If you’re looking for a city with attitude, Dubai is one destination that is on a power trip. Home to the world’s largest mall, tallest building, largest dancing fountain, tallest ferris wheel (2016), and biggest natural flower garden, this port city-turned-global metropolis is conspicuous and proud of it.

Not surprisingly, there are quite a few ways to let the city make a lasting impression on you; try a scenic cruise down Dubai Creek or take in the vistas from one of the number of rooftop lounge bars for a bird’s eye gawk and gasp. Indoor snow ski in the desert or sleep with the fish in a luxury underwater hotel suite — if you can dream it, the World Expo 2020 host probably already has it.
