In the city of Dubai, nothing is impossible. This is where the largest mall, the largest acrylic panel, the tallest hotel, and the tallest building in the world are located. That’s not much. Without a doubt, Dubai is the right choice for an amazing holiday. Not only during the day, at night Dubai also offers fantastic views especially when all the city lights are on. Here we present 8 activities that you can do during a night tour in Dubai.
Dubai is no stranger to the world record books, and the fountain show at the Dubai Mall is one of those things. Dubai Mall itself is the largest mall in the world with a total of 1,200 shops and an area of more than 1,124,000 square meters (12,098,653.3 square feet). The Dubai Mall also houses the largest acrylic panel (aquarium) and the world’s largest candy store, Candylicious, which sits on an area of 930 square meters (10,000 square feet).
The choreographed fountain located on Lake Burj Khalifa, in this mall is the second largest in the world. For those of you who like similar shows in Las Vegas, the Dubai fountain show will amaze you. The show runs every half hour, every day, from 6:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., and two additional shows at 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.
Each performance features water movements choreographed to a specific song, specially designed by the dance stylist. Every day, the songs that play are always changing (ranging from Arabic and international songs like Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston), so you can catch a lot of shows in just a few days. The method is quite easy. You just have to find a seat around the lakeside and wait for the show to start!
Located at the Dubai Mall, Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo are night spots suitable for family vacations where you can learn about underwater life and nature protection. Feed the stingrays and sharks or take a glass-bottomed boat to get a closer look at marine life. You can visit the aquarium by walking through the glass tunnel while creating unforgettable moments.
This aquarium continues to innovate and create to keep visitors entertained. One of the newly launched attractions is the beautiful mermaid show!
You must be wondering, where is it possible to ski in the desert area? Even though Dubai is part of the United Arab Emirates where the majority of the area is desert, here is the region’s first indoor ski resort! With a mountain-themed setting, this place offers ski and snowboard or toboggan facilities for children. You can also interact with penguins!
If you want to experience an authentic desert experience, join this safari and take a 4WD car ride around the desert before having dinner in the moonlit onion and watching Arabic dance and belly dance performances. Dress in Bedouin clothes and ride a camel to watch the sunset before trying on traditional henna and shisha. For the maximum experience, join this safari in the sandboarding season.
Forget your fear of heights for this unforgettable experience. Step into the elevator of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, which will take you to the top floor in an instant. Located on floor 122, Atmosphere is a prestigious award-winning restaurant and lounge. Visit this unique place for a drink or a romantic dinner!
