2018, September, Sights & Splendor Of UAE

A Stroll around Downtown Dubai: Dubai’s most luxurious neighborhood

Amazing hotels! Amazing locations! Amazing experiences! These are some of the things that make Downtown Dubai the most happening tourist spot in the city. There’s always some buzz or fanfare in every nook and corner of the neighborhood, that needs to be seen, experienced, lived and explored, which is why all Dubai holiday packages would be incomplete, without a trip to Downtown Dubai.

A usual misconception about planning a trip to the 5’th most visited city in the world is that the entire experience can be appreciated through the standard excursion packages that include a city tour, a desert safari and a dhow cruise. The truth is, these are quicker ways to have a look around without taking too much time.

There’s so much more waiting to be discovered, from flavorsome Emirati cuisine and shopping extravaganzas, to appreciating some of the world’s most striking architectural wonders, as well as other attractions.

With that in mind, and without much ado, let’s get to this month’s edition of the Sights and Splendor of UAE – Downtown Dubai.


What’s it all about: It’s the festival that launches the ‘Neighborhood Restaurant Week’, from 23rd September to 6th October. So if you’re in the city around that time, head over to Downtown Dubai, where you can get value set menus across 13 distinct outlets, along with interactive experiences at chef tables, and specialized workshops.

What’s it all about: It’s not just when crossing a street! Now you have to look on both sides in a movie theater, too. Presenting, the world’s first multi-projection system that launches the 270-degree experience, without the installation of additional screens. It expands film imagery onto three cinema walls, offering audience an uninterrupted, captivating cinematic experience, unlike anything that seen, heard or felt before. A must-see Downtown Dubai attraction! (No pun intended).
