Things to do in Dubai

Dubai is a city of skyscrapers, renowned for its grandeur luxury and breathtaking architecture. Tradition meets modern amenities in this part of the world and it's possible for tourists to enjoy the Arab culture while indulging in state of the art hotels and facilities.

Here are just a handful of many things you can do in Dubai:

  • Spoil your inner foodie by indulging in a meal cooked by a world class chef in one of Dubai’s many incredible restaurants. If you need a little help deciding which restaurant you should visit on holiday to Dubai, try our interactive Dubai restaurant map. There is no shortage of options with cuisine from all around the world only ever a short journey from your hotel.
  • Unleash your adrenalin junkie and cool off at one of the many waterparks Dubai has to offer. Aquaventure and Wild Wadi have something for even the more daredevil thrill seekers. Throw yourself down a fast paced water slide to get the adrenalin pumping. Alternatively, if you prefer your breaks a little more laid back, you'll find lazy rivers and plenty of places to soak up the sun too.
  • Get jaw dropping photos of that Dubai skyline. Whether by day or night, the Dubai skyline is incredibly photogenic! Completely breath taking and iconic in its own right, your Dubai memory book isn’t complete without a few photos of that iconic scene.
  • Shop till you drop at the Dubai Mall, the largest shopping centre in the world. Whether it’s designer clothes for yourself, souvenirs for the family back home or electronics, you’ll struggle to come up with something you can’t buy here. And if you need a break from all that retail therapy, there are bars, cafes and restaurants-a-plenty here too.
  • A fast paced experience in the desert! There’s no feeling like bouncing over the sand dunes of Dubai’s desert in a desert safari. But if you prefer your transport a little slower paced, you could ride a camel in the desert instead!
  • Peruse the traditional wares at Dubai’s famous gold souks. These markets offer the bargain hunters a chance to put their finest haggling skills to the test.
  • Sky dive over the palm. Not for the faint of heart! But if you fancy yourself as a bit of daredevil and you want a view of the Palm like no other, then why not give it a go?
  • If you simply can’t wait for your holiday to Dubai and you want to experience it now, we’ve got a little taster for you! Go and experience a Day in Dubai in our interactive immersive experience.

Packing tips

The emirate of Dubai has quickly transformed itself from a vast desert to a tourist playground. A sprawling metropolis, it is a unique destination and one that takes a lot of thought when it comes to packing.

Firstly, get your sunscreen and hat in the suitcase because the sun is scorching in Dubai and it doesn’t take much to burn. Similarly, the clear, blue skies mean that sunglasses are essential for protecting your eyes from the glare.

With the sticky weather outside, it is important to remember that the malls are often air-conditioned to the point where a light jacket may be needed. Try to be modest, as is the culture there, when dressing with skirts and shorts below the knee and elbow-length sleeves on shirts. Make sure that you get breathable fabrics; loose cottons and linens are ideal.

On your feet, go for flip flops and sandals but keep in mind that trips like sandboarding, desert safaris and camel rides will need comfortable, closed footwear. In the evening, natives will be dressed up so make sure you have smart clothing for going out to bars and restaurants; especially if you’re hitting the clubs.

Weather in Dubai

Found in the Northern desert belt, Dubai has intensely hot and humid summers with warm winters to boot. The months of June through September all have average highs around 40ºC with lows of little less than 30ºC in the evenings. This, combined with the high humidity, can make the emirate sticky and uncomfortable at times.

January is the coldest month and that still has an average high of 24ºC with a low of just 14ºC. During the winter months, between December and March, Dubai can get thunderstorms and the odd shower with the wettest month of February averaging 35 millimeters of rain.

The tropical desert climate means that whenever you go you can expect Dubai to be warm and sunny but it does fluctuate a little.

Essential Information

  • Capital-Dubai is the most populous emirate in the United Arab Emirates while Abu Dhabi is the official capital.
  • Currency-The whole of the UAE use the United Arab Emirates Dirham.
  • Languages-Dubai, and the rest of the United Arab Emirates, have Arabic as their official language.
  • Time Zone- GMT +4 hours.
