Things to do in Dubai

Why Visit Dubai

Dubai has had an amazing transition in the past 30 years becoming a world class tourist destination, with a host of breath taking attractions, events and hotels.

Tourists are spoilt for choice with a great mix of traditional and modern tourist attractions.

The Dubai climate, especially from October through to May is stunning, and great for outdoor fun.

Traditional things to do in Dubai

Dubai has a host of attractions for all ages and tastes, with both traditional and modern attractions on offer.

Those looking for traditional United Arab Emirates attractions will enjoy visiting the traditional souks, where you can take in the real Middle East, and haggle for spices, gold, clothes, etc. And while in the old town all visitors should take a boat trip across the Dubai Creek on a traditional Abra. These low costs taxi boats ferry people over the creek all day long.

Other traditional things to do in Dubai include trips out into the Desert for 4x4 fun, camel rides, camping in Bedouin tents, or maybe cruise the Creek in style on a Dhow creek and dinner cruise.

Latest things to do in Dubai

For those wanting to experience the 'new Dubai' (by which we mean attractions and activities added in the past 15 years or so) there is a great choice of amazing, and world record setting attractions.

On the hotter days of the year you can go skiing, on the real snow slopes at Ski Dubai within the Mall of the Emirates, or visit the Ice Bar.

Also great fun in the Dubai heat are the waterparks. The original and great fun Wild Wadi, near the amazing Burj Al Arab hotel. And the more recently opened Aquaventure Water Park, which is located on the equally amazing Palm Island.

Take in the amazing views over Dubai from the 'At the Top' viewing platform within the world's tallest building, the Burj Kahlifa. Enjoy dining in Atmosphere, the world's highest restaurant. Or take in the Dubai skyline from several other great high altitude restaurants like Vu's, the Skyview Bar in the Burj Al Arab or at Uptown Bar at the top of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

Or get active and try jet boating, hot air ballooning, horse riding, jet skiing, scuba diving, dune boarding, dune buggying, fishing, etc.

There are loads of great things to do in Dubai!

Shopping in Dubai

Dubai is famous for its shopping with a mix of new modern shopping malls and the traditional souks.

Since 1996, Dubai has hosted the Dubai Shopping Festival which takes place every year from Mid January until the end of February. Your shopping options include the Mall of the Emirates, Wafi City, Marcato Shopping Mall, Burjuman Centre, Dubai Mall, Beira City and Deira City Centre to name just a few!

For the more traditional Dubai's main souks can be found in Deira and Bur Dubai, either side of Dubai Creek. Enjoy the Gold Souks, Fish Souks, Spice Souks and Textile souks. The more modern souks include Khan Murjan, Meena Bazaar, Souk Al Bahar, Naif Souk and Souk Madinat Jumeirah.

Great place to visit - lots of wow. I have had the pleasure of working there a few times and being there on family holidays a few times more. Its a few years back, and I guess its a sign of Dubai that most the things I did now have new rivals. Wild Wadi - great fun - now you also have Atlantis Views Bar on the 51st floor of the Emirates towers - The Burj Dubai will be along soon with a higher bar I guess! Taking the abres (small boats) across the creek - great value for money and good to see the hussle and bussle of old Dubai.
