Imagine a skyline taller than anything you’ve ever seen before rising out of the Middle Eastern desert. It must be a mirage, right? Nothing more than a figment of your delirious imagination.
But it’s real. That building that seems to reach into the stratosphere is called the Burj Khalifa, and it and the other buildings that make up this futuristic skyline are Dubai—the biggest city in the United Arab Emirates, and the next destination on your holiday list.
You can skydive, shop in old-world bazaars, visit museums or do anything else you want. Just book one of Wotif’s great Dubai holiday packages today and channel your inner Lawrence of Arabia tomorrow. See Old Dubai
As modern as this metropolis is, there’s still an old section of town, and it is a must-see. You’ll feel like you’ve time travelled to some distant, ancient age—all just a few blocks from your very modern hotel. Get behind the wheel with one of our Dubai car rentals and cruise the streets of the old city to see some of the cool things below: Bastakiya District – Many of the old buildings here have been restored to their traditional appearances and are great pieces of eye candy. There are also several great art galleries to explore and cafes where you can enjoy a cup of coffee. Dubai Museum – Located in Al Fahidi Fort—the oldest building in Dubai—this is the city’s main museum. Within the walls of the fort are reconstructions of old Arabic homes and ancient abras, a type of boat used in the local waterways. The galleries inside the actual museum building include an exhibit of old musical instruments like an azurna and a ghaychak, along with archaeological discoveries. Jumeirah Mosque – The largest mosque in the city is also one of the only ones to allow non-Muslim visitors to take tours. Sign up for one at the Sheik Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and you’ll enjoy one of the most unique experiences of your trip. We recommend taking the night tour, when the mosque is beautifully illuminated. See Modern Dubai
Out with the old and in with the new! A day or two cruising the ridiculously nice streets of the new town should be on your checklist. And so should these things below: Burj Khalifa – The most obvious thing to do is to check out this monstrosity of a building. Head up to the observation deck and see what the world looks like from the top of the tallest structure on earth. Enjoy lunch from a million metres in the air (well, it only seems like a million) at the At.Mosphere Burj Khalifa. The building sways in the wind, making your dining experience a little more…interesting…than you might expect. Dubai Water Canal – After many years of construction and delays, this cool new feature of Modern Dubai is finally open. You can travel the length of the 3km canal from the old district straight through the modern downtown area; it finally ends in the Arabian Sea. And because you saved big money on our cheap Dubai holidays, you’ll have all sorts of extra dirhams for fun stuff.
