Dubai is a fascinating place. Probably not like any other place I've ever visited. Everything is new, shiny and luxurious. You are guaranteed to see something spectacular and never to run out of fun things to do. That's just how the city is: One big playground!
If there are ANY place in the world where you should wear shiny gold trousers, it should be in Dubai! Because, a) you don't stand out from all the other shiny golden stuff and b)they are awesome and so is Dubai. During the day, we spent most of our time walking around in the mall which obviously had aircon and therefore pants were perfect.
At the top of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world! If you ever go to Dubai you have to go there. We spent a bit axtra on VIP tickets, which not only got us access to the 148th floor but also saved us so much time! Where most people had to que for hours, we literally went right up!
