For a mix of modern culture, age-old tradition, and futuristic wow, few places rival Dubai. Here, dune buggy desert adventures, hot-air balloon trips, high-speed rides at IMG Worlds of Adventure, and skydiving over the Palm Jumeirah can round out a day defined by world-class shopping at Dubai Mall and entertainment that includes The Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival, which brings a star-studded lineup to the city every year. Visit the Dubai Opera or pop into the Burj Khalifa and spend a day along Dubai Creek exploring the gold, textile, and spice souks. Cultural offerings in Dubai abound, with a small sampling including the contemporary art museum Jameel Arts Centre and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Library, as well as galleries in major art hubs like Alserkal Avenue in Al Quoz, which champions both established and emerging artists.
