When one thinks of Dubai, what comes to mind is certainly the luxurious commercial centre of the UAE. The up-scale malls and the Burge Khalifa are certainly worth a visit. But here are a few attractions you might miss out on in Dubai.

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

This is one of the grandest mosques in the world and is placed within a wonderful garden. Inside the mosque is the longest handloom carpet in the world which apparently took 12000 artisans to finish in 2 years.

Qasr Al-Hosn

What was once a fort built to protect the freshwater well is now an exhibition centre. Inside are the ancient stories of the people of Abu Dhabi on display. This attraction is just a 47-minute drive from Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort.
