Things to Do, Cruise

Ramee Dhow Cruise: A Complete Arabian Experience Dubai makes a very pretty picture from the sea. In the evenings the sight of the illuminated city is particularly beautiful. Cruising the creek in one of the traditional dhows for a romantic evening experience by itself. Dhows are still built today in much the same fashion as they used to be generation ago.

Dubai Fountains

Dubai's landmark building is the Burj Khalifa, which at 829.8 m is the tallest building in the world. For most visitors a trip to the observation deck on the 124th floor here is a must-do while in the city. The views across the city skyline from this bird's-eye perspective are simply staggering. The slick observation deck experience includes a multi-media presentation on both Dubai and the building of the Burj Khalifa (completed in 2010) before a high-speed elevator whizzes you up to the observation deck for those 360-degree views out across the skyscrapers to the desert on one side and the ocean on the other. Night-time visits are particularly popular with photographers due to Dubai's famous city-lights panoramas. Buy your Burj Khalifa 'At the Top' Entrance Ticket in advance to avoid long line-ups.
