Dubai, a city in the United Arab Emirates, is one of the trendiest destinations that people from all around the world visit every year. Personally speaking, Dubai is a great city to spend vacations full of adventures. If you want to travel out of the United States, then the United Arab Emirates must be on your list.
First of all, Dubai is home to the world's highest skyscraper, which is also known as Burj Khalifa. Every day, thousands of visitors flock to the tower and take one of the fastest lifts in the world up to the viewing platforms located on the 124th and 125th floors. From there, you can enjoy an extraordinary panorama over the whole city. You can even go up to the 148th floor to reach the highest viewing platform in the world.
Secondly, in the city center, right next to the Burj Khalifa, there is the most visited shopping center. With more than 1200 shops and hundreds of restaurants, you will for sure find something that fits your taste and your budget.
Not only are there hundreds of shops and restaurants, but you can also admire sea life in the Dubai aquarium and underwater zoo. When entering the aquarium, you will first go through a tunnel filled with sharks and other fishes. Then, you will go to the underwater zoo located on the second floor to discover different species of fishes, seahorses and jellyfishes.
Lastly, if you are looking for adventures, I would suggest trying the world's longest urban zipline XLine. Located in Dubai Marina, it is one of the steepest and fastest ziplines around the globe: measuring 1km in length, up to 170m in height and with an average speed of 80km/h.
Additionally, you might want to go to Aquaventure Waterpark. It is Dubai’s most famous water park, where you can take some of the world’s best water slides and slide through a shark-infested tunnel. Also, if you are interested in skiing, then definitely visit Ski Dubai: the famous indoor skiing area. Yes, in Dubai, you can even enjoy skiing and snowboarding when it’s 100 degrees outside!
To conclude, Dubai is one of the best destinations to choose for your next trip. With its famous landmarks, theme parks and shopping centers, you will absolutely enjoy your time.
