Burj Al- Khalifa and Dubai Mall:
Burj Al- Khalifa, located in the heart of Dubai, is not only the tallest building in the Middle East, but throughout the world with a height of 321 meters and 60 floors and houses the Dubai Mall. This shopping complex has four floors and 1,200 stores. There is also a cinema, an aquarium and ice rink. One of the main attractions in Dubai Mall is a musical fountain located outside the mall.
Great shopping at Souq:
The Arabic word “Souq” means “market”. Dubai Spice Souq and Dubai Gold Souq are among the best places to shop for locally produced goods while taking in the traditional lifestyle. Here, visitors are advised to conduct a bidding process to get the best price.
Fun at IMG Worlds of Adventure:
