List of Tourist Attractions in Dubai

  • Museum of the Future
    At Sheikh Zayed Road, a new landmark adorns Dubai's skyline. Museum of the Future, unveiled in 2022, represents the most innovative modern architecture of this futuristic emirate. The front facade is a sight to behold. The museum consists of seven floors, each based on a distinct theme. Three floors are dedicated to space research and ecosystem studies, while other floors look for solutions to the challenges the world faces today. There is one floor entirely dedicated to answering curious young minds. This is the place to visit to discover what the future holds.
  • Ain Dubai
    A city of superlatives, Dubai is passionate about its groundbreaking attractions. It now has a new name to add to its collection of record-breaking landmarks, Ain Dubai. Dominating the scenery at Bluewaters Island in Dubai, Ain Dubai is the world’s largest Ferris Wheel that also doubles up as an observatory wheel. In its observation pod, guests will get the best vantage point to see Dubai's magnificent cityscapes and seaside scenery. 
  • Burj Khalifa
    Dubai's Burj Khalifa is a must-see landmark on most visitors' travel lists. You would definitely try to capture this 830-metre high tower with your camera lens. Burj Khalifa has loads of record-breaking accolades to its name, but one of the interesting facts to note is that this is one of the rarest spots on the planet where you can watch a sunset twice in a single day!
  • Aquaventure water park and Lost Chambers Aquarium
    Get away from the desert heat at the most extravagant water park in the world. Boasted as the largest water park in the world, Aquaventure water park invites guests to Palm Jumeirah to enjoy over 100 water slides, rides, and activities. Here you can experience high drops and near-vertical slides that will give you the ultimate adrenaline rush. Not just adventure lovers, families with kids can also enjoy a wide array of pools and splash areas. A short distance away is the Lost Chamber Aquarium, which offers fascinating encounters with the ocean world. Your rendezvous with the most charismatic, prettiest, dangerous, and rarest marine animals in the world here would be one of the most memorable moments of your Dubai journey.  You can opt for Aquaventure water park ticket with Lost Chamber Aquarium Combo, but if you are staying at the Atlantis the Palm resort, you get complimentary access to both these attractions!
  • Dubai Frame
    Among its many landmarks, the Dubai Frame is the only structure that encases the beauty of old and modern Dubai. It has one of the best viewpoints to enjoy Dubai’s city skyline, thanks to its carefully planned location. At Zabeel Park, this metallic black and gold frame dazzles you with its beauty. Enjoy the perfect backdrop for many photo opportunities, then as you step inside the attraction, you travel through Dubai's past heritage, view its present panorama from the top bridge, and glimpse Dubai's future. 
  • Dubai Deserts
    If you are planning a trip to Dubai, you must get a sense of the city before it became a cosmopolitan destination. Beyond the city borders, the deserts reveal exactly what Dubai was - a barren expanse of golden dunes. However, Dubai's innovativeness has also turned Dubai's desert landscapes into an opportunity for some amazing desert adventures with a  desert safari Dubai tour. Prepare to be awe-struck as you zip through the serene deserts and explore many more thrilling activities such as camel riding, quad-biking, and sandboarding. The sunsets in the Arabian deserts are breathtakingly beautiful and the night is still young in the desert, as you enjoy some Arabian folklore and enjoy a delicious barbeque dinner. 

  • Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood 
    The deserts show what Dubai was, while the old townships along Dubai Creek's shorelines demonstrate how people first settled in Dubai as fishermen and traders before oil were discovered and the modern era began. The Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood has preserved a piece of the Bedouin timeline. Here, you step into a world completely different from present-day Dubai. Experience the simple life of early Dubai settlers with sand-coloured houses and wind towers to provide natural airflow to cool down during the summer heat. The alleys and lanes of this quaint neighborhood are lined with courtyard cafes and art galleries where you can sample the Arabic coffee and enjoy the art scene.

  • Dubai Souks
    Speaking of Old Dubai, wander off to the Arabian bazaars near Dubai Creek to explore the traditional marketplace. The Souks in Dubai offer a glimpse into old techniques of trading and at these winding alleys, you can find the best products from the Middle East. You wouldn't have seen anything like the Gold Souk where every shop dazzles and shimmers in gold and precious gems. The heady aromas of Spice Souk and Perfume Souk are sure to make you get some to take back home. 

  • Dubai Mall
    The biggest shopping mall in the world, by area, definitely deserves a spot on this list of best tourist attractions in Dubai. There is more to Dubai Mall than just shopping. It is a complete recreation attraction in itself. In addition to shopping from over 1,000 shops and retail outlets, you can also explore a virtual reality gaming zone - VR Park, marvel at underwater aquatic life at the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo or go ice skating. Due to its proximity to Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain, it is easy to spend an entire day exploring them all.
  • IMG Worlds of Adventure
    Located in the City of Arabia, IMG Worlds of Adventure is the biggest indoor amusement park in the Middle East and the second-largest in the world. Here, the adventures and thrills are based on MARVEL superheroes and Cartoon Network characters. You will also find a section that will take you into the world of dinosaurs and one of the only places that have a high-intensity ride - Velociraptor - that takes you outdoors for a brief period. 


Tips for Dubai visitors

  • It is very important to know exactly which type of Dubai visa you have to apply for when you are planning a trip to Dubai. If you are visiting Dubai for a holiday, you need a Dubai tourist visa; the length of time depends on how many days you plan on spending in the emirate. Make sure your passport is valid for 6 more months after you arrive in Dubai. To avoid any hassles later, apply for your visa as soon as possible, book your flights, and reserve hotels and attractions in advance. 

  • UAE law is strict, and the emirate expects visitors to abide by it diligently. If you are planning to visit Dubai, you should be aware of the products not allowed in the city. There are many do’s and don’ts at public places, landmarks, and attractions and the same should adhere properly. For instance, certain religious places and attractions have dress codes that must be followed. Visitors should be aware of the activities that are not acceptable which if not followed may cause them to be fined or deported from the UAE. 

  • It is important to consider the time of year you wish to visit Dubai. The temperature fluctuates between hot, hotter, and hottest in the emirate. November to mid-March, however, are months when temperatures dip and going for outdoor activities is pleasant. These are the best months to visit Dubai. 



Although Dubai is just a compact emirate of the UAE, the experiences it offers are remarkable and ever-growing. While these recommended attractions barely scratch the surface of Dubai's offerings, they are the best to see for a first-time visitor to Dubai. As you explore this beautiful UAE emirate you will find adventures and excitement galore!
