The eclectic transformation of Dubai from a bedouin desert to an astounding metropolis is viewed in awe by the world travellers. From the ridiculous constructions to the indoor ski resorts, the city is enriched with everything; I mean everything that you need for a splendid vacation.
However, the tourism team of this wonderland is trying to push and promote all the once in a lifetime experiences (that you will only get in Dubai).

Here are the Hidden Gems In Dubai that no one is going to tell you.
