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 in the area. For a business or holiday trip to go well, some amount of planning is required to ensure you make the most of your time away. There are many culinary delights, architectural landmarks, and culturally significant locations that would enhance or highlight any trip to Dubai and this post is a guide on the best things to do and see there.

Whether you are visiting and staying in Dubai for a week or longer, there are some things that can not be left unseen or undone in this place where everything is described in superlatives. To that end, see below for the ultimate guide for a week’s stay in Dubai that’s suitable whether you’re visiting for business or leisure:

The Ultimate Guide to Visiting Dubai: Burj Khalifa

Depending on where you will be based during your stay in Dubai, there are a number of sights and activities you can start off with during your stay. Your first day can 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 features an exhibit about the Khalifa’s history and the world’s fastest lift to take you to the top.

Adventure in Dubai

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

With a week’s worth of time to spend in Dubai, you’ll find that there is more to do and see in the Emirate than there is time. Other must-do activities include a day out on a desert safari, as you explore the sand dunes via a 4×4 vehicle and visit authentic Bedouin camp sites for a taste of the local cuisine. Another of your days can be allocated to spending time in Dubai’s Public parks. The Arab Emirate boasts some of the best parks around offering tranquil, clean, and evergreen settings.

For those interested in finding out more about Islam, a day spent at the Sheik Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding will make for an amazing cross-cultural experience. Rounding off the week, why not make time for a spot of fine dining in one of the area’s luxury restaurants for a spot of fine dining with exquisite seaside views?

There are many more attractions in Dubai, but with only a week to see it all, some may have to await your next visit!
