Start your first day in Dubai with a bang on a trip to the legendary Burj Khalifa. Officially the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa is a fine example of the majestic aura that encapsulates everything in Dubai. During your visit to the Burj Khalifa, you'll get to take an elevator straight to the 124th floor of the building. Breathtaking, 360 degree views of the enchanting Dubai skyline await you at the observation deck offering plenty of fantastic photo opportunities. You can also stop for a bite at the many restaurants available in the tower.
Next, you'll be visiting the equally enchanting Dubai Aquarium. The world's largest indoor suspended aquarium awaits you with over 140 different species of sea creatures including penguins, sea lions, fish and over 400 types of sharks alone! The Dubai Aquarium also features a 48 metre long glass tunnel which will give you the opportunity to view the underwater world up close and personal! All in all, the aquarium is a great way to spend a couple of hours in Dubai.
The final stop of your first day in Dubai is the famous Dubai Fountains. Ideal for a quiet evening with your loved ones, the Dubai Fountains feature a tantalising dance of lights and water that'll leave you awestruck. With over 6600 lights that sync up with water jets that go as high as 152 meters, the resulting medley is beautiful beyond words. The cherry on top of the cake is the fact that the Dubai Fountains show happens with the towering Burj Khalifa in the background!
