Dubai is home to the world's tallest building - the Burj Khalifa stands at a whopping 2722 feet!
Not only that, with an observation deck only 901 feet from its peak, it's the perfect place to take in the sights!
It's not all fast-paced city life though, there are plenty of gorgeous sandy beaches to sun yourself on.
History buffs shouldn't miss a stroll around old Dubai for a taste of the local past.
Jumeriah Beach, Dubai, Asia
Jumeriah Beach is just a short way along from Burj Al Arab - Dubai's most famous landmark - and has great views of this spectacular building!
Relax on the private and quiet white sands, looking out onto the sparkling ocean.
Take a dip in the sea, or if the salt's too much for you, visit one of the beachfront swimming pools.
Stay fit and make new friends at one of the racket sports courts - someone is always up for a game!
