Dubai city tours offers a visit to the second largest Emirate of the UAE. Dubai is the region's leading travel destination because of its combination of traditional and modern features. Visitors are drawn to the beautiful focal point of the city, the Dubai creek; natural inlet in the Arabian gulf that divides into two parts (Deira - north, Bur Dubai - South).
Standing at a mind-boggling 800 meters, Burj Khalifa is the world's tallest building. This pyramid-shaped skyscraper is a key attraction in Dubai. Another iconic symbol of Dubai is the Burj Al Arab, a sail-shaped five star hotel built on an artificial island. Many people count Palm Island as the eighth wonder of the world. Built in the shape of a palm tree with a trunk, with a crown with fronds and surrounded by a beautiful crescent island that acts as a breakwater, this is truly a sight to behold.
Home to many leading sporting events of the world, Dubai is home the world's richest horse race, the Dubai World Cup. Dubai also plays host to the Dubai Tennis Championships and The Class 1 World Offshore Powerboat Championship.
As the 'shopping capital' of the Middle East, Dubai has 70 shopping malls, including the world's largest mall- The Dubai Mall. In addition, for an authentic taste of city life, you should visit Gold Souk, a traditional market selling pearls, gem-encrusted ornaments and gold jewellery.
Dubai has beautiful beach parks just waiting to be explored. The most exquisite of all is the Jumeirah Beach Park. From soaking up the sun in protected swimming areas with lifeguards, to open picnic and barbecue areas, this park has it all. Another park, Al Mamzar, has children's playgrounds, and sun lounges, towels and umbrellas are able to be hired on the beach.
