The 22 best sights in Dubai – descriptions, photos, map

Dubai’s top sights – Top 15 must-see places to see in Dubai

(!) Before you travel, be sure to familiarize yourself with the rules for entering the UAE during the coronavirus.

Most of the following attractions in Dubai are its symbols, so as much as the sophisticated tourist would love to see something special, the experience won’t be the same without these symbols. So in a way, this is a classic selection. You can spend the first few days in the main tourist attractions in Dubai and the next few days in the desert, the colorful shows and attractions or the neighboring emirates.

Sights to see in Dubai

Below is not just a list, but a whole review of the places worth seeing in Dubai that are a must-see. In addition to photos and descriptions of each attraction, I have detailed where it is located, how to get to it, and when you can visit it. I also pointed out the prices of admission tickets and shared tips on how and where we get them at discounted prices.

1. the Burj Khalifa.

The famous Dubai “rocket” soaring into the sky has not yet been surpassed in the title of “the tallest building in the world,” although the tower was completed back in 2010. In today’s race of high-rises, when architectural masterpieces get taller and taller every year, being in first place for ten years means something.

Sightseeing in Dubai and prices

There is an observation deck at the top, overlooking the whole of Dubai, the Persian Gulf and the desert. This is a great opportunity to see one of the most developed megacities in the world from a bird’s eye view.

Getting there: Take the Metro to Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall station (red line, please use the overpass for easy access) or bus lines 27, 28, 29, 50 and 81 to the Dubai Mall stop behind Dubai Mall. Opening hours: every day from 12:00 to 15:00 and from 19:00 to 21:00, all weekends. How much it costs: in a booking office and on the official site $30 for adults and $17 for children (4-12 years old) but online on the Kluck the same tickets cost $27 and $15 respectively.

2. Palm Jumeirah.

The world-famous man-made palm-shaped island is undeniably eye-catching even for those who find it hard to surprise anything in principle. It is better to look at the spreading branches of palm trees from a height, for this purpose there are helicopter flights around Dubai which cost from $126.

What to see in Dubai first Top sights

An easier way to see Palm Jumeirah Island is to get to it by water during a boat ride for $23, or take the monorail to the Hotel Atlantis, which is visible at the very top. Only guests are allowed to enter the hotel – rooms cost from $300 per day, but the water park at the hotel is available to absolutely everyone, and the prices are humane – only from $26.

How to get there: by cab or by monorail, which goes along the “trunk” of the island-palma every 15 minutes, the tickets are sold at the booking office at the station for cash. Hours of operation: the island is available 24 hours a day, but the monorail runs from 9:00 to 22:00 hours, the water park is open daily from 10:00 to 18:00. How much is it: at the box office Atlantis Aquaventure Water Park ticket costs $ 30, but you can buy online for $ 26. Russian tour operators together with a transfer take for $ 100.

3. Burj Al Arab

“The Arabian Sail, although not the highest in the world, is the only seven-star hotel on the planet. The level of luxury and comfort in it is just off the scale. Of course, to pass by the true symbol of Dubai is inadmissible.

Because of sanctions Booking.com, Agoda and other foreign sites are gone.

For booking accommodation now you have to use only Russian hotel databases. We use service Hotelukwhich searches for rooms in all available hotels around the world, and also helps to find the best price by comparing prices in different reservations systems. The benefit sometimes reaches 1-2 thousand rubles per day. Try it for yourself and compare!

About the best attractions in Dubai in Russian

Most tourists just come to the nearby beach Jumeirah Beach to be photographed against the background of a “sailboat”. But for a more vivid experience, there is the option of dining at one of the hotel’s indoor restaurants.

How to get there: Take a cab or bus #8, 81 and 88 to Umm Suqeim Park stop. Opening hours: the beach overlooking the hotel is available 24 hours a day, the bars and restaurants inside each on their own schedule. How much does it cost: prices at this hotel are of course very high – rooms from $1,000 a night, and dinner at the restaurants will cost hundreds of dollars. Even a simple discounted bar costs from $87, the same amount for tea/coffee and cake and that’s on a voucher.

4. Singing Fountains.

Every day at the foot of the Burj Khalifa Tower is one of Dubai’s most grandiose shows. Several times a day under the music of the world’s hits “dance” fountains, joining the jets of water in a single rhythm.

Water extravaganza is absolutely free for all comers, the main thing is to take the right place for a view, because there are a lot of people who want to see such a spectacle.

Getting there: Similar to the Burj Khalifa Tower, i.e. either by bus 27, 28, 29, 50 and 81 from the Dubai Mall stop or take the Metro to the Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall station (red line, a pedestrian walkway is more convenient). Opening hours: every half hour between 6pm and 11pm. How much does it cost: free of charge.

The Marina Walk is a promenade along the picturesque bay where snow-white yachts and traditional boats bob on the waves, so loved by tourists. Just before sunset, the boats sail around Palm Jumeirah.

Panoramic views of Dubai in the pink haze of the setting sun, the lights of the big city, fine dining and fresh sea breeze – all this leaves unforgettable emotions from the trip.

6. The Desert

The desert of the Arabian Peninsula is perhaps the most authentic, inherent to the land here. It lives in the souls and worldviews of local residents. Once we met a local girl Aisha who was just dropping me and my child off from a camel race, and you should have heard how she lovingly described the starry night over the desert and the fire in the sands… What for us is a lifeless wasteland, to them is a whole universe.

Tips what to see in Dubai: What sights to see

The desert is full of opportunities for tourists: you can go on a jeep safari or in the Ras Al Khor reserve, go on camel racing, falconry or visit a Bedouin village. So the real entertainment in the Arabian way awaits just among the sand dunes.

7. 7. Amusement Parks

Emirates is famous for its amusement parks. It is full of a mixture of different attractions: water slides, cartoon characters, Bollywood dancing… In this respect, Dubai will satisfy all your desires.

Sightseeing in Dubai on a map

No matter if you are going for a holiday as an adult or with children, there is something for everyone. There are several water parks in Dubai, the main ones are Wild Wadi, Atlantis and Laguna. Among the most impressive theme parks is Legoland, IMG Worlds and MOTIONGATE.

8. Garden of Wonders

Dubai Miracle Garden is spread over 7 hectares and is planted with almost 50 million flowers. It’s hard for me to say which number is more striking, but the park is considered one of the largest in the world.

Miracle Garden in Dubai Description and Address

Flowers here serve as a kind of watercolor that paints all kinds of sculptures – the park has a flower plane of the Emirates airline, the world’s great architectural monuments and even life-size castles!

How much: $15 for an adult and $11 for a child (ages 3-12), and with this voucher you can enter at a discount of up to 30%.

9. Dubai Frame.

Another entertaining architectural structure has appeared in the city in recent years. By the way, the frame of Dubai catches the eye from afar – it literally grows over all the surroundings, imprisoning the panorama of the metropolis within its boundaries.

Top places to see in Dubai overview with photos and descriptions

Up close the impression is a little smoothed, but as soon as you get to the upper edge you lose the power of speech: there is a glass bridge under your feet. I remember reading children’s stories as a child, I was sure that there can never be such a bridge in real life. But here is a living example that in the world all ideas and ideas are possible!

How to get there: when Al Jafiliya Metro Station (red line) leaves, look for the Emarat Bus Station and follow it to Gate 1 to enter Zabeel Park, where the Dubai Frame is located. There is also a bus F09 going every 15 minutes to Gate 4 (it is closer to Dubai Frame, the park). Opening hours: 9:00 am – 9:00 pm, seven days a week. How much does it cost: adult admission ticket costs $14 at the box office, children (3-12 years) – $ 5.5. Online, you can buy a voucher for $28 immediately with transfer from your hotel.

10. Colorful Markets.

Authentic bazaars are a highlight of any eastern country. Despite all the modernity of Dubai, its latest trends, when you get into the local market you find yourself in the thick of the same events that took place here in the past.

What is the first thing to see in Dubai

The emirate is famous for its gold market, spices market, textile and perfume markets. It is no secret that many people go to Dubai for shopping. And you can understand these people, because it is very difficult to resist the abundance of local goods!

How to get there: all the markets are in the same area of Deira and you can walk through each of them during the day, “flowing” from near the gold to the spice shops. I have marked all the markets on the map below. Opening hours: 10:00 to 20:00 How much does it cost: the entrance to the markets is absolutely free and the cost of shopping depends only on the products you choose.

11. Dubai Creek.

For decades Dubai Creek has been the city’s main waterway and transportation artery linking the Deira and Bur Dubai areas. For only 1 dirham (~20 rubles) you can cross the bay on traditional Abra boats.

What are the best sights in Dubai

Apart from its main transport function, the canal has been so transformed in recent years that it has become a significant Dubai landmark.

Getting there: The Al Ghubaiba Marine Transport Station, Dubai’s main city pier, can be reached by metro (Al Ghubaiba Station, Green Line). Opening hours: The ferry service operates from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. How much does it cost: From 1 dirham.

The Museum of the Future

The only museum of its kind in the world – about biotechnology, innovations in climate change, artificial intelligence and robots. Its opening was timed to coincide with the beginning of the Dubai Expo in 2021.

All the most progressive and daring ideas have come together in the museum’s exhibits. It really is the future that awaits us, thousands of scientists around the world are already working on it, and it’s good to know that. It’s better to get to know it early than to be on the periphery of progress.

13. Al Fahidi.

The Al Fahidi Historical Open Air Museum mimics an ancient Arab fort. Inside the walls is a small town with squares, mosques, traditional houses and alleys. On the territory of the fortress is the oldest surviving building in the area, today it houses the Dubai Museum.

Sightseeing in Dubai

Despite the rather believable and colorful “scenery”, the eastern atmosphere is not particularly felt here. However, the Al Bastakia area itself, where the Al Fahidi Fort is located, is no less a reflection of the local traditions.

The best way to get there: take the metro to Al Fahidi station. ~The best way to get there is by metro to Al Fahidi station where you can walk 7-10 minutes on foot. Opening hours: Every day except Fridays from 8:30 to 20:30. Cost: Entrance to Al Fahidi is free; the Dubai Museum costs Dhs 3 dirhams only.

14. Madinat Jumeirah.

The so-called Arab Venice is a tangle of canals connected by bridges. Comparison with the city on the water is somewhat appropriate, although, of course, and feels that the situation is largely artificial.

A map of Dubai's most interesting places for the tourist

But it is done in the best traditions of the East – the classic houses with ornaments, lace arches, local wooden boats and Arab markets.

Getting there: Take buses 8 and 88 directly to the Madinat Jumeirah stop; or take the Metro to Mall of Emirates Station (Red Line) and bus 81 to the Burj Al Arab Hotel stop. Opening hours: 24 hours, but at night the establishments around are all closed, so it doesn’t look as lively and inviting. How much does it cost: free.

15. Global Village Fair.

Global Village is an amazing place to walk and shop, with a separate trade pavilion dedicated to each country. Millions of tourists visit this Dubai fairground every year from November to April.

Global Village in Dubai

In just a few hours, visitors take an almost round-the-world trip – each street reflects the atmosphere of a particular country, from tastes to smells, sounds, and visuals. Here you can buy goods from different countries, enjoy foreign cuisine, and watch performances of artists from all over the world.

Getting there: The Fair is quite far from the city center and there are no metro lines in this part of the city so you can only get there by bus lines No. 102 (runs from Rashidiya metro station), No. 103 (runs from Union metro station), No. 104 (from Al Ghubaiba metro station and stops near Al Jafiliya metro station) and by bus line No. 106 (runs from Mall of the Emirates metro station). I wrote about Dubai Metro in detail in this article, where I also laid out the route. Opening hours: Sat – 16:00 to midnight, Thu – Thu – 16:00 to 01:00, Monday – Ladies day, i.e. entrance only for women with children. Tickets cost: admission is only $4, children under 3 years old are free.

Fall in love with Dubai! I’m not just talking about the popular attractions like the Burj Khalifa, but also about the off-the-beaten-path places. I’m sharing tips from our trip and useful links.

Today I will tell you what you can love about Dubai. It is not only skyscrapers of glass and concrete, competing in luxury and height. It is also the cozy little world of the Old City with its low buildings, abr boats and shady streets, modern Arabian art, floral wonders and a sea of entertainment. All these unique sights are worth seeing at least once in a lifetime!

Sopron, Hungary: information about the city

Beware: interesting tours! To get to know Dubai better, book an author’s tour on Tripster. Read the descriptions and reviews to choose the coolest program. Dubai has a great selection of fascinating excursions.

Burj Khalifa

This is the top of the top sights in Dubai – something to see first. We liked the tower with the height of 163 floors very much, even an inveterate skeptic it will impress at least. It seems that its spire is carried away to the stratosphere!

In order to get to the 124th floor of this beauty you need to pay 149 dirhams which is the cheapest ticket. But believe me, it’s worth the climb.

We bought an online combo ticket with a visit to the tower and the aquarium. Took the ticket for 9am, before the haze. The views are unforgettable! You can visit the tower on your own. Read all the details in a separate article about Burj Khalifa – there are all the tips, prices and tips.

If you want to flash your pics on Instagram, get there early before the light reflects off the glass panes of the observation deck and there aren’t as many people there.

This is me admiring the view of the city that conquered the desert. The most mesmerizing part is watching the tiny cars run along the freeways.

The Singing Fountains of Dubai Fountain.

Well the fountains, well they are singing. The crowd of tourists in the evening is just crazy, and everyone takes the best seats in advance.

No doubt, it was nice to look at the tight jets of water, beautifully illuminated by lights, that elastic, like snakes, wriggle to the beat of Arabic music against the background of the Burj Khalifa. But when they played Russian music (something like Pugacheva), it was too much! We saw something similar in Nha Trang’s Winkel Park – they even played “Kalinka” to the delight of our compatriots.

We watched it several times: in the daytime at 13:00 and 13:30 (faded and uninteresting), in the evening from 18:00 to 23:00, about every half hour. Best seen from the Apple balcony on the 2nd floor of Dubai Mall, if you can make your way there. It’s all free.

By the way we liked similar fountains in a Mexican town Campeche much more: we were sitting right in the center of amphitheater, so it created IMAX effect, there were few tourists, pleasant music played. What a pure delight.

The Singing Fountains, Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa are included in almost all Dubai sightseeing tours. Picked for you the best individual sightseeing tours by car:

Sights of Dubai

The Singing Fountains in front of Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa Tower. Not that impressive, but you can see them once.

Dubai Mall

You have already understood that in Dubai everything is being built in an unbelievable scale. Meet and be amazed – the largest shopping mall in the world “Dubai Mall” with an area of 1.2 million square meters! This is not TSUM and not even Chinese endless malls. We walked about one kilometer from the subway up to the entrance of the mall and then about 10 more kilometers along the mall itself. What could not be found there! If you are a shopaholic, be careful. We are not very keen on shopping so we ate at the food court and left without buying anything. By the way, the mall is an escape from the heat!

Sights of Dubai

Dubai Mall outside.

Dubai Aquarium

I have a soft spot for God’s creatures, so I definitely went to the aquarium and underwater zoo. It’s not just an aquarium, it’s an aquarium! Just imagine – 10 million tons of water. If this thing bursts.

It was not without awe that I entered the 48-meter tunnel that runs under the aquarium. What graceful stingrays and funny fish are there! A little higher up is the underwater zoo, which is also very interesting.

You can see the aquarium itself from the side for free, but we bought a combo ticket along with the Burj Khalifa. At that time it was very profitable – 390 dirhams for two. Combo tickets change all the time, see the actual prices on the official website. AED 70 for individual tickets. The Aquarium can also be visited as part of the tour.

How do I get to the Aquarium, Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and the fountains? They are all in one place! Drive to the Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall metro station. From there follow the signs to the Mall. Most people go to the mall, so you won’t get lost. The fountains are right at the exit of the mall, the aquarium is in the mall, and you will definitely not miss the tower. :)

You can see the famous aquarium for free, but only from the outside. To get into the tunnel and the underwater zoo, you need to buy a ticket. The underwater zoo has some cool jellyfish!

Bastakia (Al Fahidi).

Would you say what a newfangled mess this restored neighborhood of Bastakia is? At first glance, I thought so too. But it’s so nice to hide from the sun and the noise of the big city there. And when the chill goes down and the moon rises, the magic begins! Moonlight casts sharp shadows on the sand walls, and at once all the characters of oriental fairy tales come to life: here Schaherezade in a burka sneaked past, here mocking Hoja Nasreddin led his mule, and here the robber marks the chalk door of Ali Baba.

We lived in an Oriental hotel right in this block and every evening we enjoyed the mysterious silence and fantasized about what Dubai was like before oil production. There’s plenty to see in Bastakia: the old fort, the mosque, all sorts of museums and art galleries. Have tea or coffee at Basta Art Cafe – the interior alone is worth it!

If you are interested in old Dubai and its pre-Flood history, we recommend taking a tour “Dubai Through the Ages” – in reviews tourists write that the guide is informative about it.

What to see on your own in Dubai

While everyone is shopping, hanging out on the beaches and having fun in the water parks, check out the deserted Bastakia area and see what Dubai looked like before oil production.

Deira

Deira is a historic neighborhood, a jumbled mix of Egypt, Morocco, and modern Dubai. There are oriental markets, narrow alleys between traditional houses, and skyscrapers. The aromas in the spice market are overwhelming: it smells of cumin, vanilla, saffron, zira and thousands of other colorful spices. In my opinion, this area in Dubai is a must-see for everyone!

The area gave us contradictory feelings: clingy callers, signs in Russian, the glitter of diamonds, gold and rolexes irritated us. On the other hand, where else in Dubai do you see such a strange mixture of old and new? But all this is only in the area where the markets are concentrated – Al Ras. Farther away are more modern buildings.

Don’t miss the Golden Market – you definitely haven’t seen so much gold in one place!

To get to Deira, take the traditional Abra boat for AED 1 dirham one way or this tour and you’ll see lots more: Bur Dubai, Shindaga, Al Sif and Bastakia.

Things to do in Dubai

This is the view of Deira from a traditional abra boat, which you can take across Dubai Creek for only 1 dirham.

Box Park

A trendy and vibrant place to walk around, try different cuisines, take beautiful photos for Instagram and shop. Colorful container buildings, installations, and street art. Come in the evening when it gets busy! It’s a different Dubai.

La Mer and the City Walk.

The cozy corners of Europe in Dubai are La Mer and City Walk neighborhoods. If you are in the area, check it out. The neighborhood has a lot of art, graffiti and other interesting sights, as well as a café. By the way, City Walk has great views of the Burj Khalifa.

Jumeirah Mosque

They say it’s a very beautiful mosque and it is necessary to see it, but we did not go – there was not much time, and in Dubai there are so much more interesting than the mosque! If we went to see it, we would choose twilight, because then the lights come on.

They allow non-believers here for 35 dirhams per person. The price includes a long lecture in English, tea-coffee and national dress. There are tours at 10:00 and 14:00, it’s better to come half an hour before. You can see the mosque on your own, photos and videos are allowed. It is important to observe the dress code.

Alternate transportation is available – first take the Metro to Palm Deira Station and then bus number 8 to the Grand Masjid Jumeirah stop.

Sights of Dubai

Dubai Marina and JLT

The impressive Dubai Marina area is an artificial marina with glittering skyscrapers. A kind of Dubai Manhattan – it’s expensive and upscale. We liked the neighborhood, it’s beautiful and photogenic. They say it’s even cooler in the evening with lights, but we were only in the daytime.

Next door is Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT), which is no less impressive. They are similar to each other and in my mind they merge a bit.

Get here by subway, on the red line to Damac Properties or Jumeirah Lakes Towers. Or take one of these tours:

Skyscrapers of Dubai

Dubai Marina Promenade.

Sheikh Zayed Highway.

You can see Dubai’s skyscrapers inexpensively without melting down from the panoramic window of the first or last subway car. We peeked out of the regular cars, but we also managed to look at a lot of things! But the best way is to take a breeze through Dubai in a luxury convertible. All the tourists are delighted with such an excursion! Plus you get a good guide in the person of a driver who will not be boring to tell you about the iconic sights, tell you about the experience of life in Dubai and advise where best to shop, entertain and eat.

Dubai

Sitting in the comfortable air-conditioned subway cars, it’s great to admire the skyscrapers of Dubai!

Flamingos

The flamingos in front of the skyscrapers are a real exotic in Dubai! And for free, too. It all sounds beautiful and we almost didn’t go there until we read the reviews. In fact there are a lot of complications: you have to take a cab (expensive), the birds come very close and you can see them only with binoculars, and the beautiful pictures can be taken only with a TV set. Nevertheless, there are a lot of people in the reviews who enjoyed the birdwatching.

In Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, there are only three places where you can observe birds. The sanctuary is open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday through Thursday. To catch a cab back downtown, you need to get off the freeway.

The Burj al Arab Hotel and Sail.

You can see Dubai’s most famous hotel on your own, although it is mostly seen as part of a sightseeing tour. Come to Open Beach, or Jumeirah Public Beach, to take that very photo in front of the famous hotel-sail. That’s exactly where we were on the beach. To avoid confusion, here are the coordinates: 25.145434,55.1927514.

Another photogenic place, not so easily accessible, is the beach of the hotel Madinat. To get there you have to walk through the hotel.

We took the metro (Mall of the Emirates) and then walked to the beach, looking at the beautiful villas. It took us about 20-25 minutes. I think there is a bus, but we didn’t look for it.

Al Serkal Avenue

Dubai’s non-tourist attraction is clearly not for everyone. It’s a complex of galleries with contemporary art exhibitions and cool cafes – all in an industrial design. The exhibitions are constantly changing, so see what’s waiting for you before you go.

Flower Miracle – Miracle Garden.

50 million flowers! Can you imagine? We can’t. And it’s all in the form of whimsical shapes. Do not let your phone memory fill up with so many pictures. Admission costs 55 dirhams, best to come while it’s still light. The park is open from October to April.

You can get here first by metro Mall of the Emirates, then take bus 105 directly to the entrance of the park. Or take this tour:

Rub Al Khali Desert.

A desert safari is impossible to ignore – but we did, because we were on a similar one in Egypt. Overall, the reviews of the desert excursions are excellent. Some people like it better in the morning, and some prefer to meet the sunset in the sandy ocean and admire the starry sky. Check out what safaris are offered in Dubai:

What to see out of town in Dubai

Dubai Frame

The strange giant letter P, which we saw regularly from the subway window and which reminded us painfully of a familiar Perm art object, turned out to be a new observation deck and museum. At the top is an extreme passage with a glass floor from which you can look out over Downtown Dubai. Admission costs 52.5 dirhams. You can buy tickets on the official website.

To get to Dubai Frame, take the metro to Al Jafiliya station and then go to entrance #4. You can also go up to the observation deck on this sightseeing tour. I recommend taking it because the guide has a lot of great reviews.

What to see for free in Dubai

Glow Park neon garden and dinosaurs.

There is a park next to Dubai Frame. During the day, it’s quiet and peaceful, generally average. In the evening, Glow Park is an outrage of color! Everything glows and sparkles, the dinosaurs move and make sounds. Children love it, and adults do not remain indifferent. Buy your ticket online, it is cheaper.

You can get here on foot from Al Jafiliya Metro. Come to the entrance number 6.

Entertainment at Dubai Parks and Resorts

Dubai residents love and know how to have fun! So grab your kids and head to the Dubai Parks and Resorts theme park complex: the colourful Legoland, Indian Bollywood, Motiongate and Riverland, dedicated to movies and cartoons. Tourists are advised to take tickets for only 2 parks, otherwise you won’t have time for anything. Find out how to rest in the UAE with children.

Atlantis Hotel Complex

If you want to spend a whole day with kids in Dubai, Atlantis Hotel offers you the Lost Chambers Aquarium, Aquaventure Waterpark with extreme slides, and Dolphin Bay, an aquarium resembling a sunken ancient city. There’s also a beach with a panoramic view of Dubai!

Wild Wadi Waterpark

Some say it’s the best water park in Dubai, while others declare their love only for Aquaventure. There is a unique slide at Wild Wadi where you can reach speeds of up to 80 km/h! We have not tried it, but would you like to?

To get here, get off at Mall of the Emirates subway station and then take bus number 8 to the park entrance. Or just buy your tickets at once with the shuttle:

Lounge

Not exactly a sightseeing attraction, but pulls on the observation deck. Come to the Pure Sky Lounge on the 35th floor and make your way to the terrace. Grab a drink and enjoy the sunset and the chill after a hot day.

Exclusive experiences

If this is not your first time in Dubai and you’ve seen everything you can see, we suggest you get an exclusive experience: fly over the skyscrapers in a helicopter, learn to ride an Arabian horse or take a ride around the city in a convertible. It doesn’t come cheap, but the experience will be the most vivid!
