You'll find plenty of exciting things to do in Dubai, a monument to human ingenuity built on desert sands. Head downtown at night to check out the shining lights of Dubai Fountains, one of the world's largest choreographed water features, located on a man-made lake. Climb up the nearby Burj Khalifa to enjoy the skyscraper's observation deck and restaurant. Visitors wanting even more dining and shopping options can head to Dubai Marina Walk, an area filled with restaurants with waterfront views.
