Live It Up... Attractions There are myriad entertainments to enjoy in Dubai, so be sure you take the time to experience them all...

At the Top

See the sights It’s for good reason that Downtown Dubai is otherwise known as the ‘Centre of Now’ – it’s home to some of city’s best bits, including one impossible-to-miss structure – you guessed it – Burj Khalifa. Everything about this captivating tower is nothing less than amazing, including the breathtaking views that can be seen from its famed observation deck. At the Top is located on the 124th floor of Burj Khalifa, but you can expect to be impressed before you even reach this viewing terrace: Its high-tech, double-deck elevator is one of the fastest in the world, and your inspiring journey into the realm of superlatives begins with a fascinating multimedia presentation on the tri-lobed tower’s artistic design and architectural construction.

Other niche components of the mall include The Souk, an elegantly designed precinct featuring jewellery shops, accessory outlets, traditional Arab clothing and handicraft stores, among others. In Uptown Dubai, aside the winding waterways of Dubai Marina, you’ll find the splendid Dubai Marina Mall. It was quick to establish itself as a favourite of the city’s residents when it openend, due to its great mix of high street stores and cool cafes, while it also caters well to children: a little train choo-choos its way through the mall at regular intervals, pulling toddlers - and often their parents - in brightly coloured carriages. A ride that never fails to raise a smile.

If sailing is more your style, The Address Dubai Marina concierges are on hand to help you hire a vessel from the neighbouring Dubai Marina Yacht Club, while for equine enthusiasts there is the beautiful Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club.

Another fine view of The Dubai Fountain can be had from standout Thai restaurant Thiptara, housed in a stand-alone building on the Burj Lake in the grounds of The Palace Downtown Dubai.
