As a tike growing upward inwards India, Dubai largely meant exclusively 1 affair - Shopping- the house where yous tin store at one-half the cost you'd larn inwards Republic of Republic of India - electronics, cosmetics, exotic chocolates & gold... as well as the house where a huge component of the workforce were Indians...

While (unfortunately) it's however largely known for Shopping, I before long knew amend that Dubai was a lot to a greater extent than than only that ... 

I was 28 when I showtime visited as well as 'experienced' Dubai! From Gravity defying skyscrapers to Wallet defying Gold Souks, from 'who's the largest of them all' Malls to every bit trivial 100 sq feet shops inwards the old souk as well as from diamond studded personal jets to century old wooden abras - the city's got them all... It's a compassion Dubai's known exclusively for shopping!

So here's my listing of Top 10 things to produce inwards Dubai:

Hop onto an Abra - a little wooden boat that ferries passengers across the creek - at a Waterbus station at Deira (accessible from the Old Souk) as well as ride across till Bur Dubai - to larn a magnificient stance of the skyline every bit yous canvass across the Dubai creek...  At almost 1 dirham i way, the Abra is a great means to sense local H2O transportation, grab the Dubai Skyline from a dissimilar perspective as well as grab upward alongside locals ferrying across the creek.
