Dubai is known for being home to some of the world’s most extravagant attractions, including such iconic sites as the towering Burj Khalifa building, the Palm Islands, and the Ski Dubai indoor ski resort. But what is less known is that it is also very much a culture-driven destination, allowing visitors to explore stunning historical sites while enjoying the luxuries of the finest contemporary hotels.
