5 Fun Things to Do in Dubai

Dubai offers attractions for all age groups. This city in the desert prides itself on its modern amenities, international cuisine, and global appeal. Here are five fun things to do in this cosmopolitan city.

1: Hop-On Hop-Off Big Bus Tour - With the Hop-on Hop-off Big Bus Dubai Tour, you'll have an elevated view of the city from the comfort of an open-top bus as it moves through the Emirate. You'll have the opportunity to see more than 40 different points of interest on this bus tour, and you can explore every part of this country. Important destinations on this tour include The Burj Khalifa, Souk Madinat, The Palm, and Dubai Marina.

You can take three different routes: the City Tour (red), the Beach Tour (green), or the Marina Tour (blue). With your Big Bus ticket, you'll gain admittance to the "Flamingo Lagoon Discovery" trip, which gives you the chance to watch exotic flamingos in the wildlife.

2. Dhow Dinner Cruise Dubai Creek - An ideal way to start your first day in Dubai is with a wonderful journey on the Dhow dinner cruise vessels. The dinner cruise is exciting, and you can enjoy a 5-star buffet that is so tasty! On this two-hour voyage, you'll set sail along the Dubai Creek, which is a famous waterway that divides the downtown zone into two distinct banks. You'll get the chance to see top sights, including the National Bank of Dubai, the Chamber of Commerce Building, and various waterfronts.

3. Water Activities with SeaYou - SeaYou is the leading water sports equipment distributor in the Middle East. It specializes in non-motorized activities. SeaYou conducts regular classes for enthusiasts who are willing to try exhilarating adventures. Located at the Sofitel Palm Resort & Spa, they offer a broad range of watersport activities in the amazing Palm Jumeirah, a man-made archipelago that is part of the Palm Islands. By booking a water activity from SeaYou, you can fully experience the wonders of the Palm with a paddleboarding or windsurfing session or a guided kayak tour. SeaYou's instructors offer assistance to both beginners and more experienced participants.

4. Take a Desert Safari trip. You can enjoy the beautiful sunset or sunrise before reaching the campsite where you have the opportunity to ride a camel, try sandboarding and get a beautiful henna design on your hand or foot. After working up an appetite, enjoy a delicious barbecue meal and shisha (the famous Arabic water pipe) while watching a belly dancer perform around the campfire.

5. See the Sunrise from Burj Khalifa - Why do you have to go to the top of Burj Khalifa during sunrise? Because it is awe-inspiring when you are standing high on the outdoor observation deck of the world's tallest building at the break of day. With clouds swirling below and the entire city of Dubai under your feet, you will feel like an all-powerful being as you gaze at the brilliant colors of the horizon miraculously transforming from a deep, splendid purple to a magnificent, shimmering orange. Burj Khalifa is a must-visit tourist destination.
