With temperatures soaring to the high 40’s, Dubai’s beaches are of course one of their main attractions. And whether you want to lounge in luxury and top up your tan or indulge in the range of watersports offered, such as jet skiing, banana boating and scuba diving there really is something for everyone here. For a unique sea life experience, Dolphin Bay offers various packages to suit all ages and swimming abilities to meet and interact with dolphins in a sophisticated habitat in the Atlantis Hotel. Swim alongside these magical sea mammals, play games with them or even enjoy a dorsal fin tow!
Dubai is known for its luxury shopping experience, and there’s no better place to experience it than Dubai Mall. Not only is it the world’s largest shopping mall but it also has a range of exciting entertainment options. Kids will love the aquarium whilst the Olympic sized ice rink is sure to attract a few couples looking for fun date ideas. If you’re looking for a more traditional shopping experience, then head to one of the many souks. The Gold Souk is one of the cheapest places to get gold jewellery from, but be prepared to haggle! The souks are a great place to pick up traditional artisan including vibrant textiles, spices and ornaments.
As you arrive by plane, you’ll see the vast desert that surrounds this magical city, and a trip through the sand dunes can be one of the most rewarding experiences for visitors here. There are a range of options available for seeing the desert, but the most authentic has to be via camel. It can get pretty uncomfy being giggled around by a camel though, and most people will find a couple of hours of trekking suffice. Try and get a combination of 4 x 4 transport, camel riding and quad biking for the ultimate desert experience, and round it off with a BBQ lunch or dinner with your fellow guests. If a day trip simply isn’t enough, then why not extend your stay and camp out under the stars!
