Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene, including Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominating the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music.

For information on Dubai attractions, please contact our concierge experts:

Burj Khalifa & Dubai Fountain
Recognized as the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa rises gracefully from the desert at 2,716 ft, honouring Dubai with its extraordinary union of art, engineering and meticulous craftsmanship.

Set on the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake, the Dubai Fountain shoots water jets as high as 500 ft, equivalent to that of a 50-storey building. The fountain is 900 ft long and has five circles of varying sizes and two central arcs.

Desert Safari

A must-see for every visitor to United Arab Emirates. The tour departs in the afternoon and takes you across the desert of Dubai. This exciting drive across the dunes yields several look-out points where photographers can take photographs of the dunes' magnificence.

Along the way, participants get to visit a camel farm where they can interact with and feed the camels. At dusk, a stop will also be made to allow visitors to admire the beautiful sunset.

Dubai Creek
The Creek, a natural sea-water inlet which cuts through the centre of the city, is the historic focal point of life in Dubai. A stroll along its banks evokes the city’s centuries-old trading traditions. A good way to view the Creek and the dhows is from an abra, one of the small water taxis which criss-cross the Creek from the souks of Deira to the souks on the Bur Dubai side.

The Souk
The souks on both sides of the Creek do not just attract visitors due to their shopping bargains. Sightseers and photographers are also drawn by the charm of the place. Along with the slightly larger lanes of the gold souk, each shop window is arrayed with gold necklaces, rings, bangles, earrings and brooches. In the evening this area is a hive of activity. Gold prices here are among the lowest in the world.
