Dubai’s famed playground-like qualities are what makes it a trending destination, and with this in mind, here we have listed out the seven unique experiences you can only find in Dubai. Apart from just luxury, lively nightlife and unusual ultra-modern experiences to suit every kind of taste.
Make music under the moonlight in the desert with Dubai Drums, by simply combining rhythmic tribal drumming with a relaxed family-friendly environment so everyone can get involved in it. For the cynics among you; it’s been proven that playing music in a group helps to releases endorphins and is an excellent example of an ancient activity where we can enjoy today.
If you really scare about heights, then it will be good if you simply stay away from the Burj Khalifa. Otherwise, board the 65-metre-long travellator that shows you the history of Dubai before ending up on the 124th floor to witness the skyline from this awesome inspiring height. To reach the very top, all you will need to book a Sky Experience which takes you to the highest outdoor observatory in the world, that is right up on the 148th floor, which includes different sort of interactive experiences of the surrounding areas of the Emirate.
Have you ever look around your flat and think ‘this is nice, but it would be better if everything were gold?’ Well someone in Dubai has heard that “Early bird…” proverb and the Gold Souk is the place to buy everything which is related to gold, diamond and jewelry based. Even if you’re not a flashy person, it’s worth going and having a haggle with some of the local goldsmith traders. The market for the same open every day from 10am-10pm except Friday when it opens at 4 pm.
No need to grab a boat and head out to the ocean, the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo has created a Shark Encounter experience which is as of now available right in the city. Safely enclosed in a diving cage, where the visitors can easily witness sharks being fed just inches away from the frenzy. This 30-minute experience also includes a tour of the shark facilities, with the feeding of shark babies and how the Aquarium breeds its sharks as well. This place is not for the faint or light hearted people.
Feeling a bit toasty? In the Mall of the Emirates, which is one of the largest malls in Dubai, lies Ski Dubai. This winter wonderland was created for all the family to enjoy the pleasures of skiing without being giving the hefty price tag and extreme organizing of booking a skiing holiday. To have a skiing in Dubai, you can also book a visit to meet one of the Snow Penguins that are let out of their enclosure a few times a day. This is the amazing place to visit with the family!
Wait! First, keep your coats on after skiing and visit the Middle East’s first sub-zero lounge bar, Chill Out Dubai. With the help of maintaining a temperature of an amazing -6°C you might want to order a hot chocolate rather than a refreshing cocktail but there’s no doubt this is a must-see visit for all travelers.
Yes, yes, we know that Abu Dhabi is a totally different city, but it’s only 90 minutes away by car. And you will want to drive there to warm up because in Abu Dhabi, only one speed counts, and that is so much fast. If you have been in UAE for a few days, you may have even noticed the Maseratis speeding past you in the city streets. So join the other petrol-heads at Yas Marina, which is one of the gorgeously designed circuit that hosts the country’s inaugural Grand Prix. It does not matter if you are not in the town when the races are happening, then why not take out an F1 vehicle for a single-seater experience.
