Ultimate Guide: What to Do in Dubai Published on .

Camels walking through the Dubai desert

Dubai has grown to be one of the world’s top destinations and whether you are visiting the Arab Emirate for business or pleasure, there is a lot to do and see! There are culinary delights, beautifully warm waters, shopping to satisfy the most demanding of shoppers and awe-inspiring architectural landmarks; not to mention the dazzling desert surrounding the stunning metropolis.

Whether you are visiting and staying in Dubai for a week or longer, there are some must see things which should be at the top of everyone’s list.

Burj Khalifa

Your first day could be spent in the heart of the capital and there is no better place to start than the Burj Khalifa. Whether you use cheap business class flights to Dubai or a more standard option, the Burj Khalifa is a must-visit attraction. The building is the tallest in the world and reaches a staggering 163 floors high. To put this in context, the Empire State Building is just 103 floors! The building features an exhibit about the Khalifa’s history and the world’s fastest lift to take you to the top.

Although not for the faint hearted or those who dislike heights, those who brave the ascent are rewarded with amazing panoramic views of Dubai’s surroundings.

Ski Dubai and Mall of the Emirates

Be sure to reserve one of your days for a visit to Ski Dubai. Where else are you able to ski in the middle of a blistering-hot desert? There is no need to bring along your ski equipment as everything you need can be hired at the centre which is located in the Mall of the Emirates by the marina. Ski Dubai even features a café and bar along the ski slope, meaning there is enough to do here to fill up a whole day.

In addition to the Mall of the Emirates, Dubai also has an eclectic mix of shopping experiences to which some of your time must be dedicated. From the indigenous souks, markets, and street food stalls to high-end malls housing the world’s biggest brands, you can literally shop till you drop in Dubai.

More Dubai Activities and Sightseeing
