Bollywood's biggest superstar and Dubai's favourite, Shah Rukh Khan personally invites you to visit Dubai.
If it is not the biggest, tallest or longest, it doesn’t belong in Dubai. Over the years Dubai has gained a reputation of breaking world records and doing things “differently” from rest of the world. With over 100 Guinness World Records under its belt, Dubai is on a path to truly become the most sought after destination in the world.
Here are some of the best records to mention in Dubai:
Tallest building in the world – Burj Khalifa soars high in Downtown Dubai at 828 meters.
Largest mall in the world – Dubai Mall is spread over 1.1 million square meters.
Biggest gold ring – Weighing in at 63.856 kilograms, the 21 karat gold ring is on display in Deira gold souk.
Longest driverless Metro – The Dubai Metro is longest driverless Metro spread over 75 kilometres across Dubai.
Dubai is not only breaking the biggest records but when it comes to superlatives, Dubai is also becoming a top destination for tourism. With the opening of IMG World, the world’s largest indoor theme park, the city is also seeing Dubai Parks open a multi theme park facility including the regions’ first Legoland, Bollywood Park and Motion Gate studios.
As a family or a couple or even a single person, if you are visiting Dubai, rest assured you will be truly amazed and left speechless at the many aspects in which Dubai will make your trip memorable.
Here are some other key reasons why Dubai should be on your 2017 list of must visit places.
Dubai Opera: Newly built in heart of Dubai downtown, the Opera house is a masterpiece of modern architecture. The shape of the Opera was inspired from an Arabian Dhow ship and it has beautiful views of the Dubai fountain and Burj Khalifa. The Opera can easily transform into a concert hall, a theatre or just a hall for any event. Make sure to catch your favourite show live at Dubai Opera during your visit.
Kite Beach: Got water sporting skills? Well, this is just the place for you. Don't worry though, if you want to stay out of the water, there is still plenty to do like have a smoothie from one of the cafes or enjoy the skaters and bikers at the new skate park. You can play beach volley ball or just simply spend the whole day catching a tan and enjoying magnificent views of Burj Al Arab.
Dubai Creek: Among all the glamour and luxury of Dubai, the Dubai Creek will always remain the real "heart of Dubai'. Also known as Old Dubai, the creek is the place where the Bani Yas tribe settled and it then transformed into a major fishing and pearl diving trade locations. While visiting the creek, make sure to stop by Dubai Museum, Spice Souk and catch an Abra (Arabic boat) to head over to Gold Souk.
