Ever since I was bitten by the travel bug, the idea of flying to another country brings me the ultimate excitement. To experience the differences of culture plus the savory cuisine offered by the locals have left remnants of glorious memories that I take home each trip I make.

So when a friend suggested to go to Dubai to attend the AEEDC 2019 Exhibition, I did not think twice of hitting the ENTER button in my computer to confirm my booking. One of the 7 states of the United Arab Emirates, Dubai remains one of the most interesting countries in my bucket list that I would like to visit. One of the famous architectural presence is the Burj Khalifa, Miracle Garden among others. By sharing with you my experience, here are some of the best places I visited in Dubai.

Miracle Garden in Dubai

Gold and textile Souk

Early in the cold season, the Dubai Miracle Garden opens its doors and showcases different flowers in full bloom. During my visit, there were different flower formations featuring Disney characters and the 747 Emirates Airways Boeing plane discriminately placed as the garden's highlight. 
Dubai is known for their gold and rich fabrics, and a trip to the Souk is a must. Riding the "abra" is a worthy experience popular among tourists and locals traversing the river taking you straight to the Gold market. While passing by the Souk market, I could not help take photos of the place as it lights up the streets of Dubai inviting travelers like me to do a little shopping. 

Burj Kalifa

Dubai Village

Hailed as the tallest building in the world that stands at 2,717 ft from ground level. It was designed by a famous American Architect by the name of Adrian Smith, of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. As reported by the officials, the Burj Kalifa was first constructed in 2004 and was inaugurated in 2010 in hopes to gain international recognition hence investors pouring in.
Tucked in a quiet town away from the city centre of Dubai, the Dubai Village is filled with a rich display of different products around from the world paying homage to its origin. This is something that can spark your interest to come and visit while traveling to Dubai.
