As one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, Dubai has something for everyone. But with so much to do in this city, it can be hard to decide which sights to see and attractions to visit. You could spend days exploring the ancient Souks, miles of sandy beaches or the world’s tallest building.
9 Fun Things to Do in Dubai:
Dubai is a city that is always buzzing with fun and excitement and is a great place to go to unwind and enjoy some leisurely time with friends and family.
Walk the Sand Walks:
When you’re touring the city (be at the beach or at the souk), there might be no place better to go walking along the sand than the beachfront. Do a short walk (or hop on a roller coaster) and experience the city’s largest open space as you stroll along the beach. Most people can only experience it once a day, but when you go many times, you’ll start to really fall in love with this part of the city!
Go to the Palm Jumeir:
Another fun thing to do in Dubai is visit the Palm Jumeir, a historical and traditional trading center built in 1544, when the city was centered on the Indian and Arabian seas. Explore inside the center and take in the sights of the city at night. Many of the sights are actually still open during the day, although you might be able to spot them from the comfort of your hotel room!
If your budget allows, one of the first things most expats and foreign tourists to do in Dubai is to rent a room for the night and use that room to stay in. Spend your next few nights in this bed and breakfast comfortable setting and explore the city.
Go Dune Bashing:
You can do a lot of cool stuff in Dubai. For example, you can go dune bashing, which is basically riding in a truck over the sand dunes in the desert. It’s a lot of fun and it’s a great way to get a different perspective of the city.
A few of the beautiful buildings in Dubai you can explore include the Burj Al Arab hotel, the Burj Khalifa skyscraper, and the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah Beach Resorts. You can tour these and other iconic buildings and sites.
Even if you don’t want to dine at a Western-style hotel, you can get your culinary fix in Dubai. There are loads of Indian, Chinese, Middle Eastern, and Western-style restaurants and cafes to choose from. Try both traditional and Western cuisine, and finally, treat your body to a treat at one of the many Wellness Hotels.
Watch the Dubai Fountains:
A tourist in Dubai once told me that the best way to experience Dubai is to go to the Dubai Fountains at night with a date. The fountains are in the center of the city, surrounded by skyscrapers, which is a pretty cool sight. The fountains are choreographed to music and are synchronized with lights in the buildings around them. It’s a really fun experience, and it makes the fountains something you can look forward to every night at the same time.
Lion Dance Observe Dubai:
Never done a lion dance live? It’s like a mini dance-off. Or a lion hunt. Both are ridiculously cool, and pretty much everyone who has ever done one of these events gets the chance to do one in Dubai. There are four different circuses in the city which make for some amazing photo opportunities, which you should take plenty of.
Visit Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world
The Burj Khalifa, located in Dubai, is the tallest building in the world. It has 160 stories and is about 828 meters tall. The building was designed by Adrian Smith, who is also responsible for designing the tallest buildings in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. The total construction cost was $1.3 billion and took four years to complete.
THE DOLPHIN HOTEL:
Opened in 2009, the Dolphin Hotel is the newest addition to the five star Riu Maruzi Hotel & Spa. The Dolphin is located on the Beach Town Pier. Offering all-inclusive rates, this hotel has been described as the “monyption of the 21st Century” due to its quantum leap in design. Its boutique rooms take you above the water, allowing you to gaze upon the gorgeous Dubai beaches below. These marinas are teeming with activity and the view from one of the decks is truly breathtaking. Plus, the resort features a restaurant, spa, bar and coffee shop.
The Desert Safari in Dubai is another luxury hotel on the Beach Town Pier. With separate05 kitchens and vineyards, this hotel is an unearthly experience. The 15,000 square feet of wineries offer visitors the chance to dine among the rarest grapes on the planet.
