This absorbing city of the United Arab Emirates shows its distinction between rich and poor at the highest. The big oil industry is the reason for its quick expansion. The endless high buildings in the middle of the desert are impressive. You quickly figure out that the amount of money to realize something is irrelevant. An example is the highest tower in the World, the “Burj Khalifa”, 828 meters high. You cannot leave this city without having been on the top of this tower. I recommend you to buy the tickets at least 1 month in advance because most of the time it is fully booked. You can purchase the tickets online and make sure that you enter the building 1 hour before sunset, so you will see the day and night skyline of Dubai.
The #Dubai Mall biggest Mall in the World and the #Mall of The Emirates are a unique experience, too. While the Dubai Mall is famous for the largest acrylic aquarium panel, the Mall of The Emirates is popular for its indoor skiing.
A awesome place to spend a great evening is the 360° Bar Dubai located close to the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and situated in the middle of the sea. You can enjoy great cocktails while having an amazing sighting.
In order to see the other face of Dubai I recommend you to visit the old city Deira where you also find excellent, traditional and cheap restaurants. The “Aroos Damascus” restaurant is a unique experience. Most visitors are local people and you get plenty of delicious food for a very reasonable price.
#Dubai is a perfect city to visit for a couple of days and as there are many international flights that pass through Dubai make sure that you book a stopover ticket also if you fly to another destination. You will not regret.
