Well, there are literally so many places to visit in Dubai that even 10-15 days may not be enough to visit each and every place. On top of that, the areas are so big that you will require at least a few hours at each place. In this article, I will say about the main places which are not to be missed while at Dubai. This list is just my personal recommendation.

So, let's start


Burj Khalifa
Burj Khalifa

Well, the iconic Burj Khalifa does not require any mention to anyone. It is the tallest building in the world till now with a height of about 830 metres, just short of 170 metres for being 1 km. The height is so much that there is a 15 Degrees Celsius difference between the ground and top of the Burj Khalifa. The construction of this building started in 6th January 2004 and it was opened to the public on 4th January 2010.

You can have a photoshoot beneath the Burj Khalifa for free. The area near the Burj Khalifa is very big, with the Dubai Mall and Dubai fountain in close proximity. However, if you wish to go to the top, you have to pay money. The view from the top is just awesome. Make sure to go in the evening time to see the city in it's full glory.

The Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo is located here. Also Burj Khalifa can be accessed through the mall. All brands starting from basic affordable ones to ultra luxury brands are available here.
