Dont miss the spectacular attractions at Atlantis The Palm: including the chance to swim with dolphins and explore underwater chambers teeming with fish. And Dubai might be located in the middle of a desert, but that doesn't mean you can't ski here: head to the Ski Dubai complex for ski slopes and real snow. For a more traditional Arabian experience, don't miss an excursion to the desert, or a haggling trip to the Gold and Spice Souks.
