Top 5 travel tips in Dubai

Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest skyscraper since 2009 with 828 metres high. For an interesting perspective of the city, take an abra (water taxi) and ride along Dubai Creek. You can't miss the opportunity to go up to the 148th floor to take in the spectacular views of the old city, the great harbour, the residential coastal areas, the 300 man-made islands of World Island, The Palms, Downtown and the Persian Gulf.

Get away from the hassle of the urban area and ride a mountain bike along any of the trails or just have fun rolling down the hills inside a giant transparent ball. Welcome to your next adventure!

3. Taste the Emirati food

Aseelah is a fine dining venue in the heart of Old Dubai where you can sample a classic samak, combining European touches and incredible presentation or a delicious poached Arabian lobster with a fennel salad and some herbed pilaf. At Logma you can have authentic Arab Khaleeji cuisine. Try the Emirati pancakes chebab, or the flatbreads khameer or the succulent Emiraty-style chicken and rice. Order some grilled saffron prawns or a Lebanese milk pudding called mouhalabiya drizzled with the 24K gold honey!

Spend some quality time with your loved one in a romantic setting where you will create new memories that will last a lifetime.
