Dubai's skyline is dominated by the world's tallest building and a trip up to the 124th floor has to be one to tick off the things to do list, from the observation deck the view is phenomenal.

It's a country that tries hard to impress. You can ski down a snowy mountain in the middle of the desert, skydive above a manmade island and swim with sharks in the world's largest mall. You can spend an entire day in Burj Khalifa shopping mall and still have not seen it all. Along with its 1,200-plus shops and 150 restaurants, the venue is home to an indoor theme park, an ice rink, a huge indoor waterfall, a choreographed fountain and a giant aquarium and underwater zoo. Palm Jumeirah, a manmade island in the shape of a palm tree, has a vast selection of top notch hotels. If you're a bit of a night owl, there's plenty of terraces, restaurants and cocktail bars to choose from.
