Residing in the Ibn Battuta mall in Dubai, this clock was built to honour the creations of the famous 12th century inventor Al-Jazari. The enourmous Elephant clock is essentially a tribute to the 11 foot Castle astronomical clock designed by him. 

Day 2. Dubai Miracle garden

The largest natural flower garden in the world by a nautical mile, this magnificent place holds over 45 million flowers. Covering a massive 775,000 square feet of land, the garden is yet another testimony to Dubai expertise in achieving the improbable. What's more impressive? Well, it thrives in Dubai's dry and harsh climate!

Dubai has a habit of proving that it can sustain anything and Ski Dubai sure goes on to make its case stronger. In a scorching climate where ice is not even a distant possibility, Ski Dubai allows visitors to experience skiing, snowing and basically a giant snowy mountain. Take that!

Day 4. The Souk at the Wafi mall

You'd have to go out of you way to visit the great Red. The farther you drive away from the coastal Dubai, the sand starts morphing into brilliant hues of orange-red, making the scenery surreal. This palce is also quite popular for dune bashing and camel rides.
