What To Do On A Dubai Holiday

Dubai Attractions

Experience one of the most breath-taking views available at the very top of the Burj Khalifa, officially the tallest building in the world. There are a number of observation decks, but the highest is by far the most impressive. Head back down 160 storeys and into the city to visit the Dubai Mall for the most incredible shopping trip of your life, with a wide range of high-end brand stores and luxury boutiques to choose from. Head to the centre of downtown Dubai and stop by the Dubai Fountain  which features an incredible water dancing show with jet streams bursting 150 metres into the air. Shows take place in the mid-afternoon and at sundown every 30 minutes

Dubai Food & Drink

Wanting to discover the best food and drink in Dubai?  While you’ll be able to find everything from American to Japanese inspired cuisine in Dubai, the authentic Arabian dishes are the real star of the show.
Nicknamed the pizza of Dubai, Manousheh is thought to be one of the best street style foods in the city. This warm flatbread is filled with a number of traditional toppings such as salty cheese, fresh zaatar herbs and different meats or vegetables. Make sure you also sample the authentic falafel and hummus, as the chefs of Dubai have perfected both of these chickpea-based treats. During your stay, you can also enjoy Gahwa, traditional Arabic coffee, which is brewed in a beautiful coffee pot and served in dainty cups.

Dubai Activities

With both a vibrant city and golden desert to explore, your itinerary certainly won’t come up short on your holiday to Dubai. From family-friendly activities in Dubai, to famous weekend brunches, you’ll find a range of exciting things to do to suit your holiday needs. Experience the Arabian desert by riding through the dunes on a 4WD vehicle or choose a Dubai safari tour  that offers you the chance to ride a camel, sample a traditional Arabian dish and even camp out underneath the unbelievably bright stars. The city, on the other hand, is home to an array of theme parks, including IMG Worlds of Adventure, one of the biggest indoor entertainment facilities in the world. Whether you prefer roller coasters or chilled out lazy rivers, you’re guaranteed to have a fun day out.
