Listen along to recorded audio commentary as you travel through the heart of Dubai's modern downtown, admiring Burj Khalifa, the tallest skyscraper in the world. See Burj Al Arab, a super-posh hotel designed in the shape of a ship's sail, before passing the glitzy facades of the tree-shaped Palm Jumeirah island. Your route ends at the Atlantis resort, where you'll spend 6.5 hours at its sprawling Aquaventure waterpark. The waterslides alone offer plenty of heart-pounding thrills, as you brave Aquaconda, the world's largest waterslide, and feel the weightlessness of Zoomerango. Experience the nine-story drop of the Leap of Faith, or wind around Slitherine, the world's first dual waterslide. You can tube down Shark Attack through a shark-infested lagoon, ride the tides of the Torrent wave pool, or find seaside serenity along the golden sands of Aquaventure Beach. And you can also appease your appetite easily, with 16 restaurants and food kiosks to choose from around the park.
