Though the guidelines may be stringent, if you follow them you will surely enjoy Dubai Tours. The best places to visit while on Dubai tours are given below:

Burj Khalifa:

The tallest building in the world is naturally going to be the prime attraction. You can view the building from anywhere in the city as it towers into the sky. We must congratulate the creators of the building for first envisaging something as wonderful as Burj Khalifa in the middle of a desert. And bringing the idea into fruition must have been a mammoth task. We need to understand that the work and sweat of multiple people made such a task possible and we need to tip our hat for that. The best part about Burj Khalifa is the observation deck. The decks are on the 124th floor as well as the 148th floor. You can view the city from this vantage point and just marvel. I forgot to mention that it takes under one minute to travel to the viewing decks in the high speed elevator. The elevator ride is itself worth it.

Dubai Museum and Al Bastakiya Quarter:

Dubai is not just modern buildings, it has a wonderful past and a rich cultural heritage and Al Bastakiya is the place to head to, to discover it. The old buildings with their architecture are a tourist’s delight. While you are in old Dubai you should visit the Dubai Museum which is in the Al Fahidi Fort and understand the culture of the city.

The Dubai Mall:

The Dubai Mall is a very huge mall with over 1000 retailers. You can shop till you drop and the mall is not just about shopping, there are other attractions like the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, the VR Park etc. There are many amazing dining opportunities with some of the best restaurants housed here. Another major attraction at the Dubai Mall is the Dubai Fountain. People from all walks of life descend to the Dubai Fountain to watch the choreographed fountain shows. When you see water dancing, it is really a sight to behold and the best part is the show is free.

Burj Al Arab:

Burj Al Arab is considered to be the only 7 star hotel in the world, though some dispute this claim. Even if there are other 7 star hotels in the world, it does not matter because the beauty of the sail shaped building is there for all to see. If you can afford a stay, then nothing like it. If you cannot, then you can take pictures or selfies with the wonderful building.
