Dubai is one of the most well known and well traveled metropolises in the world. It is also the most populated city in the United Arab Emirates and is a global business hub in the Middle East. People tend to travel here to experience the unique culture that it has to offer. Like most big cities, Dubai boasts some truly amazing landmarks and sites that attract tourists from all around the world.
Some of the leading tourist attractions of Dubai include: The Burj Khalifa landmark, the Dubai Mall, and the Dubai Museum. The Durj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world at 829.8 meters high. It includes an observation deck on the 124th floor where you can see a ton of the beautiful city. The Dubai Mall contains an ice skating rink, gaming zone, and movie theater. The Dubai Museum is at the Al-Fahidi Fort which has served as a royal residence, seat of government, garrison, and prison since its completion in 1787.
All of these landmarks and sites are integral parts of the city of Dubai and classic spots for any worldly traveller to visit. However, there’s a more off the beat option for those who are a bit more adventurous with their travels.
Dubai offers a hot air balloon tour where you are able to go in the air to observe falcons.
Falcons are an animal traditionally celebrated in Dubai since 2002 when Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the crown prince of Dubai, decided to popularize the sport of falcon racing. You can participate in this activity through the Royal Shaheen Events and Balloon Adventures Dubai companies.
