Dubai Visit Visa

The iconic high-rise skylines of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, rimming long sandy shorelines, have made the United Arab Emirates a popular destination for anyone wanting to mix a city break with some beach time.

Landmark tourist attractions such as Dubai's towering Burj Khalifa and Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Mosque and Louvre museum offer sightseeing within easy reach of the city sand.

A host of massive malls have made both cities renowned among shoppers as the best places to visit, and both offer vacationing families plenty of purely fun things to do, with an impressive list of major theme parks.

There's more to the UAE than the contemporary glitz of its two major cities, though. The country's interior of desert and Hajar Mountains are all about big-sky scenery and adventure activities, from 4WD trips across a landscape of rippling dunes to taking on the world's longest zipline over the jagged contours of Jebel Jais.

There's also much more history here than those modern skyscrapers would have you believe. Sharjah and Al Ain are two cities dedicated to promoting Emirati heritage.

1. Burj Khalifa, Dubai

Under places to visit in Dubai, Burj Khalifa is the must visit place. The tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa is also the highest observation deck, and a lift with the longest travel distance. At its top, one can get a scenic and surreal view of entire Dubai. It is described as both “Vertical City” and “A Living Wonder.” The tower apparently took 22 million man hours to build
2. Sheikh Zayed Mosque, Abu Dhabi

Under places to visit in Abu Dhabi, this mosque is must visit. Sheikh Zayed Mosque is the largest place of worship in the UAE covering over 30 acres. It took over a decade to build. It is a key place of worship where traditional architecture meets the exquisite interiors of mosaic, gold, glass, and marble. A visit here is a must on any Abu Dhabi itinerary. With its interiors using lavish amounts of gold, mosaic tiles, and glass work and immense amounts of marble, and its exterior of blindingly white stone contrasting dramatically under the Emirati blue sky, it never fails to dazzle.
3. Palm Jumeirah, Dubai

Palm Jumeirah is an artificial archipelago – a microcosm in itself. It was created by land reclamation, and has a plethora of resorts, like Atlantis and Fairmont Palm, to visit. There is a special monorail connecting the mainland to Palm Jumeirah.
4. Sharjah Art Museum, Sharjah

Museum is the must place to visit in Sharjah. Sharjah Art Museum contains works of art by contemporary artists from the Middle East. It has the most diverse art collection in the UAE. It hosts temporary exhibitions the year round. The museum is recognized for its collection of works by Arabic artists and also for its important pieces by European artists who specialized in painting the Arab world.
5. Al Ain Zoo, Al Ain

Al Ain Zoo is a fantastic place and one of the best places to visit in Al Ain for kids to observe fauna. It was opened in 1969 and features over 4,000 wild animals and birds. The zoo is known for its safari, bird show, and dinosaur trail.
6. Khalifa Park, Abu Dhabi

Khalifa Park is the most popular park in the Emirates. It is a marvel to visit, with a museum, an aquarium, waterfalls, a children’s amusement park, and a train around it.
7. Family Fun at the Theme Parks

In Dubai, Dubai Parks & Resorts offers four major theme parks rolled into one: Motion gate, dedicated to rides themed around Hollywood films; Bollywood ParksLegoland Dubai; and Legoland Water Park. The city is also home to MG Worlds of Adventure with rides, roller coasters, and experiences themed around both Marvel storylines and characters for older kids, and the Cartoon Network for little ones. If you just want to splash about for the day, though, Dubai's Wild Wadi Water Park is your best bet in town. The best water park for older kids and teenagers wanting something more than simply slides is Wadi Adventure in Al Ain.
8. The Dubai's Al Fahidi Quarter

The Al Fahidi quater of Dubai (also known as Bastakia) is the last remaining fragment of Old Dubai and shouldn't be missed. This small heritage area really evokes the simpler, gentler past of the city before skyscrapers took over the skyline. The narrow lanes within the neighborhood are lined with carefully restored traditional buildings in typical Arabian architectural styles, many with the wind tower features, which kept houses cool before air-conditioning became common.
9. Dhow Rides on Dubai Creek

The Burj Khalifa may give you that famous skyline view from up high, but the most iconic Dubai views are still taken from the water. Dubai Creek slices through the city, and the best way to experience Dubai is from one of the beautiful dhows (traditional Arabic boats) that ply the creek. Sunset cruises (which often come with entertainment and dinner) are particularly popular among visitors, as you get to watch the lights of the high-rises begin to twinkle in the dusk.
10. The Khorfakkan Waterfall

The Waterfall is located at a height of 43 meters above sea level and is 45 meters long and 11 meters wide. It consists of a number of windows through which one can see the waters of the waterfall sloping from the top of the cave above to the bottom of the mountain. Additionally, it gives visitors a panoramic view of the Khorfakkan beach. There’s even a restaurant and café that can accommodate more than 80 guests. You can even choose to dine outdoors and enjoy the beautiful views. And the new attraction isn’t just for leisure activities. The Waterfall is also equipped with the latest technologies and has spaces to hold meetings.

Global Village

A look at what's the update for visitors at Global Village this year, which is set to reopens for its 26th season on October 26, 2021.

Senior Manager – Guest Relations at Global Village, said: “As part of this season’s infrastructure upgrades, we have introduced more seating areas, adjusted some of the paths to improve guest movement, improved our main stage experience and much more.”

3. Walkways have been modified to avoid crowding on busier days. This will help ensure smooth flow of visitors between popular outlets and pavilions.

4. The avenue leading to Carnaval will also be home to a new fountain feature.

5. Fiesta Street will introduce more street food kiosks this season.

6. Street entertainment is back.

expo2020 dubai

The brain behind the enormous EXPO2020 Dubai gates is a British-Pakistani architect named Asif Khan

Asif Khan - Brilliantly merged the ancient Mashrabiya design with an ultra-futuristic concept for Expo2020 dubai.

He has designed the award-winning UK pavilion at Astana Expo 2017 and the Hyundai pavilion at the Pyeong Chang 2018 Winter Olympics.

His notable projects include the ‘Mega Faces’ pavilion at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, which won the Cannes Lion Grand Prix for Innovation; the Coca-Cola Beatbox at London 2012 Olympics, a finalist entry in the international competition for the new Guggenheim Museum Helsinki from 1700 anonymous designs; and a Summer pavilion for the Serpentine Gallery in summer 2016.

Khan is basking in the glory of a mission accomplished, which has become a talking point of the 182-day event, whose theme, 'Connecting Minds, Creating the Future', is inextricably linked to his creation.

“It was a challenging task to bring this extraordinary spectacle to life,” he said.

Khan’s team worked with several experts for the Expo2020 dubai gate project.

“We pushed to the absolute limit of structural engineering and science. We approached F1 car engineers, as they deal with carbon fibre, to make it happen. But that did not suffice.

“We then had to work with engineers from the aeronautical industry that deals with carbon fiber components and work with light-weight solar power planes,” he said.

They went the extra mile to ensure that the entry portals would convey the Expo’s vision of history meeting the future.

Besides the Expo2020 dubai gates, other major installations at the venue came from Asif Khan Studios in London.

Khan had been tasked with designing the entire 6km of the Expo’s public realm.

sheikh zayed mosque

Dubai has been ranked as the fifth best city in the world in Resonance Consultancy’s World’s Best Cities Report.

The listing, which has been dubbed “the most comprehensive city ranking on the planet” by Bloomberg, offers an objective look at urban centres with a population of more than one million. It uses a combination of statistical performance and qualitative evaluations, grouped into six core categories.


These include place, which covers the perceived quality of a city’s natural and built environment, including things such as weather, safety, neighbourhoods and landmarks; product, which includes attractions and infrastructure, such as museums and airport connectivity; people, in terms of immigration rate and diversity; programming, which explores a city’s arts, culture, entertainment and culinary scene; prosperity, which refers to its employment opportunities and the number of corporate head offices found there; and promotion, which looks at the number of stories, references and recommendations shared online about a city, including Google Search Results, Google Trends, Facebook Check-ins, Instagram Hashtags and TripAdvisor Reviews.


Resonance acknowledged the effect that the pandemic has had on this year's rankings.

The report reads: “As our cities and borders gradually reopen, it is clear that cities have been changed by the pandemic – in some ways for the better and in others for the worse,” says the report.

Topping the list and claiming first spot was London, swiftly followed by Paris, New York and then Moscow.

But with much more to offer, new innovative restaurants launching, stunning architecture, big plans for entertainment this winter and the big matter of Expo 2020 Dubai we won’t be surprised to see Dubai leap up to top spot in 2022.
