Dubai is one of the most exciting and amazing cities to be in. State-of-the-art buildings, traditional streets, man-made wonders, they are all awaiting to bewilder any visitor’s eyes and senses. Here are top 10 things to do in Dubai while being in this great Emirate of the UAE.
1. Rent a Yacht in Dubai
One of the top things to do in Dubai is renting a yacht through our yacht charter in Dubai. Exceptionally endowed with the latest technologies and amenities, the yachts in our fleet will give you the chance to get to know the Dubai Marina and coastline while on the water.
Be it for a couple of hours, an entire day or longer, when you rent a yacht in Dubai you can float among the most spectacular attractions of the area, surrounded by the calm, blue waters of the Arabian Gulf.
2. Visit the Dubai Mall
Near Burj Khalifa, you will be able to visit and discover the amazing Dubai Mall. Here, you can spend days in a row and still have more to discover.
The Mall hosts more than 1,200 shops and 150 restaurants, an indoor theme park, a great indoor waterfall, an ice rink, a rhythmic outdoor fountain and the spacious Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.
3. Cruising on the Dubai Creek
After seeing the modern side of the city, you will be astonished by the simplicity of the Dubai Creek. You can rent a dhow to embark on a wonderful trip which will take you through the sights which blend marvelously the city’s sophistication with the ancient time simplicity.
4. Hanging out at the Walk in Dubai
Known by locals as JBR, the Jumeirah Beach Walk is the largest single-phase residential building in the world.
In front of the JBR, there is a beautiful promenade where you can find plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops, being the perfect location to just relax and people-watch.
5. Visit Palm Jumeirah
While you rent a yacht in Dubai with us, you can visit the Palm Jumeirah, one of the biggest artificial islands in the entire world.
Here, there is a wide variety of high-end hotels, as well as the iconic Atlantis, the Palm. A man-made island shaped like a palm tree – only in Dubai!
6. Safari in the desert
A desert safari will give you a taste of how it is to live like a Bedouin, from an ancient time. Usually, in such an adventure you can enjoy a 4x4 drive to an original Bedouin campsite where you can try the shisha tobacco and delight yourself with a traditional shawarma.
Sometimes, you can even enjoy falcon-handling and belly-dancing entertainment, depending on the options which are available with each company.
The weekends begin on Thursday in Dubai and there are many restaurants which offer all-you-can-eat-and-drink brunches during Friday lunchtime.
Now it would be a great time to try establishments like Al Qasr Hotel or Bubblicious at Westin Hotel.
8. Watersports on the Kite Beach in Dubai
Another top thing to do in Dubai is practicing different water sports on the Kite Beach. There are many things to do here outside of the water, as well!
There are many open-air cafes where you can watch the bikers and skaters go by, or you can participate in a volleyball game.
Dubai is well known as a shopping destination, having a wide variety of malls where you can spend your time and… money.
The Dubai Outlet Mall offers discounts of up to 90% of the initial prices, or alternatively, you can shop at the BurJuman from the business district, where you can find Burberry or Louis Vuitton items.
10. Skiing in the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai
If you rent a yacht in Dubai through us and would like to do some skiing at the Mall of Emirates, you can enjoy it together with your friends.
Here you can rent the skiing gear and find plenty of lockers.
