If you’re planning a visit anytime soon to Dubai, a city in the United Arab Emirates, you’ll probably be overwhelmed with having too many things to do rather than being lost for how to spend your time. So to help you make decisions, here are three of the things in Dubai that we’d considered a definite must-not-miss.

Burj Khalifa

One of the most famous buildings in Dubai, the UAE, and the whole world is the Burj Khalifa, known for being the tallest building in the world. You can see it from anywhere in the city, but we’d recommend taking a high-speed elevator to the observation deck for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Ski Dubai

Dubai may be located in the desert, but that doesn’t mean you can’t ski while you’re there. Because located in a mall, there is the third-largest indoor ski slope, which also offers other activities such as tubing and penguin visits, making it a great activity for the entire family.

Dubai Frame

As if the Burj Khalifa isn’t enough, Dubai also boasts the largest picture frame in the world, called the Dubai frame. Gold and glistening, it stands at 500 feet tall, and you can also take an elevator to the top where you can walk along a clear 313-foot glass walkway. We wouldn’t recommend it for the faint of heart.
