Habibi, Come to Dubai!

In search of most unique cities of the world, my untreatable wanderlust made me land on the Futuristic City of United Arab Emirates that is Dubai. This city is every traveler’s dream. Dubai offers us historic sights, futuristic architecture, active night life and out-of-this-world attractions. Dubai is well known for its skyline which is full of unique skyscrappers and out of which attracted me the most is the building which holds the Guiness World Record for being the tallest building of the world yes none other than Burj Khalifa also which is a home to hotels and restaurants and is a ideal place to watch sunset. I lived Dubai's historic life where I experienced how people in Dubai lived before the city actually boomed. I witnessed the greatest cultural diversity in the world as 85% of Dubai's population are expats. This level of cultural diversity is not present anywhere in the world. You all have seen or experienced natural islands but Dubai is at whole new level whilst the islands are concerned as in my trip to Dubai I also covered the man-made or artificial Island Palm Jumeirah which has its own significance as inspired by the Dubai's traditional Palm tree, this island is shaped like a massive Palm tree facing towards the ocean. My love for flowers took me to see millions of flowers and plants at one place and this place absolutely matches with its so called name that is Miracle Garden. I am pretty sure when you will come here and see 50 millions flowers and 250 millions plants, you all will get hypnotised in its magic of colors. From budget hotels to most expensive hotel in the world Dubai has it all, Visiting Dubai !.... how can I forget to include Burj Al Arab in my itinerary the most luxurious sightseeing I have ever witnessed in my life. I planned my Dubai trip in a way in which I can cover all the major tourist attractions but I failed as Dubai has so much to offer. This is why I penned down a quote for all the travellers in the world who are plannning to visit Dubai in coming times. The more I try to travel Dubai, the more it is remained to be travelled. But Still I managed to figured it out the best places in Dubai which should be in everyone's travel itinerary for Dubai trip and which if you guys follow I am pretty sure you will cover the most out of it and later take home the best memories of your life that are associated with your "Trip to Dubai".

MORNING/PALM JUMEIRAH The Palm Jumeirah is one of the most iconic attractions of Dubai. Known to be the biggest manmade island in the world, the Palm Jumeirah is shaped in the form of a palm tree. Each of the 16 fronds of the palm island is home to luxurious hotels, beautiful villas, high-end boutiques and malls, pristine beaches, etc. Moreover, there is the Hotel Atlantis the Palm, which is the crowning glory of the island. The View is the observation deck on the 52nd floor of the Palm Tower, next to Nakheel Mall.

Before you take the 3 minutes journey up to the deck, you can visit the interactive museum and gallery that will tell you the story about the creation of the Palm Jumeirah. Once you reach the deck, you get to see a 360o view of the Palm Jumeirah, the Dubai skyline and the Arabian Gulf


TANDEM SKYDIVE - Straight from Hotel's room to Plane's Window it took me no time to step into my dream life, inspired by the movie Point Break 2015 I was all set to touch the sky above Palm Jumeirah via Tandem Skydiving. From 13000 feet with the wind blowing my face the best angle of bird eye view to see the entire Plam Tree spreading its fronds with an outside land barrier encircling the tree .

A tandem skydive is the quickest and easiest way to experience the thrill of freefall at over 120 miles per hour, while securely harnessed to one of our experienced and accomplished instructors. Adrenaline enthusiasts can live this adventure at our two world-class locations, the Palm Dropzone and the Desert Dropzone. Located within the city of Dubai, the highlight of a tandem experience at Palm Dropzone is the stunning view of the iconic Palm Jumeirah island. Not to mention other landmarks such as the World Islands, Ain Dubai and the Burj al Arab.

I Enjoyed the unbeatable views of Pal Jumeirah and the surrounding landmarks from the observation deck of The View at the Palm After sightseeing from the clouds ,I hop on the Palm Monorail for a stunning transit to my next destination. Dubbed as the ‘Gateway to Atlantis’, the Palm Monorail is the first of its kind in the Middle East. It takes visitors across 1,000 meters of the Arabian Gulf and stops by famous Dubai attractions like Golden Mile Galleria, Al Ittihad Park, Nakheel Mall, and Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark.

BURJ AL ARAB

ON DAY 3 I VISITED - BURJ AL ARAB, MIRACLE GARDEN & GLOBAL VILLAGE

MORNING/BURJ AL ARAB - Visiting Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is undoubtedly one of the best experienc of my life. The most famous landmarks and tourist attractions in Dubai, and is renowned for its 'seven-star status'. The luxury record-breaking all-suite hotel includes a range of fine-dining restaurants, incredible beaches and the expansive BuriAl Arab Terrace.

Since its opening in 1999, the Burj Al Arab has played host to a covetable guest list of VIPs and celebrities from all over the world, helping put Dubai on the global luxury tourism map. Built on its own island, the sail-shaped building rises 321m, providing guests with amazing room views of the Arabian Gulf.

One of the best hotels in the world With gold interiors, lavish suites and some of the city's best restaurants, it's no surprise the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is often considered among the best places to stay in Dubai, alongside many five-star hotels.

Throughout their time here, guests experience why it is often regaled as a 'seven-star' hotel. Before leaving the premises, they even receive a mesmerising farewell at the recently renovated Exit Lobby. which features a bespoke spiral chandelier - created by Czech design company Sans Souci, the glittering centrepiece comprises 1210 crystal tubes and weighs around 450kg.



AFTERNOON/MIRACLE GARDEN - Took the most delightful trip to the most beautiful garden in the world . The Miracle Garden was launched on Valentine's Day in 2013. The garden occupies over 72,000 sq. m, making it the largest natural flower garden in the world featuring over 50 million flowers and 250 million plants. The flowers are maintained by re-use of treated wastewater through a drip irrigation method with an average amount of 757,082 liters of water per day. Seeing the garden in full bloom with its 150 million flowers arranged in colorful arches and patterns, and the myriad shapes they form, are truly magnificent.

The place includes distinctive models of some of the most popular establishments around in Dubai. The models change shape and even have suitable lighting to make them even more beautiful. The Hill Top, Butterfly Passage, Big Teddy Bear, Lake Park, Floral Clock, Heart Passage, and Floral Castle are the key attractions at the Dubai Miracle Garden. In 2015, the authorities opened the Dubai Butterfly Garden and sanctuary for over 15,000 butterflies from 26 species here. This is the world's largest and the region's first indoor butterfly garden. As part of a licensing deal between the Dubai Miracle Garden and The Walt Disney Company, a topiary of Mickey Mouse was unveiled in February 2018. Flower structures of Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto, Daisy Duck, Donald Duck, and Huey, Dewey, and Louie were installed later that year. Other attractions in the park include a floral clock, peacocks, and an aromatic garden.

The Dubai Miracle Garden's breathtaking landscaping has earned two Guinness World Records for the largest vertical garden in 2013 and the world's largest floral sculpture forming the shape of an Airbus A380 in 2016. The garden opens from November to April and remains closed from May to October due to high temperatures.

EVENING/GLOBAL VILLAGE - A world without borders. A world where more than 90 cultures come together to celebrate wonder. A world where new and exciting can be found around every corner, where colours, flavours and experiences blend into one magnificent cultural melting pot.

a world without borders. Global Village is one of Dubai’s most popular evening entertainment destinations. A combination of festival and theme park staged on the edges of Dubai, it opens yearly between November and April and takes visitors on a virtual world tour with replica international architecture, cultural zones, food pavilions, shows, rides, and markets. I enjoyed diversified shopping here and I would say its a paradise for shopping lovers, later the music fest and concerts sets my mood on fire !


I was literally on the top of the world in my entire Dubai Trip. Every place and I the vibes I get there was unique and one of its kind. Visiting the world’s largest building – Burj Khalifa made me feel like I am on the top of the world. The bird’s eye view of Palm Island while Skydive was surreal and majestic. From Dubai Mall to Miracle Garden and then Global Village, each and every destination of Dubai is a heaven for every Traveller. As every traveller seeks to experience something new and different so here I must say "Dubai got it all" also I am pretty sure after your Dubai trip you are going to chant this forever "Habibi, Come to Dubai" and visit Dubai again and again in your life.
