We also went to the Dubai Museum located inside the Al Fahidi Fort. the most mesmerizing sight in Dubai was Dubai Aquarium and the Underwater Zoo.

We relaxed by watching the traditional Tandora performance that mesmerized us. We also enjoyed the convenient roundtrip transportation from the hotel.

The world’s tallest building pierces the sky at 828m and opened in January 2010, six years after excavations began. To avoid wait times or expensive fast-track admission, our travel agent helped us book tickets online as far as 30 days in advance.

Less than an hour from the city, on our 3rd day we went to the Dubai Desert that is a natural playground for adventurous travelers.
