A trip to Dubai isn't just a trip to another land but a trip to the future. Towering skyscrapers, epic shopping centres and innovative hotels will make you feel you've travelled in time. Bigger truly is better here as the city is home to the world's tallest building and biggest shopping mall. You'll never get bored here as some of the world's best shopping, dining and attractions are found only in Dubai. Dubai offers the same range of activities and sights you'd find on a city break with the sunshine and fun of beach holiday. Its the perfect way to experience both types of holidays on one getaway.
You can't visit Dubai without taking advantage of the stunning views the city's skyscrapers offer. Families and thrill-seekers should be sure to spend a day (or two) at one of the world's best waterparks Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark. The park boasts 11 pools, 30 rides including the Leap of Faith where you'll take a 27.5-metre plunge into a tube surrounded by exotic fish and fearsome sharks! There is also the chance to visit an aquarium that a staggering 65,000 creatures call home and even meet sea lions and dolphins up close! If you still want more thrills, then a visit to Ferrari Land is a must! If you ever wanted to know what it feels like to be in the driver's seat of a Ferrari here is your chance! Ride the Formula Rossa, the world's fastest roller coaster which reaches an incredible speed of 240 km/h. There are also plenty of experiences that allow children and adults to experience the feeling of driving a Ferrari. If this isn't enough to keep you occupied Dubai also offers plenty of world-class golf courses, plenty of watersports and opportunities to experience the desert from horse, camel or quad bike.
