Written by Wasim

You have just arrived in Dubai during Holidays and have a little time to visit all the things you were planning. You will want to go shopping, try specialties, walk and see the city. If you follow our guidelines, you can see a lot; you can achieve everything and come back home with an unforgettable experience. So, here are some tips for you.

1. Visit the Dubai Creek

If you like to explore and view cultural sites, the left and right sides of Dubai Creek are an excellent choice for you. There are many buildings from the period when Dubai was not one of the most famous cities in the world. You will enjoy walking around the old, narrow streets. Visit the bazaars and visit the museum. An exhibition in the museum offers visitors an insight into desert life, traditional Arab homes, mosques, fishing, pearl extraction, and trade. It’s the best place to visit if you want to get to know the history of Dubai and see how in just a few decades Dubai has turned into a wonderland. If you’re going to get to know the real Dubai, this is the perfect place.

2. Dubai Parks & Resorts

Visit Dubai parks and resorts. There are three parks in the complex: Legoland, Motiongate and Bollywood Parks. It’s a place where both children and adults enjoy their time. A place you do not want to miss. The price of tickets for each park is not negligible, but if you stay at one of the hotels located within the park, the entrance is free. Believe us when we say this place will keep a smile on your face for a long time.

3. Fairy Tale of the Dubai Fountains

Go to Downtown Dubai – a dynamic new part of the city, which offers numerous attractions. Here we have the highest building in the world Burj Khalifa, with its platform, which provides us with a fascinating view. Many luxury hotels are lined up one after the other, together with a whole complex of artificial lakes with fountains and music games during the evenings. Every night between 6 pm and 10 pm, you can see water cannons dancing with music like in a fairy tale. You should sit down to one of the restaurants and cafes that have a good view of the fountains, rest and enjoy while you can. It is something you must experience, and you will surely remember it your whole life.

4. Palm Jumeirah

Don’t miss the Palm Jumeirah. It is part of the complex of artificial islands in the form of a palm tree. It’s a fantastic feeling to stand on a man made in the desert! You will encounter luxury villas with private beaches, the prince’s palace and at the very top of the Palm, the most famous hotel The Atlantis. You will also enjoy a beautiful view of this vibrant city.

5. Try Different Cuisines

Enjoy eating in Dubai! Believe it or not, in Dubai, you have a variety of the best world-class cuisines. If you like Japanese cuisine, in some sushi bars you can eat as much as you can for only 20 dollars a day.  Being an international and multinational center, Dubai offers you every possible kitchen, starting with Indian, across French to American. Still, believe us you will not stay hungry! Our advice is to try as many specialties as you can!

6. Be Amazed By Spectacular Fireworks

Don’t miss the fireworks. Like every single year during this holiday, you will have a chance to enjoy one of the most fantastic fireworks. Just pick the right spot and relax! Our suggestion is to take a blanket, go to some of the beaches and enjoy this spectacle.

PS: the fireworks will be there three days in a row; you can’t miss them.

7. Go Shopping

Enjoy skiing? Excellent! Dubai is an excellent place for that, as well. Yes, that is what you’ve read. Although you are surrounded by desert, in the Mall of the Emirates, there is a fantastic place with artificial snow and completely realistic mountain slopes. You can enjoy skiing, snowboarding or just playing in the snow!

9. Relax with the Unbelievable Cruise Through the City

You can enjoy the evening cruise through the city with the unique dining experience on the water. A journey on an air-conditioned glass ship is an inspirational event, as in the town itself. Guests can enjoy freshly prepared gourmet dinners, with fun, lighting, a wide selection of drinks, and exceptional services.

10. Feel the Spirit of the City at Night

Enjoy the nightlife! If you prefer jazz, you can listen to the fabulous voice of Brenna Whitaker.
