I believe everyone needs to visit Dubai in their lifetime. Why it took me this long to write, I can’t understand but I’m glad I’m finally doing this.

For this excitement, I have decided to write on 5 places to visit while you’re in Dubai.

Views from JW Marriot hotel

Dubai is the United Arab Emirates’ holiday hot spot, thinking of a holiday getaway destination that combines best shopping experiences, sunshine, diverse cultural milieu and exciting adventure facilities then think Dubai.

We all know there’s a whole lot of places to visit in Dubai but we’ll concentrate on just 5 places and would be listing them in no particular order.


I lost all my clear pictures of Burj Khalifa

This majestic edifice is a combination of mesmerizing aesthetics and top class engineering. Measuring 828 meters in height, it is the tallest building in the world. The grand structure comprises the 160-room Armani hotel, residential accommodation and offices.

This ticket cost me almost a 100 dollars. I can’t remember.

Your journey to the Burj Khalifa commences on the 65 meter long moving sidewalk to reach the elevator. You may like to book your ticket in advance to avoid waiting in the queue otherwise you may have to pay extra for an immediate entry.


I lost about 2kg walking around at the mall😂

With over 1200 shops and over 100 million visitors every year, the Dubai Mall is the world’s largest shopping attraction. It is spread over an area of 440,000 sq. ft. and houses eminent brands from the fashion world. It is a shopper’s paradise where visitors can splurge on shopping, leisure and entertainment. Appreciate over 30,000 marine life in the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.


Book a safari trip to the sweeping sand dunes amidst the exhilarating landscape to experience dune bashing, sand boarding / sand skiing, and camel rides. Your journey is not complete till you have experienced the deserts, which are an integral part of the Middle East. After you have had your fill of excitement, you will be welcomed by non-alcoholic beverages served in Bedouin tents. You may try a traditional Arabic costume, smoke ‘Sheesha’ with other visitors, and watch Arabic dance by local artists. Barbeque dinner with authentic Arabic fare will be the perfect end to the evening. This will be an experience that you will cherish for a long time.


A world-class indoor resort, Ski Dubai is an attraction like no other. Whether you’re a skiing pro or an absolute beginner, this place is for everyone. Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort with 22,500 square meters of indoor ski area. The park maintains a temperature of -1 degree to 2 degrees Celsius throughout the year. It is a part of the Mall of the Emirates. Ski Dubai offers a variety of activities & gives you a chance to ski, snowboard, meet the penguins, zip line or take a chairlift ride.

The Dubai Miracle Garden is a flower garden located in the district of Dubailand, Dubai. It’ll cost you 50AED (5000 naira) to access the garden.

This popular tourist site holds a Guinness World Record as the Largest Vertical Garden.

There is an area that provides facilities such as sitting areas, parking spaces, shops and a prayer room for visitors to the Garden.

Dubai is so beautiful and everyone needs to experience it. If you ever need an enjoyment minister, someone to help you with a Dubai visa and affordable packages, I’m your go-to-person.
