Treat Yourself to an Epic Trip to Dubai
Dubai is where the city meets sunshine as the perfect high-end holiday destination. Treating yourself is all about enjoying yourself, and this city has something for everyone. Here’s a rundown of some of the top activities and attractions you can look forward to during your visit.
Begin with the views
Begin your trip with views of the city. With so many skyscrapers marketing the skyline, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Start at the epic Burj Khalifa that holds the title of the world’s tallest building. You can also visit Ain Dubai, the world’s largest observation wheel, for panoramic views from Bluewaters Island.
Check off the bucket list items
Head from the Burj Khalifa to the iconic Dubai Mall next door. Here, you can get a taste of the city’s mall culture, with the Dubai Mall being filled with stores, restaurants, and a myriad of activities including an aquarium and ice skating rink. Situated outside on the Burj Khalifa Lake is the Dubai Fountain, featuring a mesmerising dancing fountain show with lights, fireworks, and musical synchronisations.
Head to the Arabian shores
Dubai may be a desert-based city, but there are many beaches you can visit to cool down in the waters or lounge along the shores. Visit La Mer, the beachfront neighbourhood that features a vibrant atmosphere and several restaurants along the promenade. The beach at JBR is another great option, boasting the famous Dubai skyline as a backdrop.
Live the lifestyle
Dubai is known for its luxurious lifestyle. To live it up like a local, you can head to other exclusive shopping spaces like City Walk, where you can shop at boutiques in a European-style shopping destination. Outside City Walk, you’ll see the Coca-Cola Arena that hosts a range of concerts and exhibitions, so be sure to check out what’s on ahead of your visit.
Adventures in the desert
When in the desert, you need to explore the sand dunes! Head out of the city on a day trip. Multiple experiences await visitors, from camel rides to desert safaris and 4X4 rides. If you’d like, you can spend the night at a desert camp enjoying a cup of tea as the blanket of stars covers overhead.
A cultural nod
Dubai may be a sterling example of a smart and futuristic city on the world stage, but there is a lot of cultural heritage to experience too. You can visit any one of the souks to shop for the likes of gold, textiles, spices, and perfumes. There are also historical districts that you can visit by hopping on a traditional dhow boat.
