1 Burj Khalifa
Dubai's landmark building is the
Burj Khalifa, which at 829.8 m is

 the tallest building in the world.
 For most visitors a trip to the
 observation deck on the 124th floor
here is a must-do while in the city.
 The views across the city skyline
 from this bird's-eye perspective are
 simply staggering. The slick observation
 deck experience includes a multi-media
 presentation on both Dubai and the
 building of the Burj Khalifa
 (completed in 2010) before
 a high-speed elevator whizzes
you up to the observation deck
for those 360-degree views out
across the skyscrapers to the
 desert on one side and the ocean
on the other. Night-time visits are
particularly popular with photographers
 due to Dubai's famous city-lights
panoramas. Buy your Burj Khalifa
 'At the Top' Entrance Ticket in
advance to avoid long line-ups, especially if you are planning to visit on a weekend.
Back on the ground, wrapping around the Burj Khalifa, are the building's beautifully designed gardens with winding walkways. There are plenty of water features including the Dubai Fountain, the world's tallest performing fountain, modelled on Las Vegas' famous Fountains of Bellagio.
Location: Entry from Dubai Mall, Sheikh Zayed Road, Downtown

2 Dubai Museum
Dubai's excellent museum is housed in the Al-Fahidi Fort, built in 1787 to defend Dubai Creek. The fort's walls are built out of traditional coral-blocks and held together with lime. The upper floor is supported by wooden poles known as "handels", and the ceiling is constructed from palm fronts, mud and plaster. In its history, the fort has served as residence for the ruling family, seat of government, garrison and prison. Restored in 1971 (and again extensively in 1995) it is now the city's premier museum. The entrance has a fascinating exhibition of old maps of the Emirates and Dubai, showing the mammoth expansion that hit the region after the oil boom.
The courtyard is home to several traditional boats and a palm-leaf house with an Emirati wind-tower. The right-hand hall features weaponry and the left-hand hall showcases Emirati musical instruments. Below the ground floor are display halls with exhibits and dioramas covering various aspects of traditional Emirati lifestyle (including pearl fishing and Bedouin desert life) as well as artifacts from the 3,000-4,000 year old graves at Al Qusais archaeological site.
Location: Al-Fahidi Street, Bur Dubai
