With everything from indoor ski slopes to camel rides in the desert, Dubai is the place to be if you want to check-off all your bucket list activities at once. Wake up and take in all the smells and sights of the Spice Souq in Deira. Dubai is the place to treat yourself so steal away to the Bulgari Hotel’s spa for an indulgent hammam treatment.
Even if you’re not one for shopping, Dubai Mall is worth checking out. With everything from an aquarium to a Virtual Reality Park, you’ll never run out of things to do here. Spend your day sunning yourself at one of the city’s many beach clubs like the Instagram-able, La Mer. One of the best ways to get a taste for traditional Dubai is sampling the local cuisine on one of Frying Pan Adventures’ food tours.
The delightful afternoon tea served on the top floor of the “7-star” hotel, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, is the height of sophistication. Venture to the mini-city of Madinat Jumeirah and spend the afternoon perched on a private beach, overlooking the Arabian Gulf with a drink or shisha in hand. As the sun sets, find a position in front of The Dubai Fountain and watch as its mesmerising water show lights up the night. Can’t decide where to go for dinner? Take a stroll around the gorgeous Dubai Marina area, which is packed with delicious dining options like The Maine Oyster Bar & Grill.
