    The Dubai mall was a great place to look around, with a variety of shops/attractions. It has its very own aquarium, waterfalls, China Town, etc. The location was also great; right next to the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. However, the only issue was how crowded it was despite its size.

    The best hotel we have stayed in across the globe. You can instantly see why this is referred to as the most luxurious hotel in the world. We stayed for a few nights and didn’t want to leave. The pool area was amazing, service outstanding and the room was stunning. We stayed in the 2 bedroom family suite which was perfect for our family. The room was so large spread across 2 floors. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

    After visiting Burj Khalifa in the early morning, we went to Dubai Mall Aquarium. It opens at 10 AM and makes sure you visit at that time to avoid the crowd at the famous tunnel so that you can take a lot of pictures and videos. This famous tunnel can be viewed from outside as well in case you don’t want to spend any money. Apart from this tunnel, there is a separate level for zoo where you can witness many other animals and fishes. Penguins would be the highlight here. One can spend extra bucks on different activities like feeding the fishes, greet or meet with penguins or sharks. The base price of ticket costs close to 3k INR and you can club it with other attractions online to get some discount.

    Mall of the Emirates compared to places in Canada was unbelievable. So many stores and the options to have fun like indoor skiing was incredible.

    Such a cool and fun place to visit!
    We started off by meeting the penguins and learning all about them which was followed by is taking pictures and able to strike them.
    We then got to wonder through the Northe pole before meeting the main man himself. This was followed by Hot chocolate.
    We then got to experience all the rides such as the bobsled and the ski lifts, whilst the children had a ski lesson.

    the instructors were so helpful since the beggining of the course. They thought us everything before going into to the water and made us feel safe. Also, when we were in the water they were always checking us and helping in every move. The underwater experience was amazing. We loved it a lot. I think everyone should consider trying it.

    We had a wonderful experience on the tour. Our guide Ahmed was very educational and answered everyone's questions. It really highlighted how many things we all have in common across all cultures. I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Dubai, even if they only have a few days here. We had read that we needed to arrive 30 minutes early but we only arrived 10 minutes early for the 2 PM session and we're still able to join without a problem.

    My spouse and I recently explored the Dubai Frame, an experience I can only describe as phenomenal. Picture a colossal golden frame, gleaming and regal in its stature. Ascending to the top offers a breathtaking perspective that seamlessly merges Dubai's historic charm with its modern-day splendor, akin to a journey through time. And here's a thrilling detail: there's a glass floor that gives you the exhilarating sensation of floating above the city! It's absolutely astonishing. Should you find yourself in Dubai, the Dubai Frame is an attraction you simply can't miss. It's an absolute highlight!

    Such an incredible experience with my children. They loved it and can't wait to go back. All the galleries are meticulously planned to deliver the most captivating and enjoyable play experience for children. I loved how it is designed to let children use their critical thinking and problem solving skills in such a fun filled environment. The staff were highly competent and addressed my children by their name thanks to the name label they got upon entry. I asked my son what his favourite part was and he replied " all of it!!". Thank you for an unforgettable day. We hope to visit again soon.

    You want to switch to another mood from Dubai? Head straight to this Sikh temple! Though clearly the only non Indians, we were very well welcomed, after washing hands and wearing some sort of bandana... Temple is so relaxing and bringing inner peace. Just sitting for a while was like recharging batteries. When leaving the temple, no taxis in sight, but again the Indians there were so helpful, and indeed a bus from the community drove all of us without a car to the near Ibn Battuta mall - free of charge mind you.
    Thanks to all the people behind this, bless them all.

    Good little museum, we visited one morning as part of a Dubai City tour we had booked. Quite small, but it provided an inside of how houses were in old Dubai in years gone by. We didn’t spend much time there but worth a visit if you’re passing.
