5 Must Places To Visit In Downtown Dubai

Here’s a list of things to do in downtown Dubai to have a full downtown experience :

1. Visiting The Burj Khalifa And The Burj Park

Next to the Dubai Mall stands the world’s tallest skyscraper. The 828 meters tall Burj Khalifa is 160 stories building that houses a variety of commercial, residential, and hospitality ventures. 
Given its height, it's a wonder that it only took five years to finish its construction. The building is so tall that flight paths had to be changed to accommodate its height.
The views at the top of the world wonder are breathtaking and the Islamic architecture and spiral geometric that forms the building exterior continue to amaze structure gurus.The Burj Khalifa can be accessed through the Dubai Mall during scheduled visits. The top-level tickets will give you a different perspective on how you view the universe, while the top-level sky ticket will show you Dubai from the heavens.
On the 124th, 125th, and 148th floors where the public is allowed entry, there is access to a 360-degree view of the extensive Dubai infrastructure. At the base of the iconic skyscraper, the beautiful and public Burj Park is free for all to visit and enjoy. The scenic walkway boardwalk in the park is the best place to see the magnificent standing Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Fountains and the skylines of the city.

2. The Dubai Choreographed Fountains

While you get down from the mega tail skyscraper, The Dubai Choreographed Fountains are the next wonders that you must visit in Downtown Dubai.
Not only are the waters soothing when they are calm, but they are also entertaining as the fountains are arranged to dance and move in motions coordinated to world-renowned masterpieces and music works.
The Dubai fountains occupy areas equal to two football pitches and are next to the Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa. At an extra cost, adrenaline junkies and tourists are allowed to stand in the middle of the fountains while they enjoy the music and get drenched in the water - an exhilarating experience.

3. Visit The Dubai Ice Rink

Located on the ground floor of the Dubai Mall, Dubai Ice Rink is open daily from 10:00a.m to midnight. This ice skating spot in the heart of Downtown Dubai is the best place to bond with friends and loved ones as you cruise the ice sport arena.

This is usually a serial experience that will leave you in a relaxed and reflective mode. For those that would like a simpler way to enjoy the canal, walk ways are available along the water canal stretch that we find suitable for lovers and adventurers to walk hand in hand as they enjoy both the waters and the scenic views of Downtown Dubai.
We must note, for history and structural lovers, that the water canal is considered one of the most ambitious construction projects that Dubai has ever embarked on.
