1. Burj Khalifa
Dubai's landmark building is the Burj Khalifa, rising 829.8 meters it is the tallest building in the world and the most famous of the city's points of interest. For most visitors, a trip to the observation deck on the 124th floor here is a must-do while in the city. Marvel views across the city skyline from this bird's-eye perspective are simply staggering. The smooth observation deck experience includes a multimedia presentation on both Dubai and the building of the Burj Khalifa (completed in 2010) before high-speed elevator whizzes you up to the observation deck for those 360-degree views out across the skyscrapers to the desert on one side and the ocean on the opposing side.
The nightlife is particularly popular with photographers due to Dubai's famous city-lights panoramas. Buy your Burj Khalifa "At the Top" Entrance Ticket in advance to avoid long line-ups, especially if you are planning to visit on a weekend.
Back on the ground, wrapping around the Burj Khalifa, are the building's beautifully designed gardens, with winding walkways. There are plenty of water features including the Dubai Fountain, the world's tallest performing fountain, modeled on the famous Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas.

Dubai's excellent museum is at the heart of the Al-Fahidi Fort, built-in 1787 to safeguard Dubai Creek. The fort's walls are assembled out of traditional coral blocks and held together with lime. The upper floor is supported by wooden poles, and the ceiling is constructed from palm fronds, mud, and plaster.
In its colorful history, the fort has served as a home for the ruling family, a seat of government, garrison, and prison. Restored in 1971, and extensively in 1995. It is now the city's leading museum. The entrance has a captivating exhibition of old maps of the Emirates and Dubai, showing the mammoth expansion that hit the region after the oil boom.
The courtyard is home to several traditional boats and a palm-leaf house with an Emirati wind tower. The right-hand hall features weaponry, and the left-hand hall showcases Emirati musical instruments. Below the ground floor are display halls with exhibits and dioramas covering various aspects of traditional Emirati life (including pearl fishing and Bedouin desert life), as well as artifacts from the 3,000- to 4,000-year-old graves at Al Qusais archaeological site.
