Dubai started off innocently enough, as a small harbor and port. Now among the richest cities worldwide, it’s also a major financial center. At the same time, it’s grown into a major tourist attraction for people who want to experience its mix of Arabian tradition and modern amenities. Just about the most popular ways to visit the city is through a Dubai all inclusive package. If these experiences aren’t included in your trip, you may want to schedule time to see them on your own.
1 . Dubai’s Beaches
You may very well have access to the beach and the stunning water as a part of the all inclusive vacation, especially if you are staying in one of Dubai’s more exclusive resorts. If not, you can and enjoy the white sands and the Arabian Sea at no cost at Open Beach. This is sometimes known as Russian Beach, thanks to its popularity with Russian vacationers. At times, this beach gets pretty crowded, and finding a sunbed can be difficult. Umm Suqeim, another public beach, is well known for its picturesque of the unique Burj Al Arab. The sail-shaped Burj Al Arab is one of the world’s most high-class hotels.
2 . Burj Khalifa
Almost every all inclusive Dubai trip will already offer paid admission to the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa. From atop the world’s tallest building, you will experience extraordinary views of Dubai. But you’ll want to do more than look at the rest of the city from the building’s deck. Make an effort to check out its architecture and design. Quite possibly the best way to do this is by visiting the top-floor bar at The Address. This is a hotel across the lake from Burj Khalifa. From the window of this cocktail bar, you’ll find both breathtaking views of the towering wonder and a unique vantage point for the dancing fountains below.
3 . The Desert
Your Dubai all inclusive holidays may include the price of an overnight desert safari, but most do not. Some people opt for a desert safari with camping but many others choose a retreat, resort or hotel instead. If you’re not the outdoors type, the cost to stay in one of the Arabian desert retreats outside Dubai is very much worth it. Safaris usually include off-road riding on the dunes and camel rides. A few also add in Arabian feasts, belly dancing and other traditional cultural experiences.
4 . View It From the Air
As the home of the world’s tallest building, many visitors spend a lot of their Dubai trip looking up. A flight above the city can offer a unique bird’s eye view. There are a number of flight tour companies in town. There are some that employ seaplanes and some that use helicopters. Unless it’s already included with the Dubai all inclusive holiday you purchased, you can choose which you’d prefer. You’ll spot shimmering white sand of Duabi’s beaches, the aquamarine Arabian Sea, and the skyscrapers of the city center. Your tour guide will point out Burj Al Arab and The Palms and The World, and may even give you a better look at Burj Khalifa’s pinnacle.
5. Deira Souqs
You’ve probably seen pictures of the Diera Souqs, traditional street markets in the Diera neighborhood of Dubai. Wood boats known as abras can take you across Dubai Creek, making the trek an truly memorably Arabian experience. There is a large, bustling selection of traditional street markets just across the creek from the modern city center. There are markets for almost anything you can imagine, from jewelry and gold to spices to textiles and tapestries. The gold souq is the most popular of these markets. Gold isn’t the deal it was previously in Dubai, but there are still countless stores hidden away in alleyways and corners.
