Away from the soft, white sandy beaches, you will find that there is an abundance of sights to see and things to do. A visit to the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building and Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping complex tops the list for most visitors, but there are so many other incredible experiences to take in that good planning is a must. The Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain Zoo, Ski Dubai, Dubai Creek, the Gold Souk, Dubai Canal and the Palm are just a few of the more popular land-based attractions. On the water, your choices include Dhow Cruising, Deep Sea Fishing, Sunset Cruises and a whole host of watersports, including Jet Skiing, Paddle Boarding, Flyboarding and Kite Surfing. Wondering if there is much to do away from the beach? Think again!
