6-You can also get a glimpse into the history of the UAE at the Dubai Museum "Al Fahidi Fort" for Dh3 for adults, and Dh1 for children under the age of 6.

Built in 1928, this particular museum could give any visitor ample insight into a remote desert site that had been a centre for metal working 3,000 years ago.

8- Cruising along Dubai's latest attraction, the Dubai Water Canal, with a backdrop of Dubai's awe-inspiring skyline in petrol heritage abra can be an experience to remember. You can surely indulge in one for Dh25 for a whole hour.

10- The Dubai Fountain at the Dubai Mall is a grand experience, whether you are watching it for the first time or the 100th time and now, to make the experience even better, the organisers have set up a fountain broadwalk to take you closer than ever to the fountain.

Open between 5pm and 11pm daily, the experience is only Dh20 per person for those older than four years of age. Tickets are available at the Fountain promenade, Burj Park and At the Top, Burj Khalifa ticket counters.
