You can get to know ‘The Centre of Now’ a little better by hopping on a tour bus or abra and discovering Downtown Dubai.

The Boulevard Bus Tour takes in points of interest such as The Burj Monument and the Together statue. The tour lasts about 30 minutes and bus timings are from 10am to 10pm daily.

Tickets, costing Dhs5, are available at the Dubai Mall trolley bus kiosks and the At The Top reception.

Meanwhile, if you would like to see the best of Downtown from the water you can now hop on the Dubai Fountain Lake Ride. The Dubai Fountain Lake Ride runs from Saturday to Thursday from 5.45pm to 11.15pm.

The rides, operated by the Roads and Transport Authority, will be held every 30 minutes in between subsequent performances of the fountain to ensure the safety of the visitors.

Each abra can accommodate six people per trip. Tickets cost Dhs65 per person. More info
