Admire the impressive skyline

You might not think so, but Dubai was once a humble little fishing village. In recent years, however, the city has developed into a vibrant metropolis. For instance, Dubai is home to one of the tallest buildings in the world, the Burj Khalifa. From the top, you can enjoy a staggering panoramic view of the city that includes the high-rise structures in the Dubai Marina district, the luxury hotels and the world-famous palm-tree-shaped island, Palm Jumeirah.

Shopping in retail paradise Dubai

Calling all shopaholics! In Dubai, you can shop to your heart’s content in the world’s largest indoor shopping centre, the Dubai Mall. Here, you’ll find all the well-known brands at reasonably sharp prices. The Dubai Mall is so large that one day is simply not enough to see it all! But Dubai Mall has more to offer than just shops. You can also relax and enjoy one of the many bars, cafés and restaurants. Or allow yourself to be astonished by the largest aquarium in the world, which houses more than 30,000 sea creatures.

"Impressive buildings and shopping centres, but also beaches and traditional Arabic culture: you’ll find it all in Dubai."

Discover Arabic culture

Curious about what Dubai was like when it was still just a small village? Learn about its history in the Dubai Museum and stop by Al Bastakiya, a picturesque neighbourhood filled with old houses and streets. Here, you can get a taste of how people lived in Dubai in the past. Or visit Medinat Jumeirah, a kind of village within Dubai itself. It’s a bit like Venice – but with an Arabic twist. Stroll around and see the sights, take a boat ride and grab a bite to eat at one of the charming restaurants.
