The graceful structure of the Burj al Arab – Tower of the Arabs – is instantly recognisable, its shape mimicking the sail of a ship. At 321, it is the fourth-tallest hotel in the world, and is set on an artificial island out from Jumeirah beach. It offers ‘seven star’ luxury, with a fleet of white Rolls-Royces on the forecourt and dancing fountains in the foyer.
It may be hot outside, but that doesn’t rule out skiing in Dubai. This large indoor ski resort at the Mall of the Emirates uses 6,000 tons of snow and features five runs that vary in difficulty, height and gradient. The longest run being 400m with a fall of over 60m. Snowboarders can practice their stunts in the Freestyle Zone.
This beautiful mosque is a much-photographed landmark, especially when lit up against an evening sky It’s the only Dubai mosque to open its doors to non-Muslims, and visitors here can sweep aside the veil of Islam to witness the real face of the country’s religion.
Tip: Most unusually, photography inside the mosque is allowed, so it’s worth packing a camera.
This 4.5 hectare lush tropical setting is modelled carefully on dolphins’ natural habitat. There are three vast lagoons where students can meet the dolphins through a choice of interactions. From holding hands to playing ball, or just observing them at play.
Tip: Dolphin Bay passes include same day access to Aquaventure Waterpark and the hotel’s private beach.
A visit here will excite gaming fans, or those seeking an adrenaline buzz. A large, indoor theme park at The Dubai Mall, it features nine thrilling rides and more than more than 250 games, including cutting-edge motion simulators and virtual experiences. Students can rock out at the Guitar Hero arcade or try the terrifying House of the Dead 4.
