The best things to do in Dubai



As the city was established as an international shopping destination, the malls are one of the essential
things to see in Dubai,
and there are more than seventy in the city. The most famous are the Dubai Mall, the largest in the world, the Mall of Emirates, known for its indoor ski slope, the Ibn Battuta Mall, and Marinat Jumeirah Souk, one of the city's most interesting souks for its traditional design. But those looking for authentic souks should also visit the Gold Souk (with over three hundred jewelers), Bur Dubai Souk and Spice Souk.

Dubai is a city in constant growth, and its architectural wonders are some of the top places to visit in Dubai. The best architectural attractions in Dubai are
the Burj Al Arab, an icon of the city due to its sail shape and luxurious accommodations, the Burj Khalifa skyscraper (at 828 meters, it's the tallest on the planet), and Palm Islands, an archipelago of artificial islands.

Enjoying one of the city's many beaches is another of the top things to do in Dubai.
Divided between private (hotel-owned) and public, the most popular beaches are the Al Mamzar Beach Park, considered the best beach in Dubai, Jumeirah Beach Park, which is closest to the city, Umm Sugeim Beach next to the emblematic Burj Al Arab, and Open Beach.

Both children and teenagers alike will find lots of
stuff to do in Dubai,
such as the Wild Wadi water park and Aquaventure Water Park, or Ferrari World, a theme park based on the mythical Italian firm located on Yas Island.
