Travelup ReviewsNew York is one of the world’s major cities and is a financial and cultural powerhouse on the international stage. There are so many attractions in New York and it can be difficult to decide what to do when time is limited. Travelup Reviews has produced the following list of five places to visit to ensure that travellers have the most fulfilling holiday possible:

1. The New York City Skyline From The Empire State Buliding

Countless movies have immortalised the inimitable skyline of New York, and its stunning vistas of skyscrapers and twinkling lights are familiar to people from across the globe. Nothing can prepare the tourist for the spellbinding experience of witnessing the New York skyline first-hand, however, and one of the best places to view the shimmering city scape is from the observation deck of the Empire State Building’s 86th storey.

Alternatively, the Top of the Rock deck at the very top of 30 Rockefeller Plaza is equally exhilarating, with wonderful 360 degree views of the whole of Manhattan.

2. Times Square

No visit to New York would be complete without a walk past the billboards and bright lights of Times Square. Tourists can enjoy a Broadway show, shop in one of Times Square’s flagship department stores, or simply take a moment to marvel at the effervescent spirit of New York.

3. Central Park

With over 840 acres of lakes, meadows and woods, Central Park is the quintessential

urban park. This Manhattan oasis includes a zoo, a carousel, a theatre and skating rink, and is a natural paradise in the heart of New York.

4. Museums

Museum Mile, which stretches from East 82nd East 105th Streets, is a world class centre of culture, with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Guggenheim Museum and the Museum of the City of New York amongst the plethora of art galleries and museums on offer.

5. Brooklyn Bridge

A triumph of engineering and construction, Brooklyn Bridge is an emblem of New York’s enterprising energy. From wherever the Brooklyn Bridge is viewed, it is a masterpiece of design and execution.


Dubai is famous as one of the most lavish and spectacular cities in the world. Built almost entirely out of a sudden boom in oil profits during the 1970s and onwards, Dubai is a vigorously enthusiastic expression of opulence and modernistic ingenuity. Hence the owners and architects of Dubai have demonstrated a remarkable obsession with building the very biggest and most impressive spectacles in the world, and they have not disappointed. The Burj Khalifa building is by far the tallest manmade structure of all time and a testament to the ambition of the people of Dubai.

TravelupThroughout its brief history Dubai has been home to numerous structures that were the world’s tallest in their day. The Burj al Arab hotel was the tallest hotel and its iconic design means it’s still one of the most recognisable skyscrapers in the world today.

The Burj Khalifa has taken skyscrapers to a new level though. Standing at an incredible 829.8 metres it is over 300 metres taller than the next tallest skyscraper, the Taipei 101. The Burj Khalifa has over 160 floors, the world’s highest nightclub, restaurant and a whopping 24,348 windows. Separate from the central Dubai skyline, the Burj Khalifa rises impressively out of the new 2 square kilometre industrial park called Downtown Dubai.

Although the Burj Khalifa is largely dedicated to over a thousand offices, visitors are welcome. The Burj Khalifa is complete with a set of restaurants, a nightclub and the world’s second highest swimming pool. The Burj Khalifa’s greatest attraction has to be its observation deck. The outdoor observation deck grants visitors unbelievable views not only over the impressive skyline of Dubai, but across the endless stretches of Arabian Desert that Dubai sits in.
