People keep talking about the property bust in Dubai but it was easy for casual visitors like us to overlook. After all, the home of the world's tallest building, tallest hotel and largest shopping mall has so many amazing attractions.
Atlantis, The Palm has over 1,500 rooms, a water park and a place for visitors to interact with dolphins.
Dubai is still a shopper's paradise. Here's a peek inside Dubai Mall, the world's largest with 1,200 shops.
Our visit coincided with the 40th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates.
Family attractions, like the Wild Wadi Water Park, abound.
Ski Dubai, an indoor winter wonderland is one of a kind.
The super-luxurious Burj Al Arab hotel, with its incredible design, stands proudly on a man-made island.
Back in the "old town," a view across the Dubai Creek.
While its population is mostly Arabic, Dubai is home to many different people and cultures.

Have you ever been to Dubai? What did you think of it?
Really your selection shot is great , Really its amazing that photos take and tell us about things to do in Dubai and places to visit.
The most interesting thing about your article that you select the places that is really deserve to be visited. Your photos is more than touristic photo by camera lens but by lens of travel artist
thanks and waiting more shots
Property bust that tourists don’t see: sounds like Vegas! I’d love to see Dubai one day — the indoor ski slope kills me.
Vegas is the place it reminded me of, actually! Is that still going on there?
Dubai looks so pretty with all the new buildings and attractions. What $$ can do nowadays is crazy. (Still want to see it sometime though with my own eyes ^^)
It’s certainly a fascinating place to explore…I love architecture so just seeing all the incredible buildings was enjoyable for me!
Amazing photos! Dubai seems to be beautiful..
Some parts are, though it felt overdeveloped and a bit cold to us…
Lovely photos but it’s crazy to think that the UAE is only 40 years old! I’m going in February so thanks for these pics! I’m excited to go now!
Fun! Don’t miss some of the attractions like the water parks and dolphin experience (if it’s warm enough) =)
