1. Burj Al Arab

Burj Al Arab is the tallest hotel in the world and the first 7-star hotel in the world. The construction was started in 1994 and was opened to the public in 1999. It is the iconic symbol of Dubai and it resembles a dhow (Arabian sea vessel) with a billowed out sail.

2. The Palm Islands Dubai

These are the world’s three man-made islands, so large that they can be seen from space with the naked eye. In 2002, the original two islands announced were the Palm Jumeirah and the Palm Jebel Ali and this project is being undertaken by Al Nakheel Properties (Nakheel Corporation). These islands are built in the shape of palm trees and there are houses on these islands to live in. It is simply stunning.

3. Dubai Museum

Dubai Museum is the oldest building in Dubai and was built in 1787. The goal of this museum was to present the traditional way of life in the Emirate of Dubai to the people. The museum includes local olden days as well as relics from African and Asian countries that traded with Dubai.

4. Fujairah

The naturally attractive scenery around Fujairah is a world away from city life and provides sufficient chance to discover wadis, forts and waterfalls. The fort overlooking the town is around 300 years old and is one of many in the city and surrounding hills.

5. Hatta

About 100km from Dubai is the sleepy town of Hatta. Beyond the town and into the Hajar Mountains are the Hatta Pools, where you can see deep canyons that have been carved out by rushing floodwater.
