When I first heard about Dubai, I was not very excited. The rich country with the most luxurious hotels is definitely worth a visit, but I never thought that this place had more to offer than just shopping and luxury services.
Dubai surprises everyone and you will be surprised too! It’s a great place for tourists – modern, beautiful and full of exciting places to visit.
What Makes Dubai So Special?
Here’s what actually makes Dubai stand out in terms of tourism.
1. Best Shopping Malls
The world’s best shopping malls Dubai is known as having the most expensive stores in the world, where people are here to work every day not only because of their salary but also for pleasure. Shopping centers are open 24/7 and even on holidays, which makes it possible to set foot in this place during Christmas or Easter. Just so you know, the biggest mall in the world is here – Dubai Mall with 1,200 shops and a shopping area of 8 million square meters!
2. Extreme Entertainment
As soon as you hit Dubai, you will have a feeling that anything can happen here. You can visit a place where a camel is walking right next to a Ferrari, and you do not have to worry about anything. In the evening, you can go for dinner at one of these restaurants on an island 16 kilometers from the coast, where luxurious yachts are constantly docked.
3. Beautiful Nature
The place where Dubai is located now was once empty. After the oil was found here, everything changed quickly and this city began to be built from scratch. It’s incredible that you can see skyscrapers next to Arabian castles. And even though people come here only for work and entertainment, there are still a lot of parks and gardens. It is astonishing that Dubai has 16 square meters of green area per 1 capita!
What is the Best Time to Visit Dubai?
It is best to visit this place in the winter, between December and February. At this time there is not very hot weather (not more than 30 degrees Celsius), and rainfall is minimal. Prices will be lower during this period, accommodation will cost less money.
Dubai has one of the most exciting tourist seasons throughout the year. It’s worth visiting this place, even if it is only for a few days. You should also make sure to visit the famous festival – Dubai Shopping Festival.
