25 things to do in Dubai. Leisure and entertainment in Dubai for every taste

Dubai is a major city in the United Arab Emirates, which is a modern world-class tourist destination, with incredible contrasts and combinations.

To fully enjoy Dubai and "breathe in" all its facets, you should not stop at beach holidays and shopping, which are undoubtedly good in Dubai, but it is better to push the boundaries of rest and absorb all the charms of this beautiful emirate.

The article presents ideas of what to do in Dubai in addition to beaches and shopping, including with children, in order to fully immerse yourself in the atmosphere and get to know Dubai more deeply, as well as travel outside the city by sea, by land and even by air.

Take boat trips and cruises

In (from) Dubai, you can take boat trips and cruises along the Persian Gulf, the Dubai Marina Channel and the Khor-Dubai arm of the Gulf.

In Dubai, both group and individual boat trips on yachts, speedboats, pleasure boats and traditional Arab dhow boats are offered for these purposes.

There are walks with music, dinner and shows, and calmer relaxing boat trips.

You can also go out into the sea waters and go snorkeling, diving or deep-sea fishing.

Conquer the Arabian Desert

One of the most visited attractions from Dubai are desert safaris, where you can conquer the sands and see the lakes, the most visited nearby to Dubai of which are: Moon Lake in the shape of a crescent and Love Lake in the shape of two hearts.

You can arrange a desert safari and visit lakes by off-road vehicles or with jeep safari and buggy safari excursions. There is also an extreme safari for the bravest.

Safari excursions can include Arabic-style lunches and dinners, barbecues, hookahs, camel rides accompanied by a Bedouin, horseback riding, quad biking, sandboarding, visiting a Bedouin village with a show program with fire and dancing, photo shoots in national clothes.

In addition to the desert from Dubai, you can travel independently or with excursions to the Emirates, for example, visit Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, Ras al Khaimah, the oasis city of Al Ain, the oasis of Livu, the mountain resort of Hatta, as well as go to the Indian Ocean.

You can make independent trips by rented cars, taxis or public transport.

Go up in a hot air balloon

One of the pleasant and memorable activities can be a hot air balloon flight over the Arabian Desert, while there will be an opportunity to meet the dawn and admire the desert landscape from an unusual angle.

You can make a balloon ascent with excursions, which also include a transfer to the desert and back, breakfast.

Take off by helicopter

You can admire Dubai from a height by taking a helicopter flight over Dubai.

These excursions are good because, unlike walking among the skyscrapers of Dubai and climbing to the observation decks, from where it is quite difficult to understand what the real scope of this stunning city is, having flown by helicopter, it is possible to see Dubai from numerous angles.

During the flight, man-made islands, skyscrapers, the desert and the sea surface are clearly visible.

Slide over the channel on a zipline

There is a zipline directly in the city of Dubai, which is located in the Dubai Marina. This is the "xLine Dubai Marina" zipline, which has a length of 1 kilometer and is positioned as the "longest urban zipline".

The zipline connects the 44th floor of one of the Dubai Marina towers (the 170-meter Amwaj Tower in Jumeirah Beach Residence) on the one hand, with the Dubai Marina Mall on the other.

The flight passes over the waters of the channel, while developing a speed of up to 80 kilometers per hour.

What can be exciting…

A quieter road trip, but also with a breeze, through luxurious Dubai can be made in a exclusive convertible.
