Founded as fishing village in the 18th century, today Dubai is one of the world’s most modern and popular tourist destination. It’s a place that has been built using the full power of the human imagination. Take our hop-on hop-off tour and we’ll show you just how amazing it is.
Our first stop is at Dubai Mall, which is the size of 50 football pitches, and home to more than a thousand shops and an aquarium! And when you come out, make sure you look up and you’ll see the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, which is more than twice the height of the Empire State Building and one of the wonders of the modern world.
Dubai isn’t all cutting-edge modernity though. The Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood was built before the oil boom of the 1970’s, when Dubai was much smaller. You can wander its old streets and visit its fascinating traditonal buildings, many of which are home to cultural attractions such as museums and galleries. Don’t miss the Gold & Spice Souks. They’re a treat for the senses, with the fragrant scents of spices from around the world and the stunning allure of gold, platinum and diamonds.
Madinat Jumeirah is one of the jewels in the city’s tourism crown. This enormous 5-star complex might resemble a traditional Arab town, but it’s actually one of the world’s leading and most luxurious holiday resorts.
