    I mean, it's the world's tallest building. Amazing views, of course. I opted for the costlier Sky Tour to the 148 (including the 124 and 125th) which, in retrospect, if it's within your budget seemed well worth it--there are a number of long lines along the way, and if you're wearing that "Sky" sticker, you cut right in front every time.

    The premium sunset hours tickets were all booked two days ahead of time, so I booked a cheaper 7:00 ticket. Interestingly, no one along the way checked the time of my ticket, just the price, so I entered at 6:15 without any trouble and caught a beautiful sunset from the 148th floor. I wasn't even intending to.

    There are some unobtrusive little customer desks on the ground floor of the Dubai Mall where I was able to swap my printed online coupon for the actual ticket. I thought they were just a little help desk so when I stopped to ask a question, they gave me my ticket as well, which saved me a bunch of time. I'm sure the lines at the Burj were longer.

    I wasn't sure how much "real skiing" we'd get but it is a fairly good practice hill! We had so much fun! It is a novelty, sure, but worth it. It was really fun!

    It should be noted that we were colder than we'd thought. I suggest bringing real ski gloves instead of using the ones they provided. It is also worth signing your waiver and booking all of your gear in advance. That was a major time saver.

    The staff is really nice and they keep a close watch on safety protocol. Go if you can!

    Great day out at the water park -we went as a large group had our own seating area .
    There is no Gluten Free food available on the complex -this makes life very difficult when you have a coeliac child with you .
    Staff were not helpful at all and one member was rude.
    The water park is kept spotless clean

    We had Connor and loretta talk to us about the sea lions , was an amazing experience to get up close with them. Both Connor and Loretta were very knowledgeable and explained a lot to us about the sea lion. They were both very funny and had a great sense of humour which was very nice. They made our experience worth every penny.

    We came for a passenger ride in a Ferrari 458 GT.

    All service personnel was very friendly and helpful.

    Organisation was very structured and safety standards were on a very high level, for example triple checking if seat belts were fastened correctly.

    The race car had brand new front tires so we got an extra round for free to experience full speed - it was excellent!

    Went desert cycling with 3 other friends. We rented bikes at the trek bicycle store . Staff are well informed and helpful. Bring enough water for the track. The views of the desert and little wildlife are breathtaking. I recommend to bring a friend as it’s a long way and no human settlements there.

    Have you ever wondered where can you meet your favorite cartoon characters and superheroes? Look no further than IMG World in Dubai, the best and largest indoor theme park.

    IMG World Dubai is a massive 1.5-million-square-foot indoor theme park, and has the capacity to welcome more than 20,000 guests a day. It’s divided into 6 zones and two of them are owned by global brands like Marvel and Cartoon Network. The other 4 zones, IMG boulevard, Lost Valley-Dinosaur adventure, Hunted hotel and IMG kids zone are all created by IMG itself. The overall setup of the building from inside and outside is both thrilling and family-friendly.

    In my opinion, IMG world is an amazing place for thrill seekers. The variety of rides ensures everyone has a good time, though popular ones might have longer lines but they are definitely worth the wait. My favorite ride was the “Powerpuff Girls – Mojo Robot Rampage” as it spins around really fast.

    I recommend this theme park to everyone and especially for tourist families. It’s also a great place for cartoon network and marvel fans. Despite some queues, I rate this amazing theme park a solid 4 out 5.
