What you can find in this post
When someone wants to talk about civilization, evolution and advantages, it should mention Burj Khalifa. The Burj Khalifa was initially referred to Burj Dubai when development was not completed yet. Its design & height was held in the strictest confidence so that adjustments could be made to the design if required. The Burj Khalifa designed by Adrian Smith and then by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM), who also designed Willis Tower and World Trade Center 1.
With more than 800 meters height, Burj Khalifa t is the tallest skyscraper in the world until now. Standing at the building base and looking up at its vertical area is an experience in itself. However, the best way to experience the Burj Khalifa is to go to the observation deck (At The Top) and see what the world appears like from the highest deck in the world. Inside the tower, you will find residential apartments, hotel rooms, business offices, shopping areas, entertainment centers, restaurants and cafes, gyms, observation decks and swimming pools. The main structure is reinforced concrete. General pass for Levels 124 and 125 is 149 for adults.
Evening Desert Safari
This trip is an unforgettable desert adventure and is adored by most vacationers. And every time, arriving in the UAE, many travelers, having a little relaxation and making the required purchases, visit the desert on one of the good days. It often takes approximately one hour to get to the desert, with a stop at a shop. They can also bring them to a grocery store (it is advisable to take a bottle of water with you beforehand, and ideally two – to drink and wash, just in case). These shops are usually the collection point for all cars, as drivers pick up their passengers directly from the hotels.
Once you reach the desert, drivers flatten their tires – this is essential for driving on the sands, at which time tourists can take pictures. Also, professional photographers can take pictures in the desert, the album can then be redeemed. Evening Dubai Safari is the most popular safari tour and it starts in the afternoon and lasts till 9 :00 pm. This trip is suitable for everyone unless you’ve got back pain.

In case you’re searching for a place to capture some great pics with kids, visit it. The Dubai Frame is recognized as the biggest picture frame in the world. It is an iconic structure that ‘frames’ remarkable views of Old and New Dubai, while serving as a metaphorical bridge connecting the emirate’s rich past with its spectacular present.The future show at the exit gives a glimpse of the future of Dubai. The frame offers impressive breathtaking views across the city. The main attraction here is the interactive glass floors at the top from frosted turns clear as soon as you get on it. It’s also completely gold plated.
Kids entry ticket is DH 20 (3 to 5 years) while adult ticket price is DH 50. Those under three can go for free. Ticket prices seem surprisingly fair compared to the other places.
Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo is among the biggest hanging aquariums globally, with Ten million litres of water capability. A fantastic spot to check out with family and children. The aquarium houses over 30,000 aquatic animals, including over 400 sharks and rays. There are 83 spices of fishes in the massive aquarium and even more if you purchase the underwater zoo. From inside you will also get a 360 view of an aquarium with big sharks. This is one in a lifetime experience. All of the fishes, sharks, crabs etc. are so stunning. The most engaging part of this attraction is the Tunnel. Even though the tunnel is only around 10 meters, You will find around 10000 species live and well maintained. The boat ride is a very nice experience, which includes a tunnel ticket. You should purchase tickets from online portals, as you get better deals. I endorse you to spend half a day at least because if you are a nature lover.
Dubai is getting similar to English culture and embraces tourists; having said that, it’s still closed to conservative Islam. Do put on normal beach clothes at the hotel beach and swimming pool, but ladies, don’t go topless. If you visit a public beach, remember that as a woman, you’re certainly going to be looked at in your bikini. If you visit places like the Jumeirah Mosque or the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, then hide as much as can be a sign of regard.
