Why you should visit Dubai

What makes Dubai stand out is how advanced it is and how quickly it was built. Dubai is thought to have been established as a fishing village in the early 18th century. By 1822, it had become a town of 700 to 800 Bani Yas tribe members and subject to Abu Dhabi.

Today Dubai has an area of 1,610km2 and a population of 3,564,931 million people. The city is filled with fun activities and is home to the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, which is 828 meters (about 2716.54 ft) tall. Here you will get the best view over Dubai, especially at night. Dubai is very safe and everybody you come across is friendly. You could, for example, leave your phone in a restaurant and no one would steal it. Located at the centre of Dubai is the impressively large Dubai Fountain, which is so large you can even go on a boat ride on it. The city is also home to the largest human-made artificial beach called the Palm Jumeirah, which has some of the coolest restaurants. Personally, my favorite activity is the safari in the desert. First you go into an SUV and learn to do some cool stunts in the sand. They then bring you to a venue in the middle of the dessert, where professionals perform impressive tricks, while being served delicious middle eastern food. The most exciting activity that I could unfortunately not take part in as I am under the age of 18, is sky diving with a professional from a high skyscraper. For the opening of the Burj Khalifa a professional skydived from the very top as a celebration. Of course, you cannot forget the Dubai Mall, which has everything you can imagine from arcades, Ice-skating, a food court and lots more. I spent a lot of the time in the arcade because I love video games.

Madinat Jumeirah translated as ‘City of Jumeirah’ complex is inspired by an ancient citadel. It is supposed to reflect the traditional Arabian architecture. One of the greatest landmarks is the Dubai Frame. Since the opening in 2018, Dubai Frame has become a cultural landmark that connects Dubai’s past with its present and represents a remarkable engineering feature, located within Dubai’s famous Zabeel Park, this attraction lets you experience the transition between old and new Dubai thanks to sweeping panoramic views of the city from 150 meters (about 492.13 ft) high. One of its striking features is the transparent glass bridge walkway, which connects parallel vertical towers so that, from the outside, the structure perfectly resembles a giant picture frame.

This and much more is what makes Dubai stand out from other cities and allows it to be a popular tourist destination.
