Where is Dubai? It is, by all accounts, a much-Googled question. One assumes that the Googlers are looking for the literal answer which is that Dubai is in the United Arab Emirates. Or more precisely, 25.2048° N, 55.2708° E.
Burj Khalifa (the world's tallest structure, which we mentioned earlier!), The Dubai Mall and the man-made island known as Palm Jumeirah are probably the most popular attractions in Dubai. There are hundreds of more attractions to enjoy. However, these three really stand out and they are proven to make tourists extremely happy!
With this in mind, let's take a quick look at each one...
Burj Khalifa is the tallest structure around, but height isn't all that it has to offer. It rises 828 meters over the city, and it's a great place to access the most impressive views of the city, via its observation deck, which is located on the building's 124th level. As well, be sure to visit the Top Sky Lounge for a cocktail. You'll find it on Floor 148. This tower has a hotel, a restaurant (on level 122) and so much more. It's a not-to-be-missed Dubai attraction!
The Dubai Mall is beside the Burj Khalifa, and it's no typical shopping mall. It usually takes more than one day to see all of its shops and features, which include one hundred and fifty eateries, twelve hundred boutiques, an indoor amusement park, a rink for ice skating, a giant indoor waterfall and a zoo which is underwater! If you want sensory overload and the most fabulous shopping and dining imaginable, then this is the mall of your dreams.
Palm Jumeirah earned its famous name by virtue of its unique shape. Its shape is reminiscent of a palm tree! It's one of the biggest man-made islands on the planet and its loaded with exceptional resort hotels, such as the Waldorf Astoria and the Atlantis. Also, the island has its own monorail that runs down the trunk which links to the tram system on the mainland.
