Balloon Adventures Emirates

They say viewing a place from a high vantage point is always the best way to comprehend the full scope and beauty of it. Well this is certainly true for Dubai! There is no better way to view the amazing desert landscape and the awesome desert dawn than from the vantage point of a gently floating hot air balloon. From high in the sky you will gain an awesome appreciation for the rolling red dunes,...

Wild Wadi

To make the most of the scorching Dubai heat, head to the Wild Wadi waterpark. Located in front of the iconic Burj Al Arab, the waterpark has a great central location. Here you can beat the heat as you chill out and relax in the pools and lagoons, brave your fears on some truly thrilling rides and test your surfing skills. With rides and attractions to suit all ages, Wild Wadi is guaranteed to pu...

Creek Park

As its name suggests, Creek Park is located right by the creek, in Umm Hurair district. It boasts great views of Dubai's skyline and the creek shores, and has a fairly different feel to it from other Dubai parks since it is one Dubai's oldest and biggest recreational areas. Barbeque grilles are placed in designated areas with lots of shade and greenery. You cannot bring your own grill, so you'll ...

The fountain was designed by the creators of the famous Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas and boasts the ability to shoot water as high as 150 metr...

At The Top - Burj Khalifa Observation Deck

A trip to Dubai would not be complete without a visit to Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building. This architectural delight was officially opened in 2010. Since then, visitors have been able to traverse to its observation deck, aptly named At the Top. An 'At the Top' visit is much more than spectacular city views and dizzying heights. You will also have the chance to learn about the towe...
