete without embarking on a camel safari through the desert.
