Dubai’s Most Popular Indoor and Outdoor Tourist Activities.

Some of the Best Tourist Activities in the World are found in Dubai

Dubai, rich in culture, rich in diversity, and rich in financial resources, provides some of the best tourist activities in the world. Indoor and outdoor, the choices are abundant. Here is just a sampling of what this amazing city has to offers:

Top Outdoors Tourist Activities:

Beaches – Dubai has a number of outstanding beaches with immaculate, sandy white beaches as well as facilities that rent equipment for a vast array of water sports. Whether it’s jet skiing, kayaking, windsurfing, snorkeling, or parasailing, Dubai has a little something for everyone.

Deep Sea Fishing – Charter a yacht for a day and experience some of the best deep sea fishing the Arabian Gulf has to offer with an abundance of Kingfish, Barracuda, and Hammour ready for the taking in its clear blue waters.

Scuba Diving – For the more adventurous, Dubai has a number of local companies that are professionally certified in providing Padi diving courses. Once you become certified, experience a dive off the famous Musandam Peninsula, where coral reefs, giant turtles, and amazing sea life is waiting for you to explore.

WaterPark Adventures – Dubai has two popular waterparks, AquaVenture at Atlantis – The Palm, and Wild Wadi near Burj Al Arab. AquaVenture is notorious for its 61-metre vertical slide known as “The Leap of Faith” and Dolphin Bay where guests can enjoy a one-on-one encounter with these beautiful docile creatures. At Wild Wadi visitors can experience the Jumeirah Sceirah, the park’s speedslide that catapults riders to speeds over 80 km/hr., or try out their surfing skills on the Wipeout and Riptide FlowRiders.

Golf – Dubai is home to some of the most challenging PGA championship courses in the world. From the Emirates Golf Club, home to the Dubai Desert Classic, to Jumeirah Golf Estates, home of the Dubai World Championship, these elite courses are favorites amongst golf enthusiasts. In addition, Dubai is in the process of adding a number of new course designs, working with such golf professionals as Greg Norman, Ernie Els, and Tiger Woods.

Desert Safari – Experience the thrill of 4x4ing in the desert. Dune bashing, and sand boarding are some of Dubai’s most popular desert sports. You’ll be surprised how much fun can be had in this barren desert land.

Skydiving – For those that are looking for the ultimate adrenaline rush, join the ranks of such famous celebrities as Usher, and try a tandem jump from 20,000 ft. above the Palm Jumeirah.

Top Indoor Tourist Activities:

Shopping – With over 70 malls to choose from, Dubai is a shopper’s paradise. Dubai Mall, located in Old Town, Dubai, is the world’s largest mall, with attractions such as the Dubai Fountain and the Dubai Aquarium and its largest viewing panel in the world, guests can expect to be entertained the entire day. Mall of the Emirates, Madinat Jumeirah, Bur Juman, Festival City Mall, Dubai Marina Mall, and Ibn Batutta Mall are some of the other popular malls in the area, each having their own unique flavor.

Ski Dubai – As the world’s largest indoor ski resort, Ski Dubai offers 5 runs with varied degrees of difficulty for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy. Don’t ski? No problem. The resort also houses a popular snow park where families can enjoy some sledding and tobogganing. Ski Dubai is also home to its own “Happy Feet Colony” of penguins. Take in the “March of the Penguins,” conducted several times daily at the resort.

Burj Khalifa Observatory Deck – Experience the views from the 124th floor of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. From this height, the world takes on a whole different perspective. But we recommend you buy your tickets online in advance as it is quite a bit more expensive at the door.

Restaurants and Nightclubs – Dubai hosts an eclectic mix of night-time entertainment. With a wide selection of 5-star restaurants in almost every cuisine imaginable, and a vast array of nightclubs, including dance clubs, jazz clubs, comedy clubs, karaoke bars, and salsa dancing in Cuban restaurants, there is plenty to choose from for your evening pleasure. Theatres and live concerts are also a big part of Dubai’s nightlife.
