Groupon’s Guide to Dubai

An emirate overlooking the Persian Sea, Dubai is famous for its tall, glistening glass buildings reaching far into the sky, large futuristic shopping malls, and luxury lifestyle. Boasting impressive architecture, Dubai is a suitable place for revelling in the sandy beaches and warm waters of the Arabian Sea and enjoying the vivid nightlife.

Guests may visit the Lost Chambers Aquarium and admire a labyrinthine network of aquariums that house thousands of exotic aquatic creatures, or even enjoy a scuba diving experience there. Rare gold and platinum may be praised at the Gold Souk, while dioramas that depict historic scenes and local life are displayed at the Dubai Museum, located inside the Al Fahidi Fort, an 18th-century fortress. On Palm Jumeirah, offering miles of golden sands and crystal clear waters, tourists may enjoy sunbathing and take advantage of water sports opportunities, while the desert areas of Dubai provide a spot for safari exploration.

Groupon’s Guide to Sri Lanka

Described as one of the most beautiful islands of its size in the world, hovering just above the Equator and amid the waters of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is well known for its tropical forests, beaches and rich cultural heritage.

Once on the island, travellers may visit the famous Yala National Park, the most visited and the second largest national park in the country, boasting an array of wild animals and aquatic birds. With over 3000 years of history and many ancient cities including Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Digamadulla, Sri Lanka is a perfect place for history enthusiasts. Negombo, one of the country’s major cities, is located on the west coast of the island and is famous for its sandy beaches and historical landmarks. Attractions such as the Angurukaramulla Temple, a six-metre-long reclining Buddha temple, and the Christian St. Mary’s Church await to be explored, while shopping enthusiasts may buy traditional products and souvenirs at one of the many local markets and shops.
