The City of Gold is known the world over for being a place of great possibilities. It has been touted as the city where the impossible becomes possible. If you compare how it looked like 50 years ago to what it looks like now, you’ll be astonished by the massive progress the economic capital of the UAE has gone through.
What's more, Dubai doesn't show any signs of stopping as far as developments go. Ingenious concepts continue to keep coming into fruition here. This is one of the reasons why it has risen to be a top tourist destination in the last ten years. And speaking of being a top tourist destination, there's a great abundance of choices, particularly for the gals.
So, if you are planning a trip to Dubai with your favorite gaggle of girlfriends, we have listed below some of the best places to visit where you all can have fun, from the most iconic landmarks to all the best views via a fantastic seaplane tour of Dubai.
1. The Gold Souk
Ladies who love some bling should indulge in some retail therapy and visit the Gold Souk in Dubai. This place shines with all types of high-quality gold jewellery — most of which you can get at a great price.
You can even purchase gold bars and bullion here for much cheaper than other places in the world because Dubai doesn't impose tax on gold.
2. The Dubai Creek
Include a dinner cruise into your girls' trip, and you can join one when you go to the Dubai Creek. Book the program online and explore the birthplace of the city's earliest industries, which are fishing and pearl diving.
As you lazily cruise along the creek, you and your friends can enjoy a gourmet meal. Plus, there's entertainment on the boat to make the cruise an even more luxurious experience.
3. The Desert Dunes
No trip to Dubai is complete without a trip to the desert dunes. There are so many activities laid out for tourists in this location. You and your girls can try sand surfing for the first time, and it's bound to be a blast. Or, you can experience the most thrilling ride of your life riding a 4x4 that bashes through the steep climbs and dips of the dune.
If you're not working with a tight schedule for the trip, why not sign up for a desert safari tour package? This offers not just a tour of the desert but a collection of exciting experiences, as well. If you set out in the morning, you can watch the sunrise in a hot air balloon. And, if you opt to explore later in the day, the tour will conclude at a banquet that will introduce you to traditional Emirati dishes and exotic treats, such as camel meat and milk.
4. The Burj Khalifa
As one of the most luxurious buildings in the world, the Burj Khalifa is not just a place to stay (because of the Armani Hotel inside of it and residential apartments), it's also one to explore. It is one of the most Instagrammable places in the world, and you can view sunsets twice in a day here because it's so tall — just on different floors.
On top of those, the Burj Khalifa has coffee shops and restaurants, as well as souvenir shops since a lot of people go up to the observation deck.
Those are just five of your best destination options. The great thing about them is every place offers a range of unique experiences.
