Many of Dubai’s must-see sites are concentrated in this area of the city. Take the lift to the top of the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa, before doing a spot of shopping in one of the largest shopping centres in the world: The Dubai Mall. If you’re in town for the evening, the mesmerising light show at The Dubai Fountain is not to be missed.
Whichever activity you choose to work up an appetite, refuel at one of the many places to eat in Downtown Dubai. Integral to the city is its fine dining scene, where guests are able to sample award-winning fare created by world-renowned chefs, from Indian dishes to pan Asian cuisine to classic French food.
If you’re touring the city throughout the day and are pining for something cheap and cheerful, there are also lots of casual restaurants in Downtown Dubai that are perfect for a quick bite. Fuel up for the day at one of the city’s many brunch spots or drop by one of its trendy cafes for an insta-friendly lunch with a proper cup of coffee. You’ll also find a ton of all-day eateries that cater for any time of day – perfect if you haven’t planned ahead!
