Raised far beyond the city’s gigantic towers, one that surpasses them all. The top of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, is at 828 meters.

The Dubai Creek divides the Emirate of Dubai into two parts. On the river you can board traditional sailing boats – so-called dhows – and marvel at the mega-metropolis from the water while enjoying local and international specialties on board. This is an impressive experience, especially in the evening, when the skyscrapers are elaborately illuminated.
The Golden Souks are on the edge of Dubai Creek. Jewelers after another are lined up in the streets of Dubai’s old town. Street vendors offer coconut milk from freshly opened coconuts – a welcome refreshment in the hot desert climate.
