Essential Attractions To Try During Your Time In Dubai

by Gavin Darvell

Hello Dubai, the desert city, a modern metropolis where futuristic buildings have risen beyond limits to touch the cloudless blue sky. Where Middle Eastern cultures collide with Western influences to create a unique, exciting experience. A place with sun-kissed beaches and swaying palm trees welcome daily sun worshippers — a city of stylish hotels and thrill-seeking attractions looking to entice you in. 

Dubai is a hearty mix of the past, the present and the future. Dubai is also a destination that offers so much more than the mega shopping malls. So drop the shops for a bit and come and catch the excitement during your time in Dubai.

Scream and laugh out loud at the thrills, culture and culinary delights packaged into a Dubai must-do! That best sums up a desert safari. There is no more rewarding an experience than zooming across the sandy floor in 4×4’s! Ride the dunes and then listen to the tunes, a dance and some food. It’s what you can expect when you head out of the desert city. It’s these kinds of experiences that will deliver lasting memories.



There’s something special about seeing a metropolis like Dubai at night. All sparkly lights, dazzling in the twilight. And where better to capture this moment? Out at sea looking back at the city. A dinner cruise or traditional dhow tour will give you a different perspective of the surroundings. Dine out in luxury or settle back and enjoy the gently rocking boat as it takes you around offshore. Romantic and engrossing.

Up and up it goes! Just stand at the bottom for a second, look up and just be awe-inspired at its height. And, oh, what a picture. Then head up the Burj Khalifa and gaze down on the scene far below. People look like ants, and the desert seems to be fighting itself off from the ever-expanding city. There is no better way to get a bird-eye view than up the world’s tallest building during your time in Dubai.


Theme parks:

Hold on tight you’re about to go into light speed! Well, that’s how it’ll feel on the world’s fastest roller coaster. For Ferrari World holds that claim, and you’ll expect thrills at the home of the prancing pony. Oh, and what about the scorching hot weather? Dubai offers up water theme parks to ‘get yourself wet while indulging in thrills!’ Sounds like fun, right? Wild Wadi Waterpark and Yas Waterworld will keep all water babies smiling from ear to ear.

It’s Dubai’s newest attraction, a 500ft high experience, a memory to be framed! The Dubai Frame is a structure that will have you purring with delight. And that’s before you’ve headed up to the observation deck at the top! With its views and glass floor, you are in for a treat. Let’s call it a new high!


Dubai is a city that needs to properly explored, of course, enjoy the delights of the malls but look beyond the shopping and you’ll find a feast of treasures, which are let’s say it, full of adventures. With so many different, exciting attractions on offer is it any wonder that Dubai is a premier Winter sun destination. Time to get planning.
