Just so you know, there are a lot of family-friendly activities you can do apart from visiting Burj Khalifa and shopping-till-you-drop!

Here are the places you could visit in Dubai!

The Dubai Mall

Just before you visit Burj Khalifa, checking out The Dubai Mall. According to Visit Dubai, “even an entire day spent here isn’t enough to see it all”, because there are over 1,200 shops and 150 restaurants, plus there is an indoor theme park, an ice rink, a huge indoor waterfall, a choreographed outdoor fountain and the giant Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo. Do you still think Burj Khalifa should be on the top of your sight-seeing list? Scroll down for more.

The Dubai Fountain

Okay yeah, the Dubai Fountain is just at the base of Burj Khalifa and outside the doors of The Dubai Mall. This popular dancing water show jets water streams as high as 150 metres in the air. Each colourful, illuminated jet sways in time to various musical numbers from around the world, producing what has become one of the most popular shows in Dubai.

Burj Khalifa

Where ever you are in Dubai, the Burj Khalifa is hard to miss. The world’s tallest tower dominates the Dubai skyline, but the true majesty of the building is best appreciated up close or, even better, from inside. On a clear day, the view from the observation deck on level 124 is completely charming, surpassed only by the view from the comfortable “At The Top Sky Lounge” on the 148th floor.

Palm Jumeirah

A manmade island in the shape of a palm tree – there’s a reason why locals say ‘only in Dubai.’ Palm Jumeirah is one of the largest artificial islands in the world and a triumph of human ingenuity. Locals and tourists alike enjoy the Palm’s vast array of high-end hotels, including the Waldorf Astoria, Fairmont, One&Only, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray and, perhaps most notably, the iconic Atlantis, The Palm. And with a monorail running down the ‘trunk’ that connects to the mainland’s tram system, getting there couldn’t be easier.

Dubai’s Desert

Less than 20 minutes driving from the modernist streets of Downtown Dubai, you can experience the marvels of the Arabian desert, the original tourist attraction of Dubai. Take a desert safari Dubai-style with off-roading, quad biking and sandboarding followed by traditional barbecue, henna and camel rides. Or just drive out and experience the wonder of the desert on an adventure of your own. Those looking for luxury should indulge in a Heritage Dinner Safari. Can’t get enough in a day? Treat yourself to an unforgettable night amid the dunes at the Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa or Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa.
