What We Love About Dubai

A desert metropolis located in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is more than just as a layover destination. Home to world-class entertainment and architectural wonders, the country also houses the world's tallest building that also boasts of having the world's highest observation deck on the 148th floor at a staggering 555 meters (around 1,820ft tall!). Fill your holiday with the thrills of not one, but two mega theme parks AND a waterpark at Dubai Parks and Resorts! Not to be missed is an evening desert safari experience where you'll get to explore the Arabian desert, enjoy breathtaking views of sandy hills, and be treated to dinner featuring a belly-dancing performance!

It was a wonderful trip. Dubai is specially beautiful from water. You will not get a better chance to come close not only to the finest hotels in the world but even to the private residences of the ruler of the country, Mr. Al Makhtoum and his pet tigers. Thanks to the skipper William for a smooth journey and to Jian for the interesting facts and the pictures and the water.

Highly recommended especially when you want to familiarise yourself in the city. Audio guide is available live and pre-recorded. I chose the live one tonamke it more accurate during the tour. Also, he was very informative and helpful. He definitely knows the historical information in every corners of Dubai and is updated even the recent happenings within the city.

Great experience! And good price/quality too. Did this last week. Not too busy or crowded, very relaxed, friendly staff. Good thing was that family could also really come close into the pool area to take pictures (about 10-15 meters away). The session was cool, long enough and with great respect for the dolphin. Indoors. I can really recommend it ;-). Combine with a visit to old Dubai (Souks) and a picknick in the Creek Park. And off course the Dolphin show before or afterwards. Real fun and educational for the whole family.

The Arab Emirate of Dubai has long been considered the main expert in the question "How to impress the world community?" For a couple of decades, out of the blue in the middle of the desert, a modern metropolis has grown: the tallest skyscrapers in the world, a gigantic and well-equipped airport, mosques that look like palaces, luxury hotels. Against this background, such trifles as a park of flowers could be no longer surprised. Of course, even the flowers on Arabian oil grew the best, despite the surrounding desert and + 45 ° C in the shade. And yet - it is impossible not to be amazed at him. A must visit! We enjoyed it immensely. We visited a fairy tale.

2019 Dec .... The original tour that we had booked decided to do a last min cancel on our trip. With only 1 more day left in Dubai, we tried to book for another tour but no hope! Just when I was feeling depressed about it, I decided to try klook and was very lucky to find a morning safari trip! Immediately booked, gotten the confirmation on the spot and the trip went well! We truely love this experience!

As much as I find Dubai attractions generally overrated and overpriced, this was an exception. I had a premium ticket which is almost 100 usd (and nearly 40 usd cheaper than at the venue) but if you can afford it, it’s totally worth it. You get unlimited skiing or snowboarding (perfect for beginners and intermediate; advanced skiers might quickly get bored, even though they have a “black” run) or a lesson, all equipment, access to all fun rides, a good meal (you chose from the menu), waterproof gloves, hand warmers , hot chocolate, locker, one printed photo (for all of these you pay extra otherwise and they charge a lot), and penguin encounter (mine lasted almost one hour). You can easily spend there a whole day. Bring you own hat and put on some layers, jackets aren’t very warm.
