Dubai is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations and for quite a good reason. The mega-urban empire offers unparalleled grandeur and luxuries, and if you haven’t felt inspired at least once, you are doing something wrong.
This list of unique things Dubai has to offer is long for sure. From the world’s longest zip line to the man-made archipelago (Palm Jumeirah), there are many things to see and do that you won’t find anywhere else.
Here is a roundup of some of the coolest and mind-blowing things Dubai has to offer.
1. X-line Zip Line
Dubai offers the world’s longest urban zip line, which covers an area of 1km. Starting from the Amwaj Tower, the ride ends at Dubai Marina Mall. Whether you thrive on some adventure or just like to have new experiences worldwide, this one is not to be missed. The zip line also glides 170 meters over the sea level and achieves an average speed of 80km/hour.
The two concurrent zip lines can accommodate almost 16 people per hour. The zip line gives some fascinating views while passing through the Dubai marina.
2. Floating Hotels
Enjoy some of the scenic views in Dubai’s floating hotels while figuratively standing on the waves, and the experience is something you can find nowhere else in the world.
Home to some of the most prominent skyscrapers, Dubai has abundant finest architectural sites. With artificial islands, it is no wonder that Dubai offers floating resorts, hotels, and villas for a fantastic experience over water.
3. The Heart-Shaped Lake
The heart-shaped love lake near Al-Qudra might be man-made, but it doesn’t make it any less than spectacular. The two intertwining lakes form a heart if seen from an aerial view.
Following the waterline, ‘Love’ is written alongside the lake with the help of vegetation at a massive scale. Even if you are not a swimmer, visiting this place is recommended as you can take a stroll alongside the lake and enjoy some heartfelt views of the scenery and flora. If nothing for you seems romantic enough, this one sure takes the award home for the most heart-warming location for lovers.
4. City Land Mall
Inspired by nature, the City Mall is the world’s first nature-inspired shopping mall. It covers an area of a whopping 1.2 million sq ft. The mall offers nature-inspired shopping experiences with more than 300 retail outlets. And if that is not enough to keep you on your toes, the mall offers more than 70 different restaurants and cafes, making the experience more wholesome.
Planning a movie night? then look no further because it offers one of a kind cinematic experience with more than ten screens enough to keep the guests entertained.
5. World’s Highest Rope Climbing and Observation Wheel
One of the legs of Ain Dubai offers the world’s highest rope climbing platform. It is about 150 meters tall. The rope climbing platform offers a unique interaction for adventure seekers. The climbers will be supervised to ensure safety.
The centrepiece of the man-made Bluewater Island, Ain Dubai also offers the world’s largest and tallest observation wheel, with a height of more than 210m. The giant wheel will have a capacity of 1900 passengers, so if you are looking for a great adventure, you know where to start.
