The first thing on our list was to check out the tallest building in the world - Burj Khalifa. The building was completed in January 2010, so it was exciting to see the new city attraction. The views of the city/desert were incredible. It's hard to believe that people actually live there. There were some fascinating exhibits documenting the construction of the building. It was quite inspiring to see how this modern architectural beauty was created. Every detail of the building was incredible. Well done Dubai!
We spent the remainder of our time in the gigantic Dubai Mall. The shopping is out of this world and the aquarium could entertain one for hours. We definitely appreciated the food court that had every American food chain possible. We thoroughly enjoyed our tacos from Baja Fresh and refillable fountain diet cokes. Just a little bit of heaven on earth.
PS - we will be hitting up the indoor ski slopes next time around
