START YOUR 24 HOURS
HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE
Start your exploration by saying hello to the desert with a Hot Air Balloon Ride. An early morning hot air balloon ride is one of the best way to get a bird’s eye view of the desert, the various oases, the Dubai Heritage Village and the coastline. After the ride, you would be dropped off at the hotel after a delicious continental breakfast.
Once you finish this tour, it’s time to explore the rest of the city.
One of the best ways to see the country if you’re trapped with less time in hands. Sign up and book for a Dubai City Tour in advance so there are no last minute issues. Dubai City Tours are usually well spacious and air-conditioned and the guide is experienced and communicate in multiple languages. You can spend your time witnessing some of the iconic landmarks of Dubai like Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa, The Jumeirah Mosque and many more. If this is your very first time in Dubai, then this tour will definitely be very informative. It’s a 4-hour city tour which will end with lunch.
If you don’t want to opt for a city tour, then you can hire a taxi or a private rental car and explore some of the selective landmarks of the city. Burj Khalifa — The tallest building of the world and the only one dominating the Dubai skyline. Take the 124th Floor tour of the tallest building where the Observation Deck awaits you. The entire highlight of your trip lies right here.
Spare out some time and enjoy the fabulous Dancing Fountain that is constructed on the Dubai Mall lake. Stand in awe and admire the beautifully choreographed water show that begins with music be it Arabic or pop songs and lights. The water dances to all types of tunes. (Timings 1:00pm — 1:30 pm)
Next to the Burj Khalifa is Middle East’s largest mall, Dubai Mall. A place where you can shop all you need. You can also experience the underwater Zoo as well as the Dubai Aquarium which is said to be one of the best in the world.
