This stunning architecture portrays a metaphorical connection between the old and new city. The Dubai frame is said to be the largest picture frame in the world, a giant structure of a gold frame standing 500 feet tall with striking glass lifts that take tourists to the top. Tourists are allowed to walk on the clear glass walkway across the entire 313-foot width.

Burj Khalifa

At the heart of the city, this tallest freestanding structure in the world shouldn't be missed by any chance. The interesting part is you can go to the top observation deck on the 124th floor to enjoy the aerial view of the city from such a height.

Global Village

This is a theme park that can not only entertain a little kid, but also a man in his sixties. This massive park is very popular among people and is considered the ideal destination for a family day out. Filled with concerts, dining, attractions, and rides around the world, it’s the perfect place to spend a great time with your friends and family members.

Even though its height is much lower than the Burj Khalifa, the Burj Al-Arab is the tallest hotel in the world at a height of 321 metres. Situated in its dedicated island, this architectural marvel reflects the traditional dhow in full sail. Dhow is a kind of merchant ship operating around the emirate for centuries now. At nightfall, it becomes a kaleidoscope of colours – a must-watch for someone visiting Dubai for the first time.
