Look Up, Step Out: Dubai, a Charmed City Where Luxury Meets Novelty

Look Up, Step Out: Dubai, a Charmed City Where Luxury Meets Novelty

Aside from being the most populated city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Dubai has also gained for itself a reputation for luxury and modern architecture all without compromising its old world charm. Loveteam James Reid and Nadine Lustre had their firsthand experience of the city and all it had to offer when they went there a few weeks ago for their concert tour. Here are things not to miss should you ever find yourself in Dubai:


Fly high with Skydive Dubai. There are probably a lot of reasons why celebrities choose to tick off their sky dive bucket list item in Dubai. The top reason though, you ask? Being able to jump off the plane with the exquisite view of The Palms, a man-made island in the shape of a palm tree. 


Experience the Arabian Desert. One simply shouldn’t leave Dubai without the true Arabian Desert experience. Try Sandboarding, quad biking, dune bashing, or all of the above. Make sure to complete your trip with camel rides, henna, and traditional barbecues.


Stand tall at the Burj Khalifa. The world tallest tower standing at 828 meters gives you an amazing view of Dubai’s skyline—don’t miss it whether you opt to enjoy it from its view deck or outside. 


Stroll at the Jumeirah beach. Located at the coast of the Persian Gulf, this spot is just perfect for sunsets and people watching. With the recent completion of nearby constructions, now people can get to enjoy food kiosks and pop-up coffee shops.
