Top 10 Things To Do In Dubai

Dubai TRAVEL

Dubai is like a 40-year-old man with a new red Ferrari. It can’t help but show off.

The city, the second largest in the United Arab Emirates after Abu Dhabi, has an astonishing array of fairy-tale structures. You will have to visit yourself to decide if these creations are impressive or plain preposterous.

Here are 10 highlights that no tourist should miss:

1. Burj Khalifa

Water Discus Underwater Hotels Dubai

Awesome Underwater Hotel in Dubai: The Water Discus

Dubai TRAVEL

Water Discus Underwater Hotel Dubai

Water Discus Underwater Hotels inspired by ageless dreams – created by modern technology of Deep Ocean Technology.
People have wanted not only to sail across the seas but also to explore the depths of the oceans since time immemorial. Today, the advent of new technology made the heart of the ocean a setting not only for diving, but also for luxurious holidays. Now the innovative concept of Water Discus Hotels makes it all possible.

Water Discus Hotels comprise two discs – an underwater and above-water one. This combination will allow guests to admire the depths of the ocean while making the most of the warm climate.

The two parts of the structure are connected by three solid legs and a vertical shaft containing a lift and stairway. The size of each disc has been adjusted to local conditions.

Safety was a top priority for both designers of the structure and a team of professionals who worked out the maintenance procedures.

The Water Discus complex was designed to ensure safety at all times, even in the most adverse weather conditions.

The structure sits up on three sturdy legs fixed to the seabed, and the upper disc is suspended above the water surface. These two technical solutions will ensure that Water Discus remains safe even in the event of a fairly high tsunami, which can normally flood the nearest coastal areas.

The disc, located up to 10 metres beneath the surface of the sea, is composed of 21 hotel rooms adjacent to the underwater dive centre and a bar. Each room is integrated with the underwater world as closely as possible, offering a surprisingly direct, yet safe contact with the local flora and fauna.

Transport facilities were designed not only to support logistics but also to improve safety.

The upper deck of the complex, for example, is connected to the shaft and can be used as a landing pad for helicopters, ensuring a quick and convenient transport.

It needed to be a building that would become synonymous with the name of the country.”

The building opened in December 1999 .

Dubai TRAVEL

if you want to escape the cold climate of home Dubai is the right place (I hate cold weather). I was in Dubai in January 2010 and the weather was really great! Unfortunately I stayed there only for 5 days and didn’t have enough time to relax on the beach, I was just running to see as many sightseeings as possible.

Dubai Creek

The natural seawater inlet that cuts through the centre of the city is the historical part of Dubai. You can cross the Creek with the traditional boats (abra or water taxi) and view the old trading port and the dhows from the water. Definitely nice to visit!
