Despite the convenience in applying for a Dubai visa online, many vacationers ask the question, why visit a city in a desert? Especially when temperatures in the city rise beyond 50 degrees. Why then visit Dubai? Simple, it's one of the most extravagant, over-the-top cities you will ever visit in your life.
Dubai is growing at an extraordinary rate. Just as soon as a project is completed and opened to the public, a new one is on the way. This is obvious when you see the skyline as you gently sail up and down the Dubai Creek, everything is sleek and grand. The Dubai Mall, world's largest mall, is completed shielded from the desert heat and is the dream destination for every shopaholic, complete with a aquarium and an ice skating rink.
The world tallest building, Burj Khalifa, stands right next to the mall and allows the public to experience the world at 452 meters. The 275 meters long Dubai Fountains is the world's largest dancing fountains and puts on an awe-inspiring performance that cannot be matched in terms of grandeur. For thrill seekers, Dubai offers the longest urban zipline in the world, which allows you to experience the view at 170 meters while zipping across at 60km/h for a total distance of 1,000 meters.
The Dubai Eye opens this year (2018) and will be the largest ferris wheel taking passengers to a dizzying height of 210 meters, the largest rope climbing platform, at 150 meters tall, is also set to open. With many more projects planned for the future, Dubai is set to be a one of a kind tourist attraction city where all tourist are treated like sultans. These are more than enough reasons to visit Dubai.
