Dubai has a lot to offer to all its visitors. No wonder then that Dubai gets such a large stream of visitors each year, with the latest travel index rankings placing the city at Number Four among the most visited cities right across the globe.
Clearly, Dubai has so much to see and experience, which in turn is most easily done with a rental car. In this article, we share the top 5 most important places that you really MUST visit when you are in Dubai, once your rental car is booked.
Right at the top of our list would be the building which is at the top of the world – the Burj Khalifa! Standing tall (tallest!) at 830 meters, the Burj Khalifa is definitely an absolute must visit while in Dubai. The views from the observatory decks at the Burj Khalifa are specially to die for (not literally of course!).
While the Burj Khalifa is easily accessed via the Burj Khalifa Metro Station which is a mere 10 minutes’ walk away, the experience driving around the immaculate structure – taking selfies with it in the backdrop, has its own charm.
A drive to the city’s resplendent Dubai Creek is a must-have experience for all visitors to the city. Park your car comfortably and take a ride on any of the plentiful roofed boats there, to be waltzed back in time. Once you are done, take a stroll around Deira to experience an ancient and historic side of Dubai.
Burj Al Arab
Yet another of Dubai’s most iconic buildings, once you have your rental car, it would be a folly to miss visiting Burj Al Arab or simply The Burj, which is often labeled as the world’s only 7-star hotel. Its iconic structure and unique boat shaped design has become representative of Dubai. One of the most photographed buildings in the world; you simply cannot afford to miss taking a picture with The Burj in the backdrop!
Dubai offers a number of desert safaris which are an absolute must-have experience while in the magical city. To enjoy these desert safaris, you can simply take your rental car and drive along to the specific destination where these safaris are being offered. Once there, you will have 4x4s at your disposal that you can leisurely drive around the sand dunes there; in case you have already rented such a vehicle, you can straightaway use it for your desert safari!
Wild Wadi Water Park
This is an absolute must-visit water park in the Jumeirah area, in close proximity to both Burj Al Arab as well as Jumeirah Beach Hotel. The plentiful water slides along with the wave pool and surfing machines here offer an unparalleled experience for all visitors!
There’s clearly a LOT on offer in Dubai, which is more easily experienced with a rental car. To book your next rental car in Dubai, make sure to visit Speedy Drive!
