One can obtain a picturesque and fantastical view of all of Dubai from its peak. Both “Vertical City” and “A Living Wonder” are used to describe it. Apparently, 22 million man hours went into building the tower.
Sheikh Zayed Mosque, Abu Dhabi
This mosque is a must-visit among Abu Dhabi’s attractions. The Sheikh Zayed Mosque, which is spread out over 30 acres, is the biggest site of worship in the UAE. It took nearly ten years to construct. It is a significant house of worship where classical architecture coexists with gorgeous interiors made of marble, mosaic, gold, and glass. Any Abu Dhabi Tour must include a stop here. It never fails to awe with extravagant interiors decorated with gold, mosaic tiles, glass work, and copious amounts of marble and an exterior made of starkly white stone it stands out dramatically against the emirate’s deep blue sky.
Sharjah Art Museum, Sharjah

Every year, it offers a variety of temporary exhibitions. The museum is renowned for both its important works by European artists who focused on portraying the Arab world and its collection of works by Arabic artists.
The Hajar Mountains, eastern UAE
The Hajar Mountains are in northern Oman and partially border the United Arab Emirates. They have stunning scenery and meandering roads that are perfect for road excursions. They provide chances for hiking, birdwatching, and sightseeing. There are many chances for birdwatching, climbing, and trekking in the area, as well as several beautiful wadis (dry riverbeds; valleys) that are fun to explore.
Al Bidyah Mosque, Fujairah
The oldest mosque in the UAE is Al Bidyah, also referred to as the Ottoman mosque. One of the nicest sites to visit in Fujairah is this mosque. It has a modest yet exquisitely built edifice. It is the most significant historical location in Fujairah. There have been several ceramic and metal artefact excavations over the entire surrounding area, which is an archaeological site. It is 35 kilometres from Fujairah.
Jebel Hafeet, Al Ain
Al Ain’s Jebel Hafeet is a mountain that separates the UAE from Oman. Green Mubazzarah is located in the foothills of Jebel Hafeet, which also offers a panoramic view of the desert from its summit. The second-highest mountain in the United Arab Emirates welcomes you on the twisting path all the way to the top with expansive, lavish desert landscapes. You are rewarded with a view of the area’s expansive swath of desert after the winding mountain road trip.
Corniche, Abu Dhabi
The main Abu Dhabi Island’s western flank is traversed by a road known as the Corniche. It is delightful and quite calming to stroll around. Additionally, the renowned Marina Mall is conveniently close by and accessible from the Corniche.
His Highness Dr. Shaikh Sultan Bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, designated this 4.5-kilometer stretch of land as a protected area in 2007. It is situated on the boundary between Sharjah and Ajman. Previously used as a dump, it has been beautifully restored into a wildlife reserve where birds from all over the world congregate. You can see various unusual species and birds in this location. It has four natural lagoons, which during the year draw about 150 species of birds, including migratory and resident.
Wadi Ghalilah, which is two hours outside of Dubai, is renowned for its higher cliffs and rocks. Due to the wadi’s low elevation and proximity to the water, it is difficult to travel there because of the heat and humidity. And if you intend to hike, be sure to have a companion who has sufficient hiking expertise or has already completed the hike.
Sky view Dubai
Sky View Dubai is the newest and most creative spot in Dubai for fun activities and fascinating new experiences. A platform with a futuristic design, called Sky Views, connects The Address Sky View’s 50-story circular dual towers at their summit. The Sky View observatory, which is located 219.5 metres above Dubai, has a spectacular 25-meter-long glass floor that cantilevers out and offers breathtaking views of the Burj Khalifa. The Panorama 52 restaurant and a panoramic elevator with glass on three sides are also available for viewing by guests. Sky Views offers one-of-a-kind, heart-pounding experiences that are exclusive to the area, such as an outdoor glass slide that transports users from level 53, which is at 219.5 metres, to level 52, which is at 215.5 metres, all inside a transparent glass tube. The Edge Walk, a thrilling air-walk experience that is a regional first, enables guests to stroll onto the exterior perimeter and enjoy the expansive vistas of Burj Khalifa while defying gravity.
