Things to Do in Dubai

Dubai prides itself on its opulence, which is evident everywhere you go. Begin your adventures with a trip to the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. From the observation deck, hundreds of stories up, you can spot all the top Dubai tourist attractions or watch a stunning sunset. Once you’re back at street level, make your way to the Wild Wadi Water Park and sail down elaborate slides like a kid at heart. Even though Dubai is a warm-climate destination, you can even go downhill skiing in the city. A massive indoor ski complex lets you careen down packed powder as if you’re in the Alps.

Some of the best places to visit in Dubai are located away from the buzzing downtown area. Head out to the desert and you can zip across sand dunes in a buggy or take a once-in-a-lifetime camel ride. Conclude your day in the desert with a magical dinner under the stars. While Dubai is known for modern attractions and oversized hotels, you can also seek out culture here. Visit the Grand Mosque and admire its architecture, or make your way to the Saeed Al Maktoum House and learn about this historic building that was once home to the ruler of Dubai.

Book your Dubai holiday on today, and soon you’ll be landing in the City of Gold with a smile on your face. You can play a round of 18 holes at the Dubai Creek golf course and make some finned friends at the Dubai Dolphinarium. No matter your travel speed, you and your group will never run out of things to do. Booking on is easy, and you can add airfares and a hotel in just a few minutes.
