The dynamic metropolis of Dubai is so mesmerizing that you feel like floating through the fantastical fables of ‘Alice in Wonderland.' The happening city, which is home to many of the world's 'largest,' 'tallest' and 'biggest,' is riddled with many exciting spectacles.
It's just recently that the country announced the project of 'Palm Jebel Ali,' which is bigger than the existing Palm Jumeirah, the world's largest artificial archipelago built for leisure and tourism.
Visiting the world's tallest building Burj Khalifa, enjoying the world's largest natural flower garden named Dubai Miracle Garden and the like often figure on the must-do lists of Dubai tourists. However, the emirate also has a few other interesting spots that can excite travellers. Here are a few of them:
The golden Dubai frame gives an epigrammatic view of the stunning city. The rectangular frame, which is in the middle of the ‘Old Dubai’ and the ‘New Dubai’, gives a kaleidoscopic view of the metropolis to the tourists.
The 48-floor frame also boasts of a glass walkway. The galleries are a time machine of sorts as they provide a glimpse into Dubai’s past and the future of the agile megalopolis.
The Dubai Safari Park, which is spread across 119 hectares of land, houses close to 3,000 animals. The visitors can have a great time as the facility has an African Village exclusively for animals from the African continent, a drive-through African Desert Safari and an Asian Village that reflects the cultural diversity of the Asian continent, among others.
The park is the prefect destination to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city’s fast life and be on the lap of nature.
The places such as Al Barsha, Al Nahda, Al Qusais 3, Al Qouz and Al Khawaneej are dotted with pond parks, which are large water bodies hugged by parks.
Though the footfall at the pond parks is pretty low, these eye-catching spaces have outlets of local traders, walkways and fountains. If you want to spend some quality time with your family members, then the park ponds are just for you.
Umm Suqueim Beach
The spick and span beaches of the UAE are popular among tourists across the globe.
Umm Suqueim Beach is one of the sought-after beaches in the UAE as it has different types of water sports, facilities for a safe swim, long walkways and eating joints that dish out cuisines of various countries. Another striking feature is the public library for bibliophiles.
Mushrif Park trails
The Mushrif Park has been the favourite hunting ground of nature lovers for long. The Dubai Municipality had thrown open a 50km-long cycling tracks to the public in 2021.
The cycle tracks are drawing professional cyclists and cycling enthusiasts alike and the Dubai administration is putting in place superlative facilities to increase tourist footfall at the park. Cycling in the park is an experience of a lifetime as you get the opportunity to cycle through tracks that are amidst close to 70,000 trees. The cycle tracks of the Mushrif Park are one of a kind in Dubai.
