The world's most futuristic and cosmopolitan city, with a skyline that towers over the Arabian Desert and contains the largest dancing fountain, the tallest skyscraper, biggest artificial island and natural flower garden, and the world's only 7-star hotel, Dubai is among the richest and most outrageous locations in existence. With more than ten million visitors coming to Dubai annually, attracted by the amazing shopping and nightlife opportunities, experiencing the city's old culture and learning of its long history and heritage is also a big draw. Outside the urban expanse are old forts, simple villages and miles of dunes waiting to be explored. Rent a dune buggy or find a camel driver and, speaking of camels, check out a race at the Camel Race Track while you are there. On the whole, it's difficult to sum up the Dubai experience quickly. In short, if you are looking for an ancient site with a long and distinct culture, that also offers the absolute best in all modern conveniences and attractions, there is little need to look much further.
The Dubai Mall - More like a city than a shopping centre, the Mall boast 1200 shops, 150 restaurants and eateries, an ice rink, an aquarium, indoor theme parks and a dinosaur skeleton. With world-renowned names like Bloomingdale's, Hamley's and Galeries Lafayette lined up alongside, Ralph Lauren, Christian Dior and Rolls Royce, there's plenty to be impressed by.
Al Fahidi Historical District - Step back almost 100 years into the maze of quiet streets in the Bastakia Quarter, where a glimpse at a more relaxed period of Dubai's history is possible. The Sand coloured stone buildings have been fully restored, and now contain craft shops, cafés, art galleries, and a boutique hotel.
Wild Wadi Water Park - Near the Jumeirah Beach Hotel is the Wild Wadi Water Park, that cleverly interconnects more than twelve water slides through its arena, to follow the story of Juha and Sinbad the Sailor after they get shipwrecked together. While the park includes shallow pools and gentle rides for younger children, there is also the 110 foot high Jumeirah Sceirah Slide that allows brave riders to reach speeds of more than 50 mph.
