Nowadays, due to globalization and the invention of new ways of travelling, people have a great opportunity to visit more exotic countries around the world. Dubai is an amazing city which can fascinate everyone easily. It is very modernized and full of new technologies. Fortunately, I got great opportunity of visiting the wonderful city. Dubai created many unforgettable memories for me. Thus, I decided to write an article to share my amazing experience with other travel-lovers. There were countless things which impressed me to a certain extent. However, the best way to explore its richness is to take a look at different types of stunning architecture Dubai has.

The most shocking and breathtaking is well-renovated Burj KhalifaThis stunning skyscraper was actually the first thing which made me in love with Dubai. It is an outstanding structure which is famous for being the tallest in the world (828 m). In the heart of downtown, shinning Burj Khalifa can be seen from any spot in the city. The high speed elevators not only do bring you to the 124th floor, but also tell you the history of the building. In addition, there is a great roofless view point on Dubai’s downtown full of skyscrapers and lights.

Furthermore, you have an ability to notice that all other structures’ roofs are located in the clouds. This amazing building is also known for the luxury At.Mosphere restaurant and the five star Armani hotel! There are countless stores for shopping and 900 apartments and it is all in one skyscraper.

Dubai is an amazing place where you are able to perfectly combine two completely opposite seasons. Indeed, in one day it is possible to enjoy freezing weather of real winter even by being in the hot desert.

My family and I visited Dubai during the beginning of summer time, specifically in May. In this month the weather in Dubai is already super-hot. Everyone is suffering from heat. As a result, we were so tired of 40+ weather, so Ski Dubai Snow Park became our salvation.

This incredible 22500 square meters structure has the size of three football fields. It is also covered with real snow and maintains the temperature from  -1 to -4 degrees. Ski Dubai Snow park is a great place to do skiing or snowboarding. You will be provided with all equipment and warm winter clothes. Moreover, if you are not keen on those kind of sports, you can enter the park to have other kinds of fun. For instance, you are most welcomed to build a snowman or take a chair lift. This kind of elevators give people an awesome chance to take a look at the park from the top spot. Quick temperature change would make you freeze faster, so Avalanche café on the slope will be the best for you. Do not forget to try the famous Arabic hot chocolate, which will warm you up!

The best way to know more about Muslim religion and culture in general is to visit a mosque. Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is the most beautiful constructed building I have ever seen. The 4th largest mosque in the world is fully made of over 100000 tons of pure white marble. This building is stunning beyond words, definitely worth seeing. Despite the heat of weather outside, white coloring reflection makes the place inside the mosque a cool oasis full of fresh air.

In order to enter, visitors have to wear a specific mandatory clothing according to the Muslim religion. Furthermore, the body cleaning procedure must be done as well. Tourists who do not have required dressing can borrow it. In the main prayer hall visitors have a great opportunity to see the world’s largest hand-knotted carpet. As a result, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque creates a great experience about Islam culture for foreign people.

In conclusion, for me, as a Hospitality program student, Dubai is one the meaningful cities worth visiting. It is perfectly developed for tourism. The architecture described above not only can shock by its magnificence, but also creates the unbelievable experience about the uniqueness of Dubai culture. Those incredible structures and buildings created in a real desert put a great impact on your life. The entertainment provided will make you fall in love with the city. By travelling there, you change your world perception. So if you are a tourist seeking for real adventures in an interesting environment, Dubai is your destination!
