UAE or United Arab Emirates is one of the top holiday destinations today. The country comprising of 7 Emirates is an epitome of style, culture, luxury, and elegance. The most surprising thing about the country is that the growth and development we see today have happened in the last four decades. If you want to have relaxed, fun-filled holiday, UAE is a great place to head to. While the climate is quite warm, especially in the summers, most of the places are air-conditioned, which would make your holiday comfortable.
UAE boasts of several incredible places, some of which are beautiful gifts of nature and some of which are the marvellous feat of the human mind. While the list of the best places in UAE can cover pages, here we present 7 incredible places in UAE that you should visit.
When it comes to the incredible places in UAE, the Burj Khalifa surely tops the list. This steel structure is the tallest building (163 floors) not only in the country but also in the entire world. But this is not the only record that Burj Khalifa has broken. Apart from being the tallest building, it has several other specialties.
The Burj Khalifa has the largest observation deck on the 124th floor and also the fastest elevator. While you cannot visit each and every floor of the building, the observation deck is open to visitors. So, book your tickets and get a chance to view the entire city of Dubai in a distinctive way.
While Dubai is home to some exceptional architectural marvels, Abu Dhabi (the capital of UAE), is no less when it comes to beautiful buildings and monuments. One of the major highlights of this Emirate city is the Grand Mosque which is a tribute to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the former president of UAE. The mosque made of white marble, embellished with intricate designs is a monument of exceptional beauty. It is also the largest mosque in the world and can hold around 40,000 people.
The longest carpet adorns the floor of the mosque while exquisite crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling, giving the mosque a divine and elegant look.
Dubai Creek Dhow Cruise
The Dubai Creek is one of the most important areas in Dubai not only because of the development the place has seen but also because it is closely associated with the history of the Emirate city. It is on the banks of the Dubai Creek that the Arabs had first settled. Another importance of the Dubai Creek is that it divides the city into two, one side being Deira and the other being Bur Dubai.
While walking the Dubai Creek is a great idea to take in the glimpses of the place, the best way to enjoy the sights along the Creek is by going on an abra ride. Apart from this, you can also go on a cruise dinner on the Dubai Creek which is usually called as “Dhow Cruise Dinner” where you get to dine on a dhow-turned-restaurant while enjoying the glittering sites of the place.
Hatta Mountain Safari
While the cities of UAE, especially Dubai and Abu Dhabi are ultra-modern and dazzling, the country is not just about the modern buildings and structures. In fact, UAE has several naturally beautiful places that would take your breath away. The Hajjar Mountains is one such place which is marvelously beautiful.
The Hatta Mountain Safari would take you to the marvelous Hajjar Mountains, the natural pools of the Hatta and the Heritage Village. The Heritage Village of Hatta would give you a glimpse of the life of Arabs before oil was discovered in the country. Apart from being the perfect way to know more about the culture of the place, this tour would also offer you adventure with activities like dune bashing, sandboarding, etc.
The Dubai Museum is a place where you would get to see the history of the Arabs and UAE too. The specialty of the museum is that it is located inside the Al Fahidi Fort which is the oldest existing building in the city. The museum displays the traditional life of the Arabs in the past, including their style of living, their clothes, food, occupation, etc.
You would also find models of the dhow, abra, old Arabic home and the traditional wind tower at the museum. Also, do not miss the audio-visual show that demonstrates the growth and development of the city.
Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo
The Dubai Mall is truly a wonderful mall. Apart from the usual retail stores and food courts and restaurants, this mall is also home to an aquarium and underwater zoo. The entrance of the Dubai Aquarium is a glass tunnel which houses different species of marine beings including sharks, dolphins, sting rays and other fishes.
If you want to do more than walking through the tunnel while viewing the fishes, you can go scuba diving and view these fishes up, close and personal. On the other hand, at the underwater zoo, you would be able to meet some interesting species including otters, Humboldt penguins, piranha, giant spider crabs, caiman crocodiles, lionfish, etc.
Abu Dhabi Corniche
While Abu Dhabi boasts of several tall buildings and beautiful monuments, its crowning glory is definitely the Corniche. Located on the western side of the Emirate city, this place has walking and cycling paths, beaches, park areas and fountains too. It is the ideal place to go jogging, cycling or just for relaxing with your family and friends.
There are several restaurants and cafes on the Corniche where you can have a cup of coffee and enjoy the beautiful sunset in the evening. If you want to take a break from all the sightseeing and shopping you are doing in Abu Dhabi, head for the Corniche to unwind.
Apart from these places, UAE has several other amazing places and activities like the Abu Dhabi Heritage Village, the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, the Al Ain Zoo, Overnight Desert Safari, the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, the Miracle Garden in Dubai, the Sharjah Arts Museum, etc.
