Eat, play, and dine along the banks of this renowned Dubai landmark that has transformed the city's landscape.
La Perle, a visual masterwork by famed director Franco Dragone, raises the bar on theatrics. This production dazzles audiences night after night with spectacular costumes, high-tech projections, amazing gymnastics, superb stunts, and a plot inspired by the liveliness of Dubai. All of the action takes place on a custom-built 'aqua stage,' which floods with water and drains in seconds, setting the stage for daring water-themed feats like heart-stopping falls from heights of up to 25 meters.
Al Habtoor City is a bustling hub with three five-star hotels, a dining destination, and the La Perle by Dragone theatre. From zingy Mexican specialities at Zoco to South African steaks at The City Grill and Parisian pastries at BQ – French Kitchen, restaurants here serve the best in foreign flavours. Following that, the V Lounge on the 30th floor of the V Hotel is a popular stop, where a lively tempo and sky-high city vistas never fail to impress.
Safa Park is a popular neighbourhood hangout and one of the city's original green spots. You won't be disappointed with a jogging track, separate football and basketball grounds, and plenty of play places for kids. Come early to take advantage of the sun. To light up mid-day meals, we recommend bringing your own picnic basket or using one of the public BBQ grilling stations. When the kids have had their fill of the monkey bars and swings, take them on a ride on the park's train.
The Dubai Water Canal has altered the city – literally – since it opened in 2016. Its 3.2-kilometre-long rivers have virtually turned parts of the city into islands. Three elegant pedestrian bridges span the Canal, allowing tourists to pass at strategic places and soak in the breathtaking views. The unique arc-shaped bridge is well-known; it was renamed the Tolerance Bridge in 2017 to commemorate the 22nd International Day of Tolerance.
It is necessary to cruise the Dubai Canal to truly understand its enormity. Xclusive Yachts is an excellent option, with luxury cruises departing from the Marasi Marina in Business Bay on a regular basis. You'll also pass under Sheikh Zayed Road Bridge, where the iconic colourful waterfall gushes overhead – don't worry, you won't get splashed because sensors instantly turn off the waterworks when a boat is detected nearby. Riding the Dubai Ferry, an official mode of public transportation that connects key shorelines across the city is a great way to see additional maritime wonders while on vacation.
