Planning a trip to Dubai is easier than you think. This first-world city welcomes millions of visitors each year and has just been named the world’s safest place to walk at night, so you’ll have next to no worries when you’re here. This epic epicentre of the Middle East has something for everyone, from natural environments to iconic sights and thrills to chills for all ages.
Epic Activities in Dubai
We should start by saying that there is a whole lot to do and see in Dubai. So much so, that it probably isn’t possible to get through them all. That’s why we recommend creating your very own bucket list. Here are our top picks:
The Dubai Mall
You’ll want to pay a visit to this Dubai icon and world-famous shopping destination. There’s lots to see – and buy – here, with many entertainment options available too.
The Dubai Fountain
Catch the dancing fountain show at the Dubai Fountain. It’s a spectacular sight to behold, accompanied by music and laser lights.
Dubai is home to gold, perfume, and spice souks. You’ll find great deals here, and get a taste of what historical Emirati trading was like.
Are you brave enough to head to the observation deck of the world’s tallest building? Here, you’ll see spectacular sights of the city.
Get your cameras ready for epic snapshots at the Dubai Frame. It is the world’s largest picture frame – you can even get a lift to the top for aerial views.
For a ride that takes you around the world’s biggest observation wheel, visit Dubai’s newest epic attraction, Ain Dubai. You’ll go round in a glass cabin with uninterrupted panoramic views to see the city from a whole new perspective.
Theme Parks and Fun Havens
Dubai is home to many theme parks and watermarks to get your heart racing, whether you visit the Cartoon Network zone at IMG Worlds, or Legoland at Dubai Parks and Resorts.
There are many activities in the Arabian desert, from dune bashing to hot air ballooning and camping under a blanket of stars.
Lounging at the Beach
The hot days in Dubai call for days spent by the beach. There are many to choose from, whether you’re in the mood to take a dip in the waters, play on the beach, or sip drinks from your very own private cabana.
Visit the Palm Jumeirah
Palm Jumeirah is an iconic destination in Dubai. You can explore it by boat or from above in a helicopter ride to see its full glory. They have also recently launched Palm Fountains which has been crowned the title winner of the world’s biggest fountain show to date!
Planning a Trip to Dubai
With so much to love about Dubai, you’ll be happy to know that planning a trip and finding your way around is super easy. English is widely spoken in this smart city, which means their technology, infrastructure, and connectivity are world-class. Getting around via the affordable, extensive and speedy metro lines can get you here, there and everywhere you need to be.
Dubai is home to many expats and is often referred to as a cosmopolitan melting pot. You’ll be able to feast on flavours from all around the world. It’s also pretty hot on this side of the world, but Dubai is fully equipped to manage this with aircons and refreshing activities to keep you cool. There are also few rainy days, so prepare for sunshine and smiles all round.
Now that you know what to do, how to get around and what to expect, there’s one more important aspect of planning your trip: where to stay. There are plenty of accommodation options, but one hotel brand springs to mind: Rove. There are 9 Rove hotels situated throughout the city, giving you numerous options when it comes to finding a neighbourhood to call home.
