Things to do
Wake up early for a Hot Air Balloon Flight or a Seaplane flight to get a bird’s eye view of Dubai’s architectural marvels. While the Balloon Flight consumes most of your day, the seaplane flight is just for about 40 minutes leaving you with time for shopping, visiting man made islands, Burj Khalifa and relaxing on the Jumeirah beach.
If you are the kind that is interested in delving into the history of a city and its culture, then spend at least half of your day in the Bastakia Quarter that proposes excellent opportunities to appreciate Dubai’s bygone era. Wind through the old, narrow lanes, visit the textile souk, ride the traditional abra on the Dubai Creek and check the Dubai museum. The area throws in many surprises compared to the modern binge of Dubai.
If you want something different try the helicopter ride, parachute jump/skydiving, or visit Ski Dubai and Wild Wadi Water Park with an afternoon tea at the Burj Al Arab.
Book a Big Bus Tour – the easiest and the most relaxing way to explore Dubai
Book the half-day Big Bus hop-on, hop-off tour followed by an Evening Desert Safari if you want to mix it up.
If you have arrived in Dubai in the night, you can select the Morning Desert Safari of three hours, then allot the remaining day for other activities like shopping, and cruise along the Dubai creek.
