Dubai continues to attract worldwide tourists because of its easy access and world-class infrastructure. On your next trip, try these five fun things and see these places.
1) Deep Dive Dubai: Explore a sunken city
Deep Dive Dubai boasts the world’s deepest pool at 60 meters, filled with 14 million litres of freshwater, equivalent to six Olympic-sized swimming pools, in which one can see a sunken city complete with a car, motorbike, a fully furnished apartment with artwork, and a fully stocked library.
60 feet under water, even the mundane exercises like riding an exercise bike, playing foosball, or playing chess take on a whole new meaning. In order to participate in underwater activities, one must be a certified diver. Rookies can try snorkeling or scuba diving up to 12 meters deep.

A unique dining experience awaits you in the heart of Dubai. A 50m high table suspended in the air will serve a three-course meal. It is necessary for customers to pre-book their meal preferences from a menu designed like a passport.
As soon as the party is elevated, a resident DJ spins chartbusting tunes to get the party started. This mini carnival atmosphere is enhanced by the stunning views of Dubai’s landscape, the crisp air, and the excellent food and drinks. Birthdays, anniversaries, marriage proposals, and other special occasions are often celebrated here, as well as birthdays and anniversaries.
