What's the coolest thing you've ever heard of Dubai? Probably the world's tallest building - Burj Khalifa; you might not even know the name of the tower but surely you know that the tallest building in the world is right in Dubai. Today we're gonna show you something more than that, something that you may not even know about until you have actually been there. So not anymore! Read on to find out more so that you are well-prepared for your trip to Dubai!
The Tallest Building in the World - Burj Khalifa
Of course the first thing of Dubai that everyone knows goes to Burj Khalifa, but do you know this world's tallest architecture has also broken six other records? From the highest number of stories (as everybody talks about it) and the highest outdoor observation deck in the world, to the highest occupied floor and the tallest service lift in the world, Burj Khalifa is surely one of the greatest observatory tower with elevators that have the longest travel distance in the world. This tower is over 820 meters, which makes it the tallest building in the world for now until a new one beats it in the coming century.
The Largest Shopping Mall in the World - Dubai Mall
Dubai Mall is definitely the largest shopping mall we've ever been to in our life so far. We spent almost two full days there and we still haven't been to every single corner of it. This place is more than just a shopping mall; it offers the view of Burj Khalifa, and also the world's largest manmade dancing fountain in the world. However, if you are looking for something, make sure you know the exact location or you will just get lost inside a mall...
The Largest Tunnel in an Aquarium in the World - Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo
There's one more thing that you need to know about Dubai Mall: they've also got the largest acrylic panel in the world in Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo where it is located exactly inside the shopping mall. Can you imagine how many things they have fitted inside a mall? Sharks and all different kinds of fish are inside a tank and you will be able to see it without an entrance ticket to the aquarium! But of course, you will see a lot more if you pay for that. Go check it out if you have spare time after a long shopping day!
The Largest Natural Flower Garden in the world - Dubai Miracle Garden
This floral garden is probably the most instagrammable place in Dubai. The most featured attraction inside Dubai Miracle Garden on Instagram is the path called Hearts Passage. Other highlights of the garden are 1:1 Emirates A380 airplane, 12-meter-high bear, castle and all other Disney characters like Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse; everything is covered with natural and colourful flowers. Dubai Miracle Garden really is a miracle to all visitors.
The Biggest Picture Frame in the world - Dubai Frame
You might wonder why Dubai Frame actually exist on earth and what exactly it is here for. It is actually an observatory deck offering a view of Burj Khalifa. So you will actually see the Dubai view inside the frame but not within the frame. We'd recommend this newly open attraction more than Burj Khalifa itself because you'll be able to see the tallest building in the world from far and the entrance ticket is a lot cheaper than Burj Khalifa's.
The First & Largest Glow Park in the World - Dubai Garden Glow
Dubai has every possible thing that everyone once thought it was impossible. This world's first and the largest glow park in Zabeel Park on earth was just amazing. It's nothing like the glow installation we've ever seen in our life. The atmosphere there was just perfect for everyone from friends and family to couples. Make sure your camera is ready and you are all set to go!
