In 2010 Dubai made headlines when it opened the tallest building on earth, the Burj Khalifa, at the cost of US$1.5 billion. The structure rises 828 metres, and visitors can take the lift to the observation deck on Level 124. With the tower's construction came a redevelopment of the downtown Dubai area creating numerous entertainment options for locals and travellers alike. An ice rink, aquarium, Sega republic and Kidzania are just some of the attractions to keep families amused.

There is loads to do in Dubai, from dune bashing to yellow boat rides, to the Yaz Waterparks. There is something for everyone and all ages. The Burj Khalifa, The Burj Al Arab, Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates, Dubai Creek, Souks of Deira, and Jumeirah Beach are the top sights and attractions in Dubai.Dubai: PromenadeThe Promenade
