Dubai – Things to do

Dubai Attractions

Dubai is the emirate that clinches all the headlines, steals all the scenes, and cleans up at every award show. About as far from a shrinking violet as it gets, this show-off of a city churns out world-famous structures – like the towering Burj Khalifa and man-made mega-island of Atlantis The Palm – in the blink of an eye. Add to that a year-round sunshine record and swathes of golden sand, and it’s no wonder this is the fourth most-visited city on the planet.
