What are the top things to do in Dubai?

With a whole host of extraordinary Dubai excursions on offer, submerging yourself in the Emirati culture has never been easier. From taking a scenic balloon flight over the vast sand dunes, to exploring the reefs of the Dubaian shoreline, we’ve hand-picked the top five things to do whilst on your visit to the City of Gold.

Take flight

Soar over the vast sand dunes of the UAE, whilst taking in the contrast of a city of two halves with a desert balloon flight.

On one side, find a horizon filled with an unparalleled feat of engineering and design, whilst on the other, an infinite dusky desert landscape.


Coastline dives

Take in the coastline from an angle that goes unseen to most: underwater. Home to some of the world’s most exotic marine life and rare, untouched reefs, explore the hidden depths of Dubai’s shoreline and see its flawless beauty for yourself.

Morning safari

Exchange the bustle of the city for an exhilarating Dubai Desert safari. Drive over the dunes towards the depths of the desert where a morning of traditional camel rides and sand-boarding awaits your arrival.

Dhow dinner cruise

Soak up the sites of the moonlit skyline whilst drifting down the Dubai Creek. Enjoy a dining experience like no other as you see the city’s architectural beauty enriched by a different light - all in the tranquil setting of a traditional wooden dhow.

High tea at Burj Al Arab

See Dubai’s most sought after sights, followed by an elegant high tea at the world famous Burj Al Arab.

The spectacular Burj Kahlifa, extravagant Dubai Mall fish tank and extraordinary Palm Jumeirah are just some of the sites on offer, with high tea taking place inside one of the city’s own coastal gems.
