What to Do

There are a wide range of activities to enjoy in Dubai. From historic sightseeing trips, dhow cruises, safari adventures and trips to the sand dunes, to theme parks and water parks, and of course a plethora of shopping experiences. Below are a selection of excursions to give you a flavour of what is on offer.

Burj Khalifa
The Burj Khalifa has the two highest observation decks in the world, offering you magnificent views of the city and beyond. There is an open observation deck on the 124th floor, or the luxurious lounge on the 148th floor. Add to this the high speed elevator, with its floor to ceiling glass walls, and you will be able to enjoy an unobstructed 360 degree view. Quite the experience!

Glory of the Sultans
Get a taste of the life of a Sultan. Enjoy this cultural journey that will take you through Arabic majlis, winding souqs that offer a unique shopping experience followed by a live stage show including belly dances and falcon shows. Or for those who prefer a more relaxing end to the day, enjoy time in the shisha lounge. The tour ends with a sumptuous meal at the Food Bazaar.

Tales from the Past
A tailored walking tour of the Historical District of Dubai including The Heritage Village that offers a fascinating insight into the country's history while walking through the souks. The tour ends with a traditional Emirati lunch.

Alternatively, take a journey back in time to discover a history of Dubai that dates back to the Bronze Age. Your trip will take you to Bastakiya with its narrow lanes and on to the Dubai Museum, housed in Al Fahidi Fort. From here you will take a ride on an Abra (boat) taking you to the busy market area, home to the famous Gold and Spice Souks. Your last stop will be the 8th century Jumeirah Mosque.

Explore a Desert Oasis - Al Ain
Al-Ain, also known as the garden city dates back to the 4th millennium BC. It is the birthplace of the first president of the UAE. It is the greenest town in the country and one of the world's oldest permanently inhabited settlements. Enjoy a walk through the palms of the Jimi and Hili oasis and visit the Al Ain Palace Museum.

Sand Dune Adventures
Explore the desert on a dune buggy. Enjoy a thrilling ride and all the fun the desert can offer.

Alternatively, spend an evening dune bashing in a 4x4 vehicle followed by an indulgent Arabic buffet dinner and evening entertainment at a Bedouin campsite. Then spend the night under the stars in comfortable sleeping bags, waking up the following morning to enjoy a fresh and light breakfast before heading back to the city.

If you don't have time to overnight in the desert, why not just enjoy an evening there. Again, enjoy an adventure across the sand dunes in a 4x4 vehicle arriving at the Bedouin camp in time to enjoy the sunset and a lavish spread of Arabic fare. Then for the more active there is the opportunity to enjoy sand-boarding and camel riding before being entertained by belly dancers and folk dancers before heading back to the city.

Hot Air Balloon Flight with Breakfast & Falconry
Catch the sunrise from 4,000 feet in a hot air balloon! With the desert below, see the local wildlife including camels, gazelles and the Arabian Oryx in their local habitat. During your flight, enjoy the novelty of a falcon show. On landing, travel in a vintage Land Rover to a private camp to enjoy a gourmet breakfast.
