Speaking of that, why is Dubai called the city of superlatives? Home to the tallest building in the world, the giant Burj Khalifa, Dubai has always done something by going the extra mile and achieve it all. To add more, the supertall skyscraper - the Palm, built on reclaimed land from the sea near the Jumeirah Coast of Dubai is a giant palm tree structure that not just defies the normal beliefs but attracts a lot of awe from the people coming to visit Dubai. A city above the clouds, this is an ideal destination to spend an exotic vacation with your soulmate availing our Dubai Honeymoon packages.
Not just the sky-scraping buildings, Dubai is also famous for providing some of the most unique and adventurous experiences, ones that you can cherish for a lifetime. Dubai has been able to create ways for itself in places where no one could even imagine to venture. Be it land, mountains, sand dunes, skies or even the waters around, Dubai has conquered it all. One of the most famous adventure sports and often a delightful inclusion in many of the Dubai tour packages is the adrenaline pumping experience of Desert Safari. The thrill of riding a 4x4 vehicle and bashing the dunes of the desert nearby Dubai is going to be forever instilled in your mind. The delicious BBQ dinner and sleep overnight in the camps pitched in the middle of the desert makes it even an astounding post-experience.
And speaking of dessert, how would you like to glide on the fine sands and surf down the dunes at a heart-racing speed? Yet another favorite of tourists arriving in Dubai every year to get the best out of your Dubai trip! Sandboarding is a famous adventure sport that takes place in the deserts of Dubai and is something that attracts a lot of people here, especially in the months of winter.
Dubai also takes care of visitors who wish to get away from all the heat. With the introduction of Ski Dubai, the city of superlatives reached a new level of making the impossible possible. Ski Dubai, built in the middle of a desert is the experience of snow under a roof in the dizzyingly high temperatures here. Complete with an 85-meter mountain possessing 5 slopes, a 400-meter run, and a 3000 square meter snow play area, all in one of the biggest malls in the world, Mall of the Emirates. Spread in an area of 22,500 square meters, Ski Dubai is the experience of snow in the middle of a heat-blazing desert.
To add up to the list, another great achievement of this city is that of mastering the art of challenging the limits that the sky has to offer as well. You can enjoy skydiving over the Palm and come speeding down from a height of over 8000 ft towards the ground underneath to add more to your Dubai Trip. And as you come down, you will get an eye-feasting, never-seen-before view at the amazing skyline of Dubai and the man-made island structure of The Palm.
And talking of conquering the skies, Dubai is also the home of world’s tallest skyscraper, Burj Khalifa. The neck-craning giant is, in turn, home to the world’s highest observation deck. It is said that if you stand at the bottom of the Burj Khalifa and then take a quick elevator to the observation deck, you can watch the sunset twice in the same day. And that is probably the reason why the observation deck is one of the most famous places to visit in Dubai. You get some of the most amazing views of the Dubai skyline.
And right next to Burj Khalifa are two amazing experiences. The first one is the Dubai Fountain. Being one of the most amazing spectacles of Dubai, this place attracts a large number of people at the evening fountain shows, but more than that, the place is famous for the Zipline that goes over the lake, even when the show is in full swing. Combining two of the most amazing experiences that the Dubai Fountain offers is going to prove to be an unforgettable moment of your Dubai trip.
The second amazing thing that lies near the Burj Khalifa is the biggest mall in the world, The Dubai Mall. The place is not just famous for being of such humongous proportions but is also famous for being the home to one of the most unique experiences that you can expect to find in Dubai- the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo. Holding the record of being the world’s largest suspended aquarium, the Dubai Aquarium is a must-visit place in Dubai. Housing the world’s biggest collection of Sand Tiger Sharks, the place also offers some of the most scenic views of animals like Piranhas, Sea Otters, large Catfishes and a large colony of Humboldt Penguins.
And if you think that the experience in Dubai Mall is only limited to seeing other creatures of nature going by their normal life, then you are wrong. Another example of why Dubai is one of the places that offer everything for people who come here in search of experience. The Dubai Mall has a one-of-a-kind indoor scuba diving experience. Diving with the sharks housed in the 10-million liter capacity tank, you will have an experience that will not only be a memorable one for yourself but will also be a matter of envy in the people looking at you from outside the tank.
No, the adventure for these Dubai holiday packages does not just end here. The IMG Worlds of adventure is another gem in the crown of Dubai.
