My Top Favorites to see in Dubai

Having lived in Dubai for over 2 years I have had a chance to explore some interesting places. Being a desert place the transformation of Dubai over the years has been spectacular

Tall structures, hi- end hotels, multinational cuisines, fun places for kids and shopping. Dubai is all about fun, food, and lifestyle.

From a pure business country, Dubai has become a family and affordable destination for many travelers. The best time to visit Dubai is from Nov-March.

Some of my Top Favorite spots are

  1. Dubai Creek:- You can take a dhow tour, ride the Abra (water taxi), do a dinner cruise on the Creek or simply walk along the side of the creek.

The best way to explore the Dubai Creek is by taking a one hour tour on an Arab dhow. While on the dhow, observe the beautiful and historic architecture that surrounds the Creek.

2. Burj Al Arab – Is one of the top Hi end hotels in Dubai and third tallest hotel in the world.
