Once you’re all settled in and ready to traverse the streets—or should we say “street”—of Dubai, psych yourself up for these enthralling attractions you’ve got to visit on Sheikh Zayed Road:
1. Ski Dubai
Yes, you read that right! Ski Dubai is a ski resort right in the middle of the scorching hot desert, and also one of the most exciting places to visit. As one of the largest indoor ski resorts in the world (no surprise there), you’ll get to slide your way across a frozen zipline, ride a bobsled, play with the penguins, build a snowman, and actually ski, of course. There’s something for everyone at this world-class destination – and you get to people-watch from the inside too! You can find it inside the Mall of the Emirates (believe us, you won’t miss it).
2. Dubai Marina Mall
Shopping enthusiasts will love this modern addition to Sheikh Zayed Road. Boasting a breathtaking waterfront location, Dubai Marina Mall is light and airy, and a relaxed shopping reprieve from the usual busyness of other malls in the city. As one of the many Emaar malls in Dubai, this shopping location sports the best views of the Dubai Marina and welcomes all shopaholics to peruse its eclectic mix of high-street fashion outlets and affordable brands. Grab a delightful lunch at one of the many waterfront eateries or enjoy a relaxing boat ride along the marina after traversing its stores.

4. Gold & Diamond Park
If you believe that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then the Gold & Diamond Park is certainly a sight for sore eyes. This treasure-trove hosts some of the world’s finest precious stones, jewellery, high-end personal accessories and more. Admire the jewellery and billions worth millions, or choose to custom-make your very own design at the hands of the expert artisans, if you can afford to! This iconic location draws in locals and tourists alike to marvel at the plethora of shiny objects it houses, so be sure to grab a coffee at one of the food and beverage outlets on-site and traipse this showstopper of a destination.
5. Take in the skyscrapers
It goes without saying that Sheikh Zayed Road is brimming with awe-inspiring skyscrapers that tower over the bustling cityscape. The Dubai skyline has continued to swell over recent years, with the undisputed Burj Khalifa claiming the spot as the world’s tallest tower. However, there are many other notable buildings that are worth keeping a lookout for.
6. Reimagine the past, present and future at Dubai Frame
The Dubai Frame is an iconic structure that “frames” old and new Dubai, bridging together the past, present and future developments of the city’s incredible transformation. A visit to the Dubai Frame is an absolute must, allowing you to take in the breathtaking panoramic views of the city as you witness a celebration of Dubai’s transition from its humble origins to the booming metropolis that it is today, plus a showcase of its ambitious future developments.
7. Venture into the Dubai Creek
A trip to Dubai’s historic natural saltwater creek has got to be on your must-visit list. Once the lifeblood of locals, Dubai Creek is where the city’s very first port and pearling industry thrived. Explore old and new Dubai aboard an abra, a traditional water taxi, by purchasing a one-way ticket, or rent one for an hour to explore the waterway even further. Look forward to soaking up the scenic views of the city’s traditional houses, wind towers and more, all of which are starkly contrasted by the glass facades and other modern-day buildings that represent contemporary Dubai. Fun fact: abra translates to “to cross” in Arabic!
