Brand-new mega-attraction, Deep Dive Dubai, broke the internet recently as everyone from HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to Will Smith (and What’s On) paid a visit. The 60-metre deep pool, which comes complete with an epic sunken city, welcomes visitors of all abilities, from those who have their PADI course, to beginner divers or even those who wish to snorkel on the surface of the water. Once the world opens up, we predict visitors will be coming from far and wide across the globe to get a slice of the action.

The man-made palm tree-shaped Palm Jumeirah island is one of the most famous in the world (you can even see it from space), due to its mind-blowing engineering, and of course being home to some of the most expensive property in Dubai. It’s a buzzing metropolis of residences, lavish hotels and cool restaurants, and now, you can see it in all its glory from 52-metres high. New observation deck, The View, stands atop the Palm Tower, and gives its visitors spine-tingling 360-degree views of the Palm Jumeirah and beyond to Downtown Dubai, Dubai Marina and more. The experience features multiple interactive touch points for guests to discover how the world-famous island was conceptualised and developed.
