Dubai Diaries

Hello Everyone!

Today’s post is a special one, as it’s our first travel post. We love
to travel and explore new places, and not so long ago we planned a vacation to the city of gold ‘DUBAI’. Dubai is known for
luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture, lively nightlife scene and
dominating skyscraper-filled skyline. So here I present to you, Dubai,
from our eyes..!!


1) BURJ KHALIFA- No visit to Dubai is complete without a visit to the
top of the world’s tallest building. Even the journey upwards will
entertain and educate you as you watch a multimedia presentation
chronicling Dubai’s exotic history and the development of the Burj
Khalifa. After ascending 450 metres to the At the Top observation deck
in a high-speed lift, you’ll be greeted by breathtaking, unobstructed
360-degree views of the city, desert and ocean. You can also walk the
floor-to-ceiling glass-walled perimeter or step outside onto the
open-air terrace.

2) THE DUBAI FOUNTAIN- Have you ever seen water dance? You have the
chance every day at The Dubai Fountain, located at the base of the
Burj Khalifa. Featuring the world’s largest choreographed fountain
system, this popular son-et-lumière show jets up to 22,000 gallons of
water as high as 150 metres in the air at any one time. Each
colourful, illuminated jet sways in time to music, producing what has
become the most popular show in Dubai. The beam of light shining
upward from the fountain can be seen from more than 30 kilometres


3) WILD WADI WATERPARK- Located in the shadows of the iconic Burj Al
Arab, Wild Wadi Waterpark continues to offer gravity-defying thrills
and awesome spills. You can enjoy 30 rides and attractions, including
the Wipeout and Riptide Flowriders surfing experiences. At Tantrum
Alley, you’ll face three tornados and meet the eye of a storm, while
at Jumeirah Sceirah (redesigned in 2012) you’ll shoot down one of two
120-metre tandem slides at an astonishing speed of 80km/h.


4) BURJ AL ARAB- The hotel’s distinctive sail-shaped silhouette has
made it an iconic symbol of modern Dubai. Often voted the world’s most
luxurious hotel, the Burj Al Arab is one of the region’s most famous
tourist landmarks. Built on a triangular man-made island, the
billowing sail-like structure rises 321 metres above the sea and the
hotel’s atrium lobby is the tallest in the world. The Burj Al Arab
sets a new standard for hospitality superlatives, including an
underwater aquarium restaurant that you reach through a simulated
submarine voyage.


5) AQUARIUM AND UNDERWATER ZOO-The 10 million-litre tank at the Dubai
Aquarium is one of the largest in the world, containing more than
33,000 aquatic animals and the largest collection of sand tiger sharks
anywhere. Rising to the third floor of The Dubai Mall, the aquarium is
home to 70 species of sea life and has several ways to experience
underwater life, starting with a stroll through a 48-metre,
walk-through tunnel. It’s a complete fish-eye view, with sand tiger
sharks and stingrays swimming overhead. You can also take a
glass-bottom boat tour, get wet in a snorkelling cage and even don an
oxygen tank to go swimming with the sharks.


6) SKI DUBAI- Did you ever imagine you’d come to the desert to go
skiing? Ski Dubai in Mall of the Emirates is the first indoor ski
resort to open in the Middle East. You’ll discover 22,500 square
metres of snow spread over five runs of varying difficulty, from the
bunny slope to the black run, along with a freestyle area for
snowboarders and tobogganers. The 3,000-square-metre Snow Park is
great family fun, with snow caves, toboggan slopes and tube rides. The
alpine café is ideal for sipping hot chocolate in minus four degrees,
or watching the daily march of a colony of snow penguins.

7) SAFARI- A must for everyone who is visiting UAE. The tour departs
in the afternoon across the desert of Dubai with stops in between to
watch the beautiful sunset before reaching to the campsite where you
have the opportunity to do a camel ride, sand boarding and try out a
henna design on hand or feet. After working up an appetite enjoy a
delicious barbecue dinner and sheesha (the famous Arabic water pipe).
Before returning to Dubai watch the belly dancer performing
her show around the campfire by starlight.
