Two days are not enough to visit the whole Dubai, but you can take a tour through various stages captive. Here's our proposal.
Small town of Bedouin merchants, Dubai has become in less than 20 years, a metropolis of the most modern and cosmopolitan cities in the world, thanks not only to oil reserves (95% of the oil emirates belongs to Abu Dhabi) but the far-sighted vision of commercial development , financial and tourist Emir Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Two days are not enough to see everything, we have selected the must try to make varied our itinerary.
First day in Dubai
From modern airport-Sheik Al-Maktoum reach with the new subway the World Trade Center. Deposited the backpacks at the Hotel Ibis (discounted to 75 € buffet breakfast) we start to explore the city by walking parallel to Sheikh Zayed Road, the main artery of Dubai. We remain fascinated by the skyline with the twin Emirates Towers or the thin profile of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world (828 meters 180 plans) stands impressively in the sky. We recommend the ascent with the lift from the Food Court of the Dubai Mall splashing at 64 km / h "At the top", the roof terrace of the 124th floor (cost 400 Aed, "only" 125 if booked via internet).
How to stop at the Dubai Mall, the largest shopping center in the world, it is hard to say. It's not just shopping with 1200 shops, but an entertainment center with more than 160 bars and restaurants, the world's largest suspended aquarium, playground Sega Republic, the ice skating rink, a cinema with 22 screens ... If this not enough just a few steps away is the Souk Al-Bahar, elegant Arabic with another 100 shops and 22 restaurants. But the main attraction of the complex remains the Dubai Fountain with the light show and sound course record, particularly impressive in the evening.
