Alongside this is Palm Jumeirah, the artificial archipelago that stands as a milestone in land reclamation. Tourists will remain astounded by the sheer diversity of things and yes, it is not something you see in any other part of the world.

The best place for shopping is this emirate is Dubai Mall, located on Doha Road. An entry point to Burj Khalifa, this place gives you endless options for dining and shopping. Fashion shows and live music regale visitors while they indulge in shopping and sporting activities. Yes, you have the rink for ice-skating if you prefer it with gaming sones. The shopping season peaks twice a year, once during January-February with the Dubai Shopping Festival and then again in July-August during the Dubai Summer Surprises festival.
Climb the World’s Tallest Building
Without a doubt, the epitome of luxury tourism, the Burj Khalifa is the landmark destination of tourists. Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world at 829.8 meters. The view from the 124th-floor observation deck is spectacular because the tourist gets to see winding sidewalks and design gardens, the endless desert sands, and the Dubai Fountain in its majestic splendor.
Check the Big Picture Frame
In this land of the huge and the spectacular, it is time to view another of the biggest in the world, the Dubai Frame. This is one of the top sightseeing spots in Dubai. Here you get to see the “biggest picture frame on the planet,” according to The Guardian newspaper; it is in Zabeel Park. The picture itself remains mired in controversy owing to the allegation of Fernando Donis who claims that someone stole his design. But, the picture frame is still the biggest.
Dancing Fountains of Dubai
Another popular but not unique spot is the Dubai Fountain, a choreographed fountain system that shoots 22,000 gallons of water into the air at any instant. It has music, colored lights, and spectacular synchrony that holds the viewer spell-bound for the entirety of 30 minutes of the show. The water rises in the air up to 240 feet and so the show is stunning, to say the least.
