Wonders of Dubai

Dubai is such an exciting and diverse travel destination that it attracts millions of visitors annually – particularly during the winter months when the weather is perfect for every single activity from sunbathing and scuba diving to camel racing and desert safaris.If you’re planning a trip to Dubai here’s a guide to the types of attractions and activities you and your family can plan on enjoying.

First things first, as stated the winter months from November through to March are the most popular time of the year to visit the Emiratdesert-84417es. The weather is perfect with daily sunshine and high temperatures but the sun is not at its most intense which means that visitors can actually get out and about and not have to avoid the desert heat that radiates excessively in Dubai in the summer.

In January each year Dubai plays host to the now world famous Dubai Shopping Festival, a retail extravaganza that annually attracts in excess of 3.3 million visitors who come to enjoy the month long festival and associated celebrations.

Once you’ve shopped in the gold souk and the incredibly luxurious malls and marketplaces you might like to get away from the crowds and head out away from the emirate into the desert on a camel or jeep safari; alternatively you could try sand skiing, dune or wadi driving and then have a desert picnic feast.burj-al-arab-699451
Heading back into Dubai there are two great ways to get to know more about this historic and incredibly interesting city – a visitor can either take to the air or the water ways and get a unique glimpse of the emirate. Taking an aerial tour of Dubai in a helicopter is a once in a lifetime experience; or for those who prefer something more sedate why not cruise Dubai’s waterways in a traditional wooden dhow.

For those who’re after a more action packed experience from their vacation in Dubai why not try thunder bowl, horse riding in the desert, go karting, golf, ice skating or deep sea fishing? And for those with traveling to Dubai with children there are a whole host of exciting adventure parks to try from Dubai Wonderland to Wild Wadi, from Magic Planet to the soon to be completed Snow Dome.

Whatever type of event, activity or attraction you’re after Dubai can satisfy your every whim. With daily cultural events, nightly entertainment activities and a whole world within one emirate waiting to be discovered.

  1. Nice one man! Really nice photos. I feel like I’ve seen so many photos of dubai but these were all a fresh perspective. I was actually curious about the weather also I had a friend that lived there for 3 months and said it was the hottest place on earth pretty much haha but I suppose he needed to be there in winter.

  9. Dubai is a crazy place. It’s hard to believe a place that this exists where you can do so many activities including ice skating in the desert. I wouldn’t want that ice rink’s energy bill.

  11. Really lovely pictures of Dubai. Would really love to know some really good places to eat out in Dubai? Are there any Michelin starred restaurants in Dubai? Where should we go for a desert safari?

      there are amazing restaurants in Dubai and yes Michelin starred as well, they are bit pricey obviously :). I had tried Rhodes W1 at Dubai Marina and it was amazing experience. Dubai Marina is a very good place for dining. There are many operators who can plan your desert safari tours. it depends on how many nights you are going to spend and what sort of accommodation you want they have amazing resorts with private pools. but definitely do quad bikes its great fun

  12. I’d be up for cruising the waterways in a dhow. Would love to see a photo of one as the word sounds otherworldly. Not sure I’ll make it that way, but if I do, I now know some things to look into.

  13. I visit Dubai at least once or twice a year. Dubai is a wonder and I find something new to visit everytime I am there. Last time I went to Miracle Garden and hopefully next time I can do a skydive there.

I am looking forward attend the Dubai Shopping Festival and get good deals as I am a self-confessed shopaholic. What do you think are the best products to buy there? Golds and electronics?
