Where is Dubai?

Let’s spend a special new year in Dubai this year!
Day 1, Dec 29
Sheikh Zayed Mosque → Emirates Palace → Abu Dhabi Corniche and Breakwater → Louvre Abu Dhabi
There are lots of famous and unique buildings in Dubai.
The majority of UAE are Islam, so there are many mosques here. Sheikh Zayed Mosque is famous for its luxury. Only the gold usage is around 46 tons. The white marble wall are the crystal chandeliers are tens of thousands of miles. The white marble domes and walls are faintly lit in the sun.
The total cost of construction is about $5.5 billion. The giant carpets and crystal-plated chandeliers in the temple are the best in the world.
The Emirates Palace is a luxury five star hotel in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates operated by Kempinski and opened in November 2005. As an iconic Abu Dhabi landmark, this beautiful hotel blends Arabian splendour with the latest luxuries to create a magical and memorable experience.
The tree-lined boulevard is built around the waterfront area, with beaches, gardens and beautiful buildings along the promenade. It is even more impressive in the blue Persian Gulf. Whenever it is day or night, from here, you can browse the beautiful scenery of the city.
In the desert country, the rain is rare, no grass, no fresh water, and water is more expensive than oil. The trees and flowers can be seen on the Abu Dhabi Waterfront Avenue, which is not an easy job.
The artwork can’t be missed.
The oil-rich UAE hopes to “copy” a Louvre in the country. The prestigious Louvre will open branches in the UAE, lending exhibits and allowing them to use the name of the “Louvre”.
Louvre Abu Dhabi, which costs $1.1 billion and ten years to build, is the first comprehensive museum in Arabia. Let us go and explore this white behemoth in this piece of yellow sand.
Day 2, Dec 30
Burj Al Arab Jumeirah → Castle Market → Palm Jumeirah → Box Park → Arab Historic Buildings → Dubai Creek → Ayyam Gallery → Desert Sands
Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is undoubtedly one of Dubai’s most famous spots. Every time you mention Dubai, people can always think of this ultimately luxury hotel.
It is also the only seven-star hotel in the world, with every suite enjoying the unrivaled views of the Arabian Gulf.
In the old castle market, to experience the modern version of the traditional market, this retro Arab market (in the luxurious Jumeirah Castle Hotel) is definitely the perfect choice. The bustling scenes, the scent, and the shopping surprises in every corner bring a different experience.
Strolling through the ancient towers, the corridors with lanterns and the narrow waterways, you can feel the old time. You can find your favorite baby in the brightly colored textiles, colorful spices and exquisite handmade souvenirs. The city’s concentrated collection of jewellery, antiques and art is also distinctive, complementing the elegant Arabian-style architectural background.
Palm Island is the world’s largest artificial island. It is known as the eighth wonder of the world and is a must-see for tourists coming to Dubai. From the city centre, take the Palm Island exclusive light rail and admire the islands on both sides of the road to the end of the Atlantis Hotel.
Most of the island has high-end residential areas and upscale hotels. After getting off at the end of the crescent-shaped dyke, you can see the endless Persian Gulf and you can see the panoramic view of the Atlantis Hotel.
