As a result of its meteoric rise from a remote desert emirate to one of the world’s leading global cities in the space of a single generation, Dubai has emerged as an increasingly popular travel destination. You’ll find authentic souks in close proximity to the world’s tallest building here, as well as man-made islands that are home to some of the most luxurious hotels found anywhere on the planet, as well as sunshine all year round and activities that are appropriate for the whole family.
Today we are going to talk about top 10 best places to visit in Dubai.

10. Dubai Creek.
The city of Dubai is divided into Deira to the north and Bur Dubai to the south by Dubai Creek, which has been an important part of Dubai’s history as well as its modern development. The creek, in many respects the location where it all started, is an excellent place to get a sense of the traditional atmosphere that prevails throughout Dubai. Visit the dhow wharf, which is located to the north of the Al-Maktoum Bridge, to see vessels that are as much as a century old and which continue to serve as a vital means of transportation for small traders from all over the region. If you’re lucky, you might even be invited aboard one of these boats. There are a number of buildings that are worth mentioning, the most notable of which are the Deira Twin Towers and the National Bank. In the vicinity of these buildings is Dubai Creek Park, which is one of the largest parks in the Emirate and is an excellent location for a laid-back picnic with old and new friends. You can get a taste, albeit a fleeting one, of life aboard a dhow by going on a cruise along the creek and taking in the sights of the historic trading port while you do so.
9. The Dubai Fountain.
Exploring the heights of the Burj Khalifa, going shopping at the Dubai Mall, and then watching the spectacular water displays of the Dubai Fountain are three of the best things to do in Dubai, and they can all be done in the same day. In the largest choreographed display of its kind, the illuminated jets move in time to popular musical numbers from around the world. It’s an amazing sight to see jets flying as high as 450 feet (150 metres) in the air. The shows take place at 1 and 1:30 p.m. every day, with the exception of Friday, when they take place at 1:30 and 2 p.m., and then again at the top of every half-hour from sunset until 11 p.m.
Bastakiya, which is also known as Old Dubai, is a district that is rich in Emirati history and culture. In the latter part of the nineteenth century, a neighbourhood was established along Dubai Creek. The area’s narrow lanes are packed full of elegant period buildings, many of which boast wind towers that help keep these buildings cool during the summer heat. The majority of these buildings have remained largely unchanged since then. The Bastakia is also developing into a hub for the arts; if you go, be sure to check out the Majlis Gallery for traditional Arab furniture and ceramics as well as the XVA Gallery for contemporary artwork.
7. Dubai Museum.
This is the most important museum in Dubai and the most popular cultural attraction in all of Dubai. It is housed in the breathtaking sand-colored Al-Fahidi Fort, which was constructed in the late 1700s to defend Dubai Creek. There is a fascinating exhibition of maps showing how Dubai has changed over the years, as well as a courtyard full of traditionally constructed boats, located within the centuries-old design, which is comprised, among other things, of coral stone, palms, and wooden supports, among other materials. The Dubai Museum is the best option for gaining both a historical and contemporary understanding of Emirati culture and lifestyle.
6. Dubai Mall.
People travel from all over the world to visit Dubai Mall because it is more than just a means of accessing the Burj Khalifa or gazing at the underwater world of the Dubai Aquarium. Dubai Mall is also known for its fashionable stores. If you get tired of shopping here (there are more than 1200 shops), there is a vast selection of restaurants, an ice rink, a gaming zone, and a movie theatre for you to enjoy. Shopping opportunities here are easily described as being endless. It is highly recommended that you keep an eye out for the regular live events that are held at Dubai Mall. Some examples of these events include fashion shows and music concerts.
5. Burj Al-Arab.
The Burj Al-Arab may not be able to compete with the dizzying heights of the Burj Khalifa, but it does boast the title of being the tallest hotel in the world thanks to its elevation of 321 metres. The architecture of this building, which is situated on its own devoted island, is reminiscent of the form of a traditional dhow that is sailing at full mast. Dhows are a type of merchant ship that have been traversing the waters around the emirate for centuries. When night falls, the exterior is illuminated in a rainbow of colours, creating a mesmerising effect. Visits to the Skyview Bar on the 27th floor of the Burj are a more cost-effective way to experience the hotel than staying in one of its most luxurious suites, which can cost as much as USD 15,000 per night.
4. Dubai Frame.
The breathtaking skyline of Dubai can be seen from a variety of vantage points, but it is possible that Dubai Frame is the only location in the emirate that provides an expansive view of Dubai’s historical and contemporary landscapes. The narratives of Dubai’s history, the splendours of Dubai’s present, and the visions of Dubai’s future are all shared with visitors at Zabeel Park, which features the largest frame in the world as part of its landscape design.
3. The Palm Jumeirah.
The Palm Jumeirah is a man-made island in the shape of a palm tree that is home to many of Dubai’s most luxurious hotels, including the world-famous Atlantis. This enormous hotel is also home to a waterpark known as Aquaventure, which features the longest water slide in the world as well as another water slide that drops nine stories. In addition, there is a large section of child-friendly sand and the opportunity to participate in an underwater safari while wearing sea trek helmets. Because of the monorail system that travels the length of the palm’s “trunk,” it is very simple to visit the attraction at any time of the year.
2. Dubai Aquarium.
Another attraction in Dubai that should not be missed is the Dubai Aquarium, which is home to more than one hundred and forty distinct species of fish and other marine life. The main tank has a capacity of 10 million litres of water, and it is home to the world’s largest collection of sand tiger sharks in addition to hundreds of other species of sharks and rays. Although it is possible to view the main massive tank (which is large enough for glass-bottomed boat tours on its surface) from within the Dubai Mall itself, nothing quite compares to the thrill of heading “into” the tank yourself by entering the 148-meter-long walk-through tunnel. The Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo is located on the ground floor of the Dubai Mall. Both shark diving and cage snorkelling are available for those who have a need for speed and excitement.
1. Burj Khalifa.
A trip to Dubai that does not include a stop at the structure that has become more closely associated with the city than any other structure is lacking something important. The Burj Khalifa, which rises to an almost unbelievable height of 829.8 metres and is the world’s tallest freestanding structure, is not something that should be missed. At the ‘at the top’ observation deck on the 124th floor, visitors can take in panoramic views that are nothing short of breathtaking. The deck also features a multimedia experience that describes some of the challenges that were overcome during the enormous construction project. Also, make sure that you don’t forget to check out the stunning gardens that surround the tower on the ground level.
