Burj Khalifa
Put your fears aside for a day and visit Burj Kalifa, the tallest building in the world. Towering at over 828m and with more than 160 stories, this is the ideal skyscraper to get magnificent 360 degree views of Dubai city. The journey begins in the lower ground level of The Dubai Mall which is another highlight in itself.

Shopping
Shop till you drop at any of the many malls in Dubai. Of particalur interest will be The Dubai Mall, the largest shopping and entertainment district in the world. Make a day of it at this mall which is home to 1200 retail stores and over 160 food and beverage outlets. Be sure to visit the key centre piece here, Dubai Aquarium. Holding 10 million litres of water and over 33,000 species, this underwater world definitely offers an incredible close-encounter experience. A special lunar lighting system changes the ambience of the tank depending on the time of day. Outside of the mall witness The Dubai Fountain in all its glory. Performing daily, the fountain shoots water jets as high as 150m, equivalent to that of a 50-storey building.

Souqs
Take an Abra (water taxi) across Dubai Creek and check out the myriad of souqs (markets) located on the banks. Head to the gold souq with streets and streets of shops aligned with sparking windows. Take your sunnies as the greeting glare can be overpowering.

Sharjah
The third largest of the seven Emirates, Sharjah boast scenic waterfronts overlooking the Arabian Gulf and Gulf of Oman, beautiful mosques, Souqs and numerous well-maintained museums.

Al-Ain
Considered part of the Abu Dhabi state, Al-Ain is often referred to as the ‘Garden City of the Gulf’ due to its many oases, parks and tree-lined streets. It’s worth a visit with many family attractions.
