Do you know which is the tallest building in the world? The one which you see in the picture, "Burj Khalifa". It has got 163 floors and it took almost 6 years for construction.

Every tent has got the specialty of that particular country. For instance, the tent of India will have clothes famous in India, Indian food, Indian sweet and various other things from India. And you can even bargain for things sold there.
"Global Village" has also got specific area where various activities takes place like: Group Dancing, Singing, various acts performed by trained people.

3. Desert Safari
Your trip to U.A.E will be incomplete if you don't visit Deserts. " Desert Safari" means a trip to Desert. Various tours provide pickup and drop down facility. You cant take your own vehicle in Desert.
Tours have package for "Desert Safari". A trip will be for 4-5 hours. This include pick up, dune bashing, free camel ride, motor bike riding ( this is not included in tour package), free snack, free dinner, various dance shows, belly dance and finally drop down.
I have visited once to this place, and I must say that its worth visiting. You will surely enjoy this place.
4. Jumeirah Beach
There are many beaches in Dubai, but Jumeirah beach is the most famous one. If you are planning to visit any beaches of Dubai, make sure that it is not during summer time. Because the sand will be very hot and you will not be able to enjoy much.
5. Mall of Emirates
"Mall of Emirates" is one of the famous mall of U.A.E.. It is famous for its vastness and interior. It has got beautiful huge dome in the center, and because of that It is center of attraction for tourist.People from all over the world come to visit this awesome place.
It has got one most exciting place in the mall, which is called "SKI DUBAI". Ski Dubai is a place which has got artificially created snow. As it is very hot in Dubai, people there has never ever experience snow. So ski Dubai has made it possible for Emirates to experience snow in U.A.E.. Ski Dubai has also got various rides and slides for childrens and adults.
It has got tons of shop for purses, clothes, shoes, baby wear, gents wear ladies wear, perfumes, Abayas, hijabs and much more.
After you finish your shopping, there is food court where you can have the food of your choice.The main reason why I like U.A.E. is because of the variety of food I get here. The food courts in U.A.E. offer various cuisines : Indian, Chinese, Thai, Malaysian, Pakistani. Vegetarian etc..People just enjoy eating here.
