    We went to Dubai for my 50th birthday. Whoever chooses the music gave me an incredible gift twice. Because I am a lover of bel canto, on my birthday Turandot's Nessun Dorma (L. Pavarotti) came on and I had the most beautiful possible emotionally charged water fountain. It was better than fireworks. Before leaving, my husband and I went to look once more and we got to the water fountain on the boat and the music Con te partiro (S.Brightman and A.Bocelli) started. It was unforgettable, as if Dubai wished us a happy journey home

    Views were amazing especially as a clear day.
    Didn't book in advance as last time in Dubai it was very hazy. Took a chance walked up to the ticket desk just before midday - all sold nothing available until 15.00. Don't forget to bring your Emirates boarding card for 20% discount Took that, turned up at 14.30 and went straight in. Some queuing for the 3 lifts in operation but well managed.
    Avoid the expensive "At the Top" ticket desk in the Emirates Mall another 23 floors higher observation deck for an extra 200+AED per person.
    Seems to be no restriction on how long you stay but no seats.

    Amazing waterpark. Seemingly unlimited amount of rides and waiting times are not that bad. Definitely do the Blackout ride! We had a great afternoon with my girlfriend here. I imagine it is amazing to spend a full day here with family. I recommend buying a ticket including the aquarium.

    Went to check out miracle garden after seeing good things. I was not disappointed. Went in the afternoon -weather was mild so it was nice to talk around. It was very busy and as one would expect, many people looking to get that perfect Instagram photo so sometimes it could get frustrating when people kept checking their pics and then taking more! The displays are really beautiful - a lot of colour. In the centre is Smurf Village - not sure of the link but it's well done. The Emirates plane covered in flowers is really nice. I didn't partake in any of the extras - photo opp for 150 AED (more expensive than the entry fee), dress up in Arabian dress, etc. There were lots of places to sit and chill and have some food and drink. In terms of location, it's fairly far out but I took the bus from Mall of Emirates and it was about 20 mins. Better the bus than an expensive taxi.

    Interesting tour on the history of UAE. Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable and friendly. Great to see more culture of Dubai rather than the modern. Great tour to do recommended.

    I wasn't sure how much "real skiing" we'd get but it is a fairly good practice hill! We had so much fun! It is a novelty, sure, but worth it. It was really fun!

    It should be noted that we were colder than we'd thought. I suggest bringing real ski gloves instead of using the ones they provided. It is also worth signing your waiver and booking all of your gear in advance. That was a major time saver.

    The staff is really nice and they keep a close watch on safety protocol. Go if you can!

    Highly priced attraction that we had higher expectations on. However, experienced went from 5/10 to 10/10 thanks to Rheymarie who gave us really interesting information about everything, she was very well educated of all the spieces in the aquarium and tought us a lot about all the different fishes. Big thanks to Rheymarie for making our experience great.

    The Dubai Frame is an architectural landmark in Dubai, UAE, offering panoramic views of the city's contrasting old and new areas. Standing at 150 meters tall, it's shaped like a giant picture frame and is located in Zabeel Park. Visitors can enjoy views of the historic district to the north and the modern skyline to the south from its observation decks. The structure also features an immersive museum highlighting Dubai's transformation from a fishing village to a global metropolis. Overall, the Dubai Frame provides a unique perspective on the city's past, present, and future.
