Tired of the beach? Then why not try these activities?

  • Explore locations featured in this Trip List: Dubai
  • Category: Best of
  • 1. Wild Wadi Water Park
    Wild Wadi Water Park, Dubai, Emirate of Dubai

    Quite possibly the best water park in the world!

  • 2. Wadi Bashing (driving in the dunes)

    A MUST DO activity when visiting Dubai.
    Wadi Bashing is 'off-roading' in the desert. The Guys that drive the 4x4s are something else, it's like a rollercoaster ride that is being driven by someone!
    NOT FOR THOSE WITH A BAD BACK!

  • 3. Big Bus Company Tour

    You'll be suprised at just how good the bus tour is. Worth a day of your holiday thats for sure. Be sure to sit on the top deck!

  • 4. Mall of the Emirates
    Mall of the Emirates, Dubai, Emirate of Dubai

    The prices are not that much cheaper than the UK but the shopping 'experience' is quite unique. Wear comfortable shoes..it is a BIG place!

  • 5. Gold Souk
    Gold Souk, Dubai, Emirate of Dubai

    The gold is only a bragin if you can haggle. Look to pay less than half the proposed price by he shop keeper. You will have to work hard and do not be scared to walk away as the are many many shops and someone will do the deal you are looking for. But be warned, while in the Gold Souk you WIL be approached many times by people offering fake...everything!

  • 6. Dhow Cruise on Dubai Creek

    Book an evening cruise with a buffet dinner included. Very relaxing although sometimes the entertainment can be slighty dodgy. We had the worlds worst magician. Hillariously bad! However, I have heard that the cruises have improved a huge amount recently.

  • 7. Le Villa at Sofitel Hotel, Dubai

    We have eaten at some very good resturants but this hidden gem is one of the best. Anything they can cook at your table, will be!
    try the Ceasar Salad, possibly the best I've ever had!

  • 8. Mina A' Salam at Madinat Jumeirah
    Mina A' Salam at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, Emirate of Dubai
    CHECK RATES!
    Avg price: $806

    Looking for the best hotel in Dubai well this is the place. We have stayed twice and both times our expectations have been exceeded. The beach is perfect!
