8 Great Activities to Experience on Your Dubai Adventure

Have your tickets purchased?

Your bags packed?

Entertainment handy for the plane ride over?

You’re undoubtedly excited about the new personal and professional opportunities that Dubai will afford you and your family in the years to come, but you should never overlook the need for rest, relaxation and, most importantly, fun!

Thankfully, Dubai offers plenty of that. 

Whether you’re looking to take in the culture and history of the Emirate or experience an unparalleled adrenaline rush, you’ll find an activity to meet your needs!

Today, we’re going to look at eight great examples of the types of experiences that you can expect to have while in the thriving hub of the Middle East.

1: TAKE IN THE SUN AND SEA!

It might not be the first thing that springs to mind, but Dubai has a thriving marina full of activities to do and things to see! 

Whether it’s your first time in town for a visit or you’re looking for a fresh activity to change up the pace of your everyday life, a catered yacht tour is a perfect opportunity to get out of the city and enjoy the beautiful weather and sights. 

2: EXPERIENCE THE DUNES ON A CAMEL SAFARI

 If the water isn’t quite your speed, Dubai has access to some of the premier deserts in the world. 

Experience the rolling sand dunes at sunset on one of the many camel safaris to get up close and personal with an entirely different side of nature. 

3: FEEL THE RUSH OF AN ATV RIDE

If you prefer the comfort and speeds of a motorised vehicle, you can alternatively take a ride through the desert in an ATV. 

Not enough of an adrenaline rush? Some sandboarding might be the perfect pick-me-up before settling down to a classic desert camp BBQ. 

4: GO ON AN AQUAVENTURE

 

You don’t have to go outside city limits to beat the heat and do something different. Dubai boasts one of the world’s great waterparks that offers a tremendous variety of rides and activities for all ages. 

Once you’ve seen the rides, take a quick trip to the nearby private beaches to relax with a first-class view of the water. 

5: EXPERIENCE THE CUISINE

If you’re someone who prefers some fine dining, rest assured that Dubai has you covered. With 11 restaurants in the Emirate run by Michelin-approved chefs, you can experience culinary delights regardless of your favourite cuisine!

6: SEE THE SKYLINE BY HELICOPTER

Feeling cramped? Take in the fresh air and see the world from a whole new perspective with one of Dubai’s helicopter tours. 

A great way to bring some excitement to your day, a helicopter tour is the ideal choice for the tourist and resident interested in taking in the bigger picture!

7: VISIT THE CITY'S LANDMARKS

You can’t say you’ve visited Dubai until you’ve visited some of its world-famous landmarks. 

From the iconic Burj Khalifa to the Dubai Fountain, the city has some truly impressive sights that are well-worth your while to visit. 

8: GET UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH NATURE

 We already took a look at some camel tours for the nature lovers, but if that’s not enough you can always take in a morning of falconry! 

Spending some time in the company of these birds of prey is a great way to connect with the wildlife around us and give you an experience you won’t soon forget. 

 

We hope we’ve showed you today that Dubai isn’t all business! There are plenty of fun activities to do and experiences to have the next time you’re interested in taking a weekend break away from the office. 

From the sea to the sun to the sand, Dubai has everything you could be looking for.
