From Burj Khalifa to Palm Jumeirah, here are Dubai's must-see attractions

Dubai is a city that must be seen to be believed. Record-breaking architecture stands alongside traditional quarters, while man-made islands jut out of the coastline. Here are the top places to tick off your sightseeing list when you’re in town.

Bur Khalifa

Bur Khalifa

Discover a truly unique view from the top. Standing 828 metres high, the Burj Khalifa is hard to miss. The world's tallest tower naturally dominates the Dubai skyline, but the true majesty of the building is best appreciated up close or, even better, from inside. On a clear day, the view from the observation deck on level 124 is absolutely stunning, topped only by the view from the luxurious At The Top Sky Lounge on the 148th floor. And for those who would like to linger for a meal in the clouds, At.mosphere on level 122 is the place to be.

Burj Al Arab

Burj Al Arab

Experience royal living in this iconic Dubai landmark One of Dubai’s most famous tourist landmarks, the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah often stands among the top five – if not the absolute peak – of the world’s most iconic hotels. Since its opening in late 1999, the hotel with its distinctive sail-shaped silhouette, has thrust Dubai onto the global luxury tourism landscape. Built on a triangular man-made island reclaimed from the sea, the hotel and its billowing sail-like structure rise 321 metres above the sea, offering panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf.

The Dubai Frame

The Dubai Frame

Dubai's picturesque past, present and future Standing tall, the Dubai Frame is fast becoming one of Dubai's most famous new attractions for visitors and residents alike. Much like the Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab's iconic structures, Dubai Frame's landmark location in Zabeel Park provides sweeping panoramic views of Dubai. At 150m tall and 93m wide with a bridge connecting the two towers, the Dubai Frame has a unique concept to its structure. Resembling a picture frame, Dubai's historic district can be seen to the north while the south provides breathtaking vistas of the city's modern skyline. The city's evolution can be explored throughout the galleries and virtual reality facilities utilising state-of-the-art technology. Dubai Frame lets you experience the past, present and future from the ground to the sky. The brave can step onto the clear 25sqm glass bridge at the structure's cross-frame and peer at the ground beneath them, all while feeling like they're walking on air. Tickets are priced at just AED50 for adults and AED30 for children; those under three go free.

Palm Jumeirah

Palm Jumeirah

A palm-shaped island. A man-made island in the shape of a palm tree - there's a reason why locals say 'only in Dubai.' Palm Jumeirah is one of the largest artificial islands in the world and a triumph of human ingenuity. Locals and tourists alike enjoy the Palm's vast array of high-end hotels, including the Waldorf Astoria, Fairmont, One&Only, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray and, perhaps most notably, the iconic Atlantis, The Palm. And with a monorail running down the 'trunk' that connects to the mainland's tram system, getting there couldn't be easier.
