Every country, city, and island has those tourist destinations that no tourist should miss. Without going to those places you won’t gather the essence of the place and understand what it is all about.
Similarly, Dubai, one of the most modern cities in the world built on desert has certain places and experiences that travelers would want to miss out on.
Here is a list of activities that you are bound to enjoy aside from the traditional Dubai city Tour.
1. Desert Safari Tours
You surely must have cruised your car on the cemented roads but in desert safari, you get to experience sitting in a car that cruises in the sands.
You set out in the morning and reach a traditional desert camp in the desert by evening time. If you enjoy the fast and swinging car you are sure to enjoy this drive. Then you will reach a traditional desert camp where you will get dinner and watch a belly dance (which might not be PG-13). For souvenirs, you will be offered some traditional dessert ornaments. The best desert safari will last a full day but the memories you make there will last a lifetime.
2. Visit the Burj Khalifa
This is one of the main attractions of Dubai. After all, it is the tallest building in the world comprising of 160 floors with a height of 828 meters. You can even visit the 148th floor of the building and enjoy the view whilst you sip on a cup of coffee. I mean who doesn’t like to brag they have coffee while sitting in between the clouds!
3. A trip to Dhow Cruise in Marina and Jumeirah Beach
Now, these are all the fancy places in Dubai, if you want to understand the soul of the city then you should head over to Marina to enjoy Dhow cruise in Marina. It is a 2 hour trip with delicious dinner, here you will be able to grasp what the city is in its real life.
Just because the city is built on the desert it does not mean it has no water around. Dubai is an island and it has some amazing beaches and Jumeirah is the best one.
