Sightseeing and guided tour ideas
Shopping is a huge pastime in Dubai, and there's even a yearly festival dedicated to it (04 Jan-04 Feb 06).
Many of the enormous air-conditioned shopping complexes are open till midnight on various days, so finding the time to visit Dubai's 45 shopping malls may not be such a problem. Don't forget your credit cards because there are some fantastic tax-free bargains available.
In the famous souks (marketplaces) you'll find everything from beautiful jewellery to fantastic local spices to exquisite silks. In the world's largest gold souk there are some great bargains to be had, so practice your bartering skills. There are so many different shopping opportunities that a guided tour will be useful to ensure you make the most of your time.
Dubai has excellent golf courses, and no expense has been spared in their design.
Take a tour of the city to discover Dubai's landmarks. Cruise Dubai creek in a traditional wooden dhow, either in the glorious sunshine or by cool moonlight. Out of town in the desert, hit the sand dunes on a 4-wheel drive adventure, while journeying to a Bedouin-style camp where you'll enjoy a traditional Arab feast with entertainment from a belly dancer.
Dubai Creek cruise
This is an exciting evening tour in Dubai, on board a beautifully decorated traditional Dhow.
As the cruise sails along the Dubai creek you will see the major Dubai landmarks. The past and present architecture of the area is seen in its full glory, including the National Bank of Dubai, Dubai Chamber of Commerce, Sheikh Saeed’s house, and the Heritage Village.
Dubai is a great place for kids. Many hotels have well organised kids' clubs and fantastic sporting facilities. Jumeirah Beach sports a number of hotel properties with its calm, shallow, warm waters. Shuttle buses are often provided at hotels not directly located on the beach. Cool off at the fantastic Wild Wadi water park with its 23 adrenalin-pumping rides.
If pure indulgence is your thing, then you've come to the right place. In those fabulous Dubai hotels, youll find some of the world's best restaurants hosted by world-class chefs.
Heritage and Culture
Visit 'Old Dubai' in the Bastakiya district and view the traditional works of local weavers and potters at the Heritage Village. The restored 400-year-old architecture of Hatta mountain village is a fascinating sight, as is the residence of the former Sheikh. Visit the beautiful Jumeirah mosque, and in Dubai's oldest building, Al Fahidi fort, explore the Dubai National Museum.
Action and Adventure
For those who like to live life to the full and seek adrenalin inducing activities - ride a camel, or drive over sand dunes out in the desert? Try 'wadi bashing', taking a 4-wheel-drive into the dry riverbeds near the mountains, or even attempt to ski down the desert sand slopes. The new snow dome even offers real skiing.
