If you are heading to Dubai, put down your guidebook and check out these top five things to do in the city;
1. Underwater restaurant
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to eat your spaghetti bolognese surrounded by spectacular sea-life? Well, now you can, thanks to the underwater Al Mahara restaurant in Dubai. Situated around a giant glass aquarium, the restaurant truly has a ‘submerged’ atmosphere. Name as one of the world’s top 50 restaurants, the underwater dining experience is not one to be missed.
2. Luxury hotels
Dubai is home to the world’s only seven-star hotel which is built on a man-made island surrounded by the Arabian Gulf. Redefining luxury, the lavish building is the fourth tallest hotel in the world.
3. Dubai creek
An extremely popular trip for travellers and holidaymakers is the Dubai creek. The creek can be crossed by water taxi or, alternatively, you could hire your own boat. The creek is situated close to the Al Garhoud Bridge and Al Maktoum Bridge with a pristine golf course nestled in between.
4. Wild Wadi water park
Cool off from the Arabian sun by visiting the Wild Wadi water park. Perfect for families with young children, the water park makes for a great day trip. Escape from the hustle and bustle of the crowded city by spending a day by the pool and riding the waves. The Wild Wadi water park, which is situated in front of the stunning Burj Al Arab, offers 30 rides & attractions for all the family.
Shopping in Dubai is an ‘absolute must’ and whilst it has been argued that the actual shops themselves are not that different from the UK, the experience is said to be ‘intriguing’. According to Time Magazine, Dubai shopping centres are displayed on a grand scale with the Mall of Emirates hosting an indoor ski slope with real snow!
Dubai offers a jewellery box of treats for budding travellers and holidaymakers. Comprehensive travel insurance should possibly be considered for a transatlantic trip.Back to top
