    You see the pictures in magazines and videos on the tv, but it is not until you visit this tower you get the perspective of just how tall it is.
    The tallest building in the world, you get half a mile up in the air in just a minute in the fastest elevator in the world !
    You need to pick a clear day for best views as sometimes dust storms will obstruct the views.
    Out of the elevator it becomes apparent how high you are because you tower over the other massive buildings below !
    Plenty of photo opportunities but the professional ones on offer I think are well over priced at 500 dirhams for 2
    I would prefer 1 photo included in the already expensive entry price.
    But all this said you are standing in a piece of history.

    by far the most superb show ...... its done every eve. the fountains the music the ambience the crowd and the whole environment around is just superb. the only regret is that is finishes very fast. one can easily see this show for more time. but every good thing comes to an end so does this show. but if you wanna have more of it , its done every hour so you can sit have a nice time around and enjoy again.

    Pure magic to have this parade of beauty and color in the midst of the dessert!
    Best in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the heat.

    Global Village always has something new to offer. I love my visit there all the time. There are so many varieties of things to see, experience, eat. The lighting is also good. Lots of activities to do.

    My first visit to Dubai since the Trident Tower was opened due to Covid-19, an amazing day out, in fact we visited twice during our stay. Normally I stay at the Atlantis so get free visits with a stay at the hotel, this time I was more than happy to pay twice to visit and found it very reasonable and value for money. We also bought a meal deal in advance and saved our self a few quid. The free water shoes is also a very good addition, especially in May-Oct when there is extreme heat walking on the stone floors will burn your feet. My only slight criticism, Aquaventure please reduce your plastic! Each bag of water shoes doesn't need to be in a plastic bag!

    Absolutely recommend! Very chilled out and multiple choices of restaurants and cafes. The beach is stunning and the walk is lovely. I always go there when in Dubai.

    If I could only give one advice, I would say go early if you can! The park opens at 10am. We were there early so there wasn’t any queue for all the activities! It started to get very crowded after 1pm and looked chaotic. We were glad we came early :)
    The coldness is manageable, no need for long johns underneath. Just a sweater or hoodie underneath the thermal wear provided will be ok. I think because there’s no wind so you don’t feel that cold. This is coming from a family who had never live in a temperate country.
    The chairlift takes you to the top of the slope (exciting!) and brings you back down if you don’t ski . It’s just surreal that outside the slope structure is 40C and inside is -4C!
    My boys took the discovery lesson and they enjoyed it. Only the two of them to one instructor in their time slot, so they were able to ski down the gentle slope many times!
    The online booking system only allows those 12 & under to be in the children learning group. The on-site staff allowed my 14yo to be in the children group. The adult group had more people so not as fun. So booking onsite allows more flexibility and I think having a friendly rep also helps :)

    It's actually a great way to get to the Deira souk avoiding all the traffic by road. Also an experience which is safe and economical.

    If the weather is good; you get a fun and breezy ride.

    Good collection of various fishes and sea creatures. The scale of the aquarium is so small that you can cover it in an hour. Ambience is good but not worth the money. It’s too expensive for the offering.

    The Souk Madunat Jumeirah mall has a very unique old style building, very pretty shops line up nicely. Very instagrammable, also have couple of nice restaurants and coffee shop. My favorite always the Belgium cafe with it’s signature dishes and Hoegarden Rosee. They also have rivwr tour by boat, just like Venice in Middle East! The Burj Al Arab handsomely standing tall as the background of pictures and boat man is very helpful to take our pictures and areange the pose. Very noce experience.
