For tourists, this translates to unprecedented experiences, touched by strokes of sheer brilliance and perfection. Fresh out of Dubai’s bag of larger-than-life creations, we present you the hottest of what this dazzling metropolis has to offer in 2019.
Love Lake: A Romance Seeker’s Paradise
The city has been recently engaged in a passionate love affair with the man-made Love Lake, a fact that can be verified through countless check-ins at this fascinating marvel, lying 700 metres from the tip of Al Qudra. The city’s obsession with bringing to life architecturally unimaginable shapes extends to this wonderful lake that has been constructed in the shape of two interlocking hearts. Furthermore, the trees planted on the periphery of the lake will spell the word ‘Love’ when given an aerial view. The Love Lake is situated bang in the middle of a desert, a perfect backdrop for a romantic evening.
Crazy Land at Base Dubai: For a Reverberating Party Scene

The MB&F M.A.D.Gallery: Not Just For Art Lovers
Prepared to be amused by the brilliance of Gaby Wormann, a German artist showcasing 16 mechanical insects at the gallery! What is bewildering about these mechanical exoskeletons called “MeCre” is that they are created using tiny components such as gears, plates, balance springs and filaments. Wormann’s work has been inspired by the writings of Franz Kafka and the work of artists H.R. Giger and Pierre Matter. The creations are mind-boggling and appeal to an audience beyond the art connoisseurs for their ability to convey strong messages simply and beautifully.
Family Fun at the Pointe, Palm Jumeirah
A new feather in the Dubai’s cap of plush neighbourhoods, the Pointe, when fully-operational, will offer unparalleled shopping, dining and leisure activities in its sprawling 1.4 million square feet. Over 70 shops and restaurants will cover the West Side and West Side Marina and East Side and East Side Marina. A plaza and events space will be constructed in the middle for concerts. Facing the Atlantis, the Pointe already has a cinema, a gym, a children’s play area and a handful of restaurants and shops functional.
