The United Arab Emirates has evolved significantly and especially Dubai. In the course of just 10-15 years, they transform the entire map of Dubai. People revisiting in the span of few years couldn’t recognize it. It was modern Architecture at its best. Though there are many spots you can tour in Dubai as it is one of hottest tourist destinations around the world, but here are the top 5 places you should never miss.
The Burj Khalifa or Khalifa tower is known as the Burj Dubai before its inauguration. It is the World’s tallest man-made structure since 2008 till date with a total height of 829.8 m The Tower has a total of 163 floors above ground with 153 usable floors. It has always been one of the most visited tourist destinations since it was created. It has some fine restaurants, offices and residential units and you can also go to the top to have a look. Burj Khalifa never disappoints to fascinate regardless of how many times you have seen it. Living close to Burj Khalifa and seeing it every morning for the past 4 years, I have never got weary of it.
Wild Wadi Water Park
Wild Wadi water park is an outdoor water park in Dubai situated in the area of Jumeirah next to Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach Hotel. It considered being one of the best water parks in the Middle East, having the best waterslides and attractions. It has both heated & cooled wave pool and surfing machines.

The Dubai Fountain
Just like every other architecture in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai Fountain is also the world’s second largest choreographed fountain system set on the 30-acre manmade Burj Khalifa, the center of the Downtown Dubai in Dubai Mall (which is also one of the biggest shopping malls in the world). It was officially inaugurated in May 2009 with the official opening ceremony of The Dubai Mall. Dubai fountain is one of those destinations that tourists don’t miss no matter what if they tour Dubai. The water dance is so wonderfully choreographed that it doesn’t matter how many times you see it, you just can’t get full of it.
