Burj Khalifa: The Burj Khalifa deserves attention and respect when it comes to the must visit places symbol of Dubai. The Burj Khalifa Tour begins at the foyer where you can view the history of Dubai and also that of the building. You can also visit the highest viewing area of the building (124th floor) by travelling on the world's fastest elevator (which travels at the rate of 10 meters per second). At the viewing deck you get to see beautiful, panoramic view of the entire city. The chances of viewing a city from such a great height may not come to you again, so do not miss it!
Dubai Creek: The Dubai Creek is a place that represents the city which existed before it became a glamour city that it is today. In short, this is a place where it all began. The Dubai Creek separates Bur Dubai from Deira and it is on the side of Bur Dubai that the Bin Yas tribe first settled. Today, Dubai Creek is a highly developed part of the city although it still carries the old world charm. Here, you can visit the Dubai Museum, Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum House, Jumeirah Mosque, Grand Mosque and several such important places. You can also enjoy the beautiful sights of the Dubai Creek while on a dhow cruise with including delicious dinner.
Dubai City Tour: Apart from Burj Khalifa and Dubai Creek, there are many other things that you should see in Dubai. Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Beach, the Palm Island, etc. are some of these places. If you want to view the entire city in a few hours time, going on a city bus tour would be a great idea. These city tour buses take you to the important landmarks of the city and also allow you to get off the bus if you wish to explore something that interests you. This is a great way of sightseeing in Dubai if you are here on a short trip.
Things to Do

With camel riding, dune bashing, belly dancing and henna painting, you would have a great evening. In addition to this is the dinner with all the lip-smacking Arabic or Lebanese cuisine that would give a ravishing end to your day as well as the trip.
Dhow Cruise Dinner: The dhow is a traditional Bedouin style boat that was used for transportation as well as travelling in the olden days in Dubai. You can still see these dhows on the creeks, lakes and canals of Dubai but not as a vehicle of transportation but mostly in the form of floating restaurants. Dhow cruise dinners are conducted both on the Dubai Creek and the Dubai Marina. These floating restaurants are decorated beautifully with lights and ooze a calm and relaxing environment. The lower deck is fully air-conditioned while the upper deck acts as an open air restaurant. Wherever you choose to sit, you can enjoy beautiful sights and mouth-watering dishes served in the buffet.

Situated in Yas Island, it would take you just 1.5 hours to reach the Ferrari World from Dubai. This adventure park is a proud owner of several thrilling rides.
