    It was a great experience. Got to see a lot of things from secluded dunes to luxurious malls to amazing skylines to the old archeological sites. Dubai is a mix of diverse things offering something for everyone. We had the trip of our lifetime. We would definitely want to come back again and recommend our families too. We would like to thank Qrated world for making the trip even more memorable by taking care of the smallest details.
