Don’t Visit Dubai Without Doing These Epic Things

Visit the Spice and Gold Souk


Near Al Bastakiya, (the most historical part of Dubai) you will find the traditional Arab markets (known as souks), the oldest in Dubai. These souks have a traditional charm that you have to live on your trip to this imposing city.


If you visit them, do not miss the opportunity to buy any of the unique spices of the place. Here the custom is to bargain over prices, therefore, never accept a price immediately.


If you want to, you can get things up to 50% off, but you must be patient and kind when negotiating prices.

If you know the current gold prices and you love jewelry, you will undoubtedly find huge quantities of them at prices that can hardly be offered elsewhere.



Desert Safari


The desert safari Dubai is one of the most famous activities. You can choose from a wide range of different safaris, each with its additional benefits, among which 4 x 4 transport and barbecue-style dinners stand out.

For all this and much more, Zabeel Park is the ideal place to relax inside Dubai.


Enjoy Jumeirah Beach


Most of the beaches in Dubai belong to some luxury hotels and, therefore, are not public or free. However, Jumeirah beach is beautiful, free and where you will enjoy excellent views of the Burj Al-Arab hotel.

Enjoy a Delicious Brunch


Brunch is a meal where breakfast and lunch are combined, hence its name, which is an acronym in English that is formed by joining the word breakfast (breakfast) and lunch (lunch).


Brunch is a very famous culinary tradition in Dubai that takes place mainly on Fridays to celebrate the start of the weekend.


Arabic food


The best hotels and restaurants in Dubai are famous for their delicious Friday brunches.


If you want to enjoy a delicious brunch on your visit to Dubai, make sure you don’t arrive on Ramadan dates or the Muslim month of fasting.


Marvel at the Water Fountain Show


If you still don’t know what to do in Dubai at night, we suggest you see the magnificent spectacle of the water fountain at the Dubai Mall, near Burj Khalifa, so you can marvel at the water dance.


The water show is very short, since it lasts about four minutes, but sitting in the comfort of a cafeteria and enjoying it is still a magical experience.




If you want a free view, you can visit the Apple store inside the Dubai Mall and go up to the balcony.


Keep in mind that the number of seats is limited and the place is very likely to fill up very quickly. This is so for tourists who attend and arrive from very early. If you can’t find seats, you can enjoy the show from the front.


If you visit the Burj Khalifa building and buy the VIP pass, you will enjoy an exclusive view of the show from its terrace while having breakfast. There is a wide variety of restaurants around that can also function as viewpoints.


Take a Cruise


Marina Dubai


We all love cruises, and touring the port of Dubai is one of the best experiences you can live in this city to please all your tastes. This will allow you to enjoy beautiful views and incredible buildings.


You can take advantage of the cruise to enjoy a delicious dinner with Dhow Cruise Dubai Marina. This is a great opportunity to get to know the city from a new point of view.
