There’s nothing more exciting than booking a holiday and discount flights to Dubai. What an absolute thrill ride of an adventure! When it comes to destinations, they don’t come much better than Dubai and the country is generally speaking at or very near the top of people’s bucket lists of places to go… and once you’re there, you certainly won’t find it hard to see why.
But what should you do once you touchdown in the region? If you’re stuck for ideas, here are just a couple of activities you should definitely include in your itineraries once you reach Dubai.
If you want to see some of the old country and want to escape the city for a bit, you absolutely have to hire a boat ride down Dubai Creek. You can catch an old roofed boat from Bur Dubai Abra Station and head out at sunset across the creek, just as the evening prayers start ringing out from the local mosques. What could be better?
Visit the Burj Khalifa
You can’t leave without at least checking out the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. Make sure you go to the observation decks on the 124th and 148th floors, as well as the restaurant and bar found on the 122nd. But – make sure you book tickets at least a month in advance to avoid disappointment.
This is a really interesting interpretation of the old Arab villages and certainly worth a visit before going home again. Go at night when the gardens are beautifully lit up and you can see the Burj Al Arab in the background.
Feras Aldiyafa Sweets
If you’re anywhere near the Mall of the Emirates, you need to pop into this wonderful bakery to try out some seriously delicious sweet meats. They do savouries as well but it’s the desserts that will really blow your mind.
For some sun-worshipping, Jumeirah Beach is a great choice. It’s fun and lively so boredom isn’t an option, and there are lots of picnic and barbecue areas, as well as a children’s playground. The waters are calm here as well so if you want to do some water sports you can with the greatest of ease. Just remember to take lots of water with you, as well as plenty of sun cream, as you’ll certainly fry without!
