    10 reviews

    One of the most authentic places in Dubai. Make sure you spend a couple of hours walking around and exploring the neighborhood. You can find several galleries, museums along with a small hotel and some cafes. Bastakiya is the historical center of Dubai and where the city started.

    Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

    34 reviews

    Stunning modern marvel and the highlight of Abu Dhabi. Truly a serious challenge to the Taj Mahal. The official tours are a great introduction and will give you access beyond the velvet ropes. Hours are limited. An absolute must see. Arrive first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds. Bring sunglasses -- the white marble is highly reflective and ...

    Souk Madinat Jumeira

    32 reviews

    Completely artificial but thoroughly enjoyable. This artificial souk packs a lot of atmosphere even if it feels a little more Disney than authentic. Nice restaurants, good shopping, and steps away from the beach.

    The Burj Khalifa is a stunning piece of architecture and is visible from most parts of Dubai. Standing close to it at the Dubai Mall is humbling.

    Mall of the Emirates

    85 reviews

    Huge and over extravagant. I enjoyed walking around but it was a little overwhelming. What I did enjoy was the scenery outside- the giant fountain that goes off every hour and the enormous buildings.

    Dubai Marina Walk

    21 reviews

    Whenever I need to remember why I love living in Dubai, I visit the Dubai Marina. It’s one of the most stunning places in Dubai and looks very different than the rest of the city. It’s an artificial canal city built along the Persian Gulf shoreline. The Dubai Marina Walk can be quite a romantic place for a stroll at ...

    Dubai World Trade Centre

    Saadiyat Island Cultural District Exhibition

    2 reviews

    Even if only half of Saadiyat gets built, it will be a major accomplishment. As it stands now, and as laid out in this exhibition, Saadiyat is essentially a brand-new city from the marshy ground up. The exhibit is all bells and whistles--video interviews with the engineers, models of the fancy new museums, Frank Gehry's disembodied voice describing his vision. ...

    Souk Al Bahar

    4 reviews

    This Arabian-style shopping mall has more character than Dubai Mall but somehow feels a bit dark and cramped. I prefer the older Madinat Jumeirah for this style of mall but Souk Al Bahar is a nice break from the full-on mega Western monstrosity across the way at Dubai Mall.

    At The Top Burj Khalifa

    2 reviews

    The Burj Khalifa itself is gorgeous. I found the observation deck a little anti-climactic. The building is so tall versus the surrounding buildings that the views feel a bit muted. Still lovely but given the price and potential lines, I'd deprioritize vs. other experiences if I was short on time. 125 AED for a reserved time or 400 AED for ...
