5 Best Experiences that You Cannot Miss the Boat on When Visiting Dubai

Gawk at the Burj Khalifa

The world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai is a charmer. If Dubai tourism was a pageant, then Burj Khalifa would be the showstopper.

At a height of 828m, this mammoth is a vision whether you visit during the day or at night. The 360-degree view of the city from atop the Burj Khalifa is a jaw dropping sight, which makes it one of the best places to visit in Dubai.

Our recommendation would be visiting the Burj Khalifa an hour before sunset to catch the magnificent sight of the sky turning into a rich gold, then auburn, and finally blue. Once the sun sets, descend and watch the Burj Khalifa get lit up by a thousand lights.

Go on a zip line across Dubai Marina

Dubai tourism offers a number of extraordinary experiences to its travellers. One such unique experience is zip lining through Dubai Marina. 

Imagine zooming through some of the tallest buildings in the world with a fountain below you. We are sure you are already feeling the thrill. Xline offers the world’s longest urban zip line in Dubai magnifying the excitement by several notches.

This expansive one-kilometre zip line to Dubai Marina Mall from Amwaj Tower is definitely one of the things to do in Dubai to make the most of your visit.

Experience skydiving like never before

Dubai tourism has a plethora of activities for the adventurers! From zip lining to diving, take part in all these things to do in Dubai during your next visit.

Skydiving in Dubai is an unparalleled experience. Soar at a height of 13000 feet and watch the glorious Palm Jumeirah Island sparkle below you. You will be accompanied by instructors, so there is nothing to worry about. If you are an experienced diver, then we would recommend that you leave out the tandem experience and go for a free fall instead.

Visit the deserts of Dubai

From sand-boarding and jeep safari to dune bashing, there is so much to do in the deserts of Dubai.

If you are holidaying in Dubai with your family, and are looking for some thrilling activities that you can do together, a jeep safari would be the ideal entertainment. But if this is your vacation with friends, then we recommend signing up for some dune bashing or cycling through the sands on a fat bike.

For those visiting Dubai with their lover, we would suggest a hot air balloon ride through the sky with the caramel desert below you.
