It also has the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, everything is created at the highest of quality with no expense spared. Dubai has created a destination that every traveller should visit and spend quality time in, you will definitely not be disappointed.

The food choices available in Dubai are plenty. You will find cuisine from all over the world prepared by the best chefs using only quality products. I do recommend Pierchic, Nathan Outlaw Al Mahara (seafood) and La Petite Maison (Mediterranean). I also highly recommend the high tea at the Burj Al Arab, it is out of this world! finally, for a delicious Baklava Sweet go to Wafi Mall at the Raffles Hotel.

Desert Safari

The desert safari is conveniently located from the city. The drive through the desert on a four wheel drive vehicle is an unmatchable experience. The vehicle slipping through the sand dunes and being in the airborne is Fantastic. With no roads to follow it’s surprising how the drivers remember the path through the sand. Once you have completed your safari the tour group offer food and traditional entertainment …a great experience the Trafoodel highly recommends

Burj Khalifa

Burj Khalifa

Burj Khalifa has redefined what is possible in the design and engineering of supertall buildings. By combining cutting-edge technologies and cultural influences, the building serves as a global icon that is both a model for future urban centers and speaks to the global movement towards compact, livable urban areas. The Tower and its surrounding neighborhood are more centralized than any other new development in Dubai. At the center of a new downtown neighborhood, Burj Khalifa’s mixed-use program focuses the area’s development density and provides direct connections to mass transit systems. Burj Khalifa’s architecture has embodied references to Islamic architecture and yet reflects the modern global community it is designed to serve. The building’s Y-shaped plan provides the maximum amount of perimeter for windows in living spaces without developing internal unusable area

The Egyptian theme of the pyramid-shaped hotel won’t appeal to everyone, yet the sumptuous interiors are considerably more tasteful than the exterior suggests. In the imposing marble-clad lobby are enormous round ottoman-style sofas with cushions, massive urns, mashrabiyya panels decorating nooks, and pillars featuring carved reliefs.

As long as you don’t want to be by the beach, the central Oud Metha location – close to the Old Dubai areas of Deira and Bur Dubai, yet handy for the Sheikh Zayed Road malls and financial district is unbeatable. It may not be as fashionable as Dubai Mall or Mall of the Emirates but adjacent Egyptian-themed Wafi Mall was one of Dubai’s first and is home to 300 shops and 30 restaurants. The lush palm-shaded Creekside Park is a short stroll away, while the airport is a convenient 15-minute drive outside rush hour; allow longer during peak times.
