Dubai has gained a lot of popularity in the last couple of months for being an entertainment hub. The best part about the Emirate is that it provides ample entertainment venues for adults and children alike. Here’s a look into a few things that you must definitely try out and a few places that you must check out when you visit Dubai:
- Dubai Museum
Situated in Bur Dubai, the Dubai Museum is part of the Al Fahidi Fort. It is said that this fort was initially build in the 18th century and was basically used for residential purposes by the rulers. It was also a seat for the government back then. With time, the fort has been restored and should now be visited by people who hold an interest in the magnificent history of Dubai.
- Snow Ski Dubai
Located in the Mall of the Emirates, this is an indoor ski resort that is known to be the first of its kind in the whole of Middle East. The snow setting here is amazing and will allow you to indulge in different activities like tobogganing, snowboarding and skiing. If they want, your children can even simply play in the snow. The resort features five different runs so you can choose one as per your preferences of steepness, height and difficulty. The different runs, slopes and pipes guarantee to provide unlimited enjoyment to snowboarders of all skill levels. The longest run in this ski resort is said to be about 400 meters high with a 60 meter fall.
- Jumeirah Mosque
Built back in the medieval days, the Jumeirah mosque has been constructed using Fatimid traditions. It is known for its spectacular use of modern building materials for the creation of a medieval look. It is a dominant landmark in the Emirate and is situated on Jumeirah Road. The best part is that the mosque welcomes people of all religions, so there is nothing for you to worry about in case you are a non-Muslim. The mosque further features a cultural center that is focused on fostering harmony and understanding between people of different religions.
