It was until 1970 that the emirates began to build the city that we can visit today, it went from being a small fishing village to a cosmopolitan, tourist city, full of excesses and overflowing with wealth.

Curiosities:

Burj Al Arab

One of the first attractions that the city of Dubai had was the Burj al Arab, known for being the best hotel in the world, okay, or at least the most luxurious on the entire planet.

This is the sail-shaped hotel where only billionaire businessmen, sheikhs and emirs spend their days, but you can always visit it outside and enjoy a swim on the beach.

The Burj Al Arab is the first 7-star hotel in the world, which is why only the most select people enjoy its facilities to stay. Although the 7-star thing is actually a self-recognition, since the official highest rating is 5 stars.

Souq Madinat

It is an Arab bazaar adapted to the concept of what Dubai is, a luxury and modern city of the XNUMXst century, so it is also something unique to do in Dubai.

It is a beautiful place, formed by canals where giant tortoises swim and also, since the place belongs to several hotels, there are tons of first-class bars and restaurants that serve alcohol.

The Majestic Burj Khalifa

The Burj Khalifa is part of a cluster of urban development works in downtown Dubai. In addition to this world-record skyscraper, there are more skyscrapers in the immediate vicinity (it is not in the center of Dubai for a reason) and the Dubai Mall, a huge shopping center, so there are many ways to get to it.

In addition to all this, the tallest building in the world breaks other records such as having the highest pool and mosque in the world.

The Best of Abu Dhabi

 Abu Dhabi with its impressive Sheikh Zayed Mosque, is another of the best excursions from Dubai. Built in white marble and with four minarets, this mosque is considered one of the wonders of the modern world, inside you will see the largest handmade carpet in the world and 7 gold-plated lamps and Swarovski crystals.

In addition to the visit, it is also worth going to the viewpoint known as "Oasis of Dignity" to enjoy a sunset with the best views of the mosque, as it lights up.

A cruise on Cruises:

The city has several artificial canals and a natural estuary, known as Dubai Creek, in which different types of cruises are made, they have become one of the best tours in Dubai that you can do.

One of the most famous is the one that is made by the artificial canal of Dubai that is surrounded by skyscrapers. The best time to take any cruise is at night while you see all the illuminated buildings you can try the local food while dining on board these two cruises.

Al Ain, a real treasure

It is one of our favorite places to see in the United Arab Emirates. It is located near the border with Oman and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Al Ain is one of the oldest permanently inhabited settlements in the world. Where you can find natural and historical springs that will leave you speechless and much more.

Jumeirah Beach

Dubai does not lack anything, in this city there is everything: skyscrapers, shopping centers, and of course, a good beach cannot be missing either.

Jumeirah Beach is the most central and crowded, although the vast majority of bathers are tourists. With 7 kilometers of sand, crystal clear waters and a unique environment, it is a perfect place to relax. In addition, it has all the necessary facilities: bathrooms, sun lounger and umbrella rental, restaurants, bike lanes and even water sports operators who offer their services.
