1. Marvel at the Burj Khalifa

No trip to Dubai is complete without a visit to the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building. Standing at a staggering 828 metres, it's a sight to behold. I have wanted to go and see this building for a long time. You can take the elevator to the observation deck on the 148th floor which has breathtaking views of the city skyline, the desert, and the Arabian Gulf. I want to go for sunset as the view is nothing short of spectacular imagine it at sunset. 

 Tip: Book your tickets in advance to avoid the long queues, especially during peak tourist seasons.

2. Explore the Dubai Mall

Just a stone's throw from the Burj Khalifa is the Dubai Mall, one of the largest shopping centres in the world. But it's not just about shopping, The mall is a destination in itself. You can visit the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, go ice skating, or simply marvel at the indoor waterfall. It's a perfect spot for families, shopaholics, and those looking to escape the heat. I mean come on you couldn't go to Dubai without a trip here. 

Tip: Wear comfortable shoes, the mall is enormous and you'll be doing a lot of walking! This is not a high-heel place this is a comfort is key place. 

3. Take a Desert Safari

For the adventurer like me, head out of the city and into the vast expanse of the Arabian Desert. I mean it would be rude not to go into the desert.  A desert safari is an adrenaline-fueled experience that can include dune bashing in a 4x4, camel riding, and sandboarding. As the sun sets, you'll be treated to a traditional Bedouin-style dinner under the stars, complete with belly dancing and henna painting. Count me in. 

 Tip: Make sure to bring a hat, sunglasses,  SPF, and plenty of water the desert sun can be unforgiving.

4. Stroll Through the Dubai Marina

Dubai Marina is a bustling waterfront area and is a great place to go for a leisurely stroll. I love boats and ships so this is a must for me. I want to sonter along the Marina Walk, admire the stunning yachts some of the world's biggest and most expensive berth here, and soak in the vibrant atmosphere. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants where you can sit and watch the world go by, or you can opt for a boat tour to see the impressive skyline from the water.

Tip: Visit in the evening when the area is beautifully lit up, creating a magical ambience. The way the yacht lights glint and glimmer in the evening is a must-see.
