Dubai is a city of record-breaking architecture, man-made islands and traditional quarters. You must see the country for yourself to believe it. If you are planning to visit Dubai, here are our 2 of our top picks of where you should go:
Wild Wadi Waterpark
A place where you can enjoy different water rides is in Wild Wadi Waterpark where you can enjoy around 30 water rides and play areas can be found. Thrill-seekers can slide down Tantru Alley while those who just want to relax can glide along the lazy river. There are also a couple of moderate slide options that kids can enjoy and the Wipeout and Riptide surfing ride which adults can try. Travellers of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers will definitely enjoy this waterpark.
Gold and Spice Souks
Dubai is and has been a top place of trade for many years now. If you want to learn how commerce was like before, a stroll through souks or bazaars is your solution. The Gold Souk is located in the Deira where you will find different displays of necklaces, bracelets and earrings from around 300 stores. The Gold bazaar is one of the most popular gold jewellery trading centres in the world. In fact, almost 20 per cent of the world’s gold comes through this place. Aside from gold, you can also buy diamonds, silver and platinum. And because the government tightly controls the selling of gold and other expensive metal, you are guaranteed that you will not be getting a counterfeit and you get through value for your money.
