Discover Dubai with Cebu Pacific’s New Long-Haul Flights

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

One of the most visited cities in the world, Dubai promises a variety of adventures and over-the-top experiences. Known for its glitz and glamour, this cosmopolitan city at the heart of the United Arab Emirates is a dazzling destination that caters to all kinds of travelers.

Among the attractions that draw tourists to Dubai are the Palm Islands, the largest artificial archipelago on earth. Often heralded as the eighth wonder of the world, it consists of three man-made islands—the Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira—each coming in the shape of a palm tree. The islands feature countless luxury hotels, fine dining establishments, and shopping malls, as well as exclusive beachfront residences, many of which are owned by big-name celebrities and VIPs.

Dubai is also home to the Burj Al Arab, the only seven-star hotel in the world. One of the city’s most notable landmark, it is shaped like a billowing ship’s sail facing the Arabian Gulf.

Often referred to as the Jewel of Dubai, the Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest building standing at 2,716 feet, which is seven times the height of London’s Big Ben and can be seen from 60 miles away. At the outdoor observation deck called At the Top on the 124th floor, one can enjoy a sweeping and breathtaking view of the city and its sprawling desert.

Travelers can also head to the Dubai Fountains and get entranced by a spectacle of water, light, and music. The 900-foot long fountain shoots water up to 500 feet into the air set to classical and contemporary Arabian and world music.

Paying tribute to tradition

Amid the towering skyscraper and impressive architectural masterpieces, Dubai continues to make preserving its historical sites a priority. Tourists can take a peek into the emirates’ transformation, from a pearling village to a modern metropolis, at the Dubai Museum. Housed in the Al Fahidi Fort, the oldest existing building in the city, the museum features life-sized dioramas that depict everyday life before the discovery of oil in the 1960s.

Travelers can also visit the Jumeirah Mosque, beautifully adorned in Arabic calligraphy and intricate carvings. Here, they can join the guided tours to get an insight into the Islamic religion and culture.

Those who are serious about shopping should take a stroll through Dubai’s traditional souks, or marketplace. At the Textile Souk, they can find luxurious saris, silk, and other fabrics in various hues, weaves, and embroidery from all over the world. The labyrinthine Gold Souk is filled with shops selling magnificent jewelry, from the delicate and intricate, to the bold and loud, while the Spice Souk tantalizes with its colorful array of aromatic spices of all varieties.

A thrill-seeker’s paradise

Travelers with a thirst for adventure will be spoiled for choice in Dubai. They get their adrenaline rush by trying out sandboarding or taking a camel ride down the sand dunes. Desert safaris in 4x4 vehicles also promise an unforgettable rollercoaster ride.

For the complete desert camping experience, tourists can feast on a delicious barbecue dinner under the stars while being entertained by traditional folk and belly dance performances.

Daredevils of all ages are off to a big splash at the Wild Wadi Waterpark, which has over 30 rides and attractions. These include the Jumeirah Sceirah, where guests can slither down a 120-meter slide at an astonishing speed of 80 kilometers per hour.

From time-honored traditions to ultra-modern masterpieces, laid-back tours to daring explorations, there is plenty to discover in Dubai. Now, everyJuan can realize their dream Dubai experience as the Philippines’ largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific, recently launched its long-haul, low-cost flights to Dubai.
